We've been home from Disney for over a week now but I'm still not 'back' to a normal routine.  I'm getting there, until I do... 
Just a few random things happening with me this week.
 Bought these huge strawberries and they were delicious!
 Filled up my thrifted jar with gum balls.
 Love how fun it looks up there in my kitchen.
 We have grass growing where the tree fell over during Hurricane Sandy (and lots of fire wood!).
As much of the root ball was removed as they could get out and the hole was filled in in with dirt, then it was all seeded.
( Close up of the grass coming in under the straw.)
It looked like this a few weeks ago.
Remember when it looked like this back there?
 I can smell honeysuckle in the air. It reminds me of my childhood when we used to pull the stamen through the flower to get to the honey.
They don't seem as juicy as my childhood honeysuckle, but this one actually looked pretty juicy.
The Knock Out Roses have really popped.  The rest of the garden needs some attention. Weeds are taking over!
It looks like these day lillies are about to pop.
I waiting impatiently for the hydrangeas to bloom.
 I'm not sure what these flowers are but the bees sure love them.
How's that for random. What's new with you?

The backyard is gorgeous! I love all of the flowers and everything blooming!

And the gumballs look so fun in the thrifted jar! Its so cheerful, I'd be stealing gumballs from it all day long! (But I have an issue with gum...I love it way too much!)

I miss strawberries. I haven't had any in over a week, guess that means I have to go grocery shopping! I hope I can find some really big ones :)
