Funday Sunday!

It's been super busy around our house lately! Jon has been very busy with work and has been out of town several times in the past few weeks. I've been wanting to get in the garden and spruce things up, but with him being gone, and having record amounts of rain in April, it just hasn't left me anytime to dig around. While today wasn't particularly a nice day, it wasn't raining either, so I figure I had better get in there and plant some of the goodies I got the other day.
When I was at the florist 2 years ago getting bouquets ready for our wedding, I walked in, brought the color swatch from my bridesmaids dresses, and told her I wanted a flower that was similar in color. I never saw any of the bouquets until the day of the wedding (crazy, right?), but the florist couldn't have done a better job picking out the most beautiful arrangement, especially when I told her I wasn't picky and didn't care too much what they looked like! Anyway, I fell in love with the flower and have been wanting to plant them in my own garden ever since that day. I've been having a tough time finding them, but I stumbled upon them this weekend at Lowe's with my mom. And the best part? They were 50% off. So I bought every last one they had!
It's somewhat hard to see from these photos, but it's the purple flower, or blue agapanthus. The flower is native to South Africa, and means "love" from agape. **The white flower is an oriental lily. 

Getting dirrty in the garden. My nephew Timmy wanted to be in the picture.

Cameron helped!

Did you photoshop your lawn or is it really that green

No I didn't photoshop our lawn, silly. Remember Jon's obsession with yard work? That and all the rain!
