We were so lucky to have moved into a house where a botanist once lived. Every spring, we end up having hundreds of completely new flowers that weren't there the year before.
Flowering Quince Bushes
This year, I also tried my hand at growing about 200 vegis, perennials and decorative grasses from seeds. Im a HUGE do-it-yourselfer so, I made seedling pots out of old magazines, news papers and junk mail to keep cost down and also be good to the environment.
Some of my seedlings (in paper pots) on our three season porch.
I love spring by our house because all of the animals that live on our land have their babies!

One of the downfalls of spring however, is the pigeons that live in the top of our barn go NUTTY. Every day for a week it seemed like someone was getting caught in our gutters. I OF COURSE couldnt just leave them there to die, so I attempted to scale our 5 story tall barn on a ladder.. which was HORRIFYING!
Our 120 year old barn (note the ladder near the silo ha)
I got all the way up there and the pigeon flew away on his own.. What a wiener!
