Flowers in my Garden

I am so excited about all the flowers that are blooming in my yard.  This is all new to me, since we moved into our new house.  I'm so thankful to our previous owners for planting such beauties out there and everyday I find a new flower blooming.  And by the way, I am loving the South!!  The weather is just gorgeous right now, actually we have had months now of beautiful weather.  I am enjoying it now, because soon summer will kick in and then it's miserable with the heat and humidity, feels like a sauna come June-August.  Oh well, have to go to the pool or the beach and cool down.  Here are some pictures of my flowers in my yard.  Enjoy!

Savannah in the Spring

Sorry, I haven't blogged in awhile, I took a trip with my husband to Italy and Spain, now I'm back and ready to share my adventures.

I have been enjoying downtown Savannah lately.  I think Savannah is such a romantic, beautiful, old city, that just takes you back in time, every time you visit.  I am never bored with Savannah.  I seem to discover something new each time I'm there.  It's lovely during all the seasons, but I think it's prettiest in the spring.  I wanted to share with y'all some photos that I took this past weekend.  They're with my iphone, so not the greatest, but you can imagine all the beauty that is there.

If you have never visited Savannah or Charleston, I highly recommend you do so.  They are one of a kind here in the States.  You will feel like you've been transported in time and you will experience the southern charm, both of these 2 cities are magical.
