Last year on June 10th, I was struggling with severe daily headaches so didn't post anything. This year, it was a more regular day -- yay! Warning: This post will contain a lot of pictures of our yard :)
Rachel is almost always the first one awake after me. This morning she was doing puzzles and crafting in the playroom. This is a preview of summer mornings with no plans.
After this I went to work and I don't like taking pictures at work so then I came home and Dave and Sam had plans in the evening, so Rachel and I spent some time in the front yard.
I really wanted to get some mowing done and weed this front bed.
I was super excited because not only did I get the bed weeded but I also got my impatiens planted! Whooo hooo! Rachel helped with watering.
She also tried her hand at mowing. We have a reel mower so it takes some effort to push.
I was trying to get a "before" picture of this overgrown bed and Rachel wanted to photo bomb it. I haven't gotten around to weeding this bed yet. Maybe this weekend...
I just breathe easier when the yard is cleaned up.
My Starburst petunias are putting on a show!
I am almost done edging the day lily bed, despite the construction mess in the background. Thankfully on weekends I hang laundry out and it hides the mess, somewhat.
Speaking of "putting on a show," the rosebush is amazing this year. My mom and dad will look at this picture and think about how I need to start staking it! Hahaha!!!

I seriously think our yard shines brightest in June! I just LOVE hanging out in our backyard and enjoying all the flowers in bloom.
