Blossom and Bubbles

May 11, 2013
We have been eagerly waiting for the blossom to come out in Grandma’s garden. This the house than my husband and his sister grew up in and I love that Lucas gets to play in the same garden that they grew up having so much fun in. This week was our lucky week; the blossom had appeared and in between the rain showers we ran outside to play. Lucas’ cousin came to have some fun too. As our garden is still very much a work in progress I can only dream of having such loveliness in our back garden. I do hope that one day ours looks as nice as Grandmas does!
I say this all the time but you really do appreciate more of your surroundings when you have small children, everything is different when you see it through their eyes. Things that I would often walk right past without noticing become such a novelty when you want to show it off to a toddler.
It will be a lovely way to see our boys growing up together and we can look back at the spring photos with the blossom tree in the background. These are some of my favourite photos of Lucas at the moment, and I love taking photos that document each season as it passes. I love to think that every year the boys will be looking out for the blossom and next year Lucas’ baby cousin will be there with them too.

    I love seeing blossom on the trees it’s so pretty . That garden looks so lovely and it must be wonderful to see Lucas enjoying the same fun and games within it that his daddy before him did. That blossom is stunning x

      I really wish I could hunt out a picture of James in the garden when he was younger for a Flashback Friday but he has been surprisingly vague about it 🙂 It is a lovely tree x

    What a lovely garden, Lucas looks very tiny next to the blossom tree, here’s to more dry days so the children can spend more time in Grandma’s lovely garden, thanks for linking up to Country Kids.

      Ha, I thought that he looked so small too! We love Grandma’s garden, trying to use it to inspire me (I am not at all green-fingered!) x

    Such beautiful pictures and a gorgeous garden! My Grandma used to have a big beautiful cherry blossom tree in her garden that we loved to look at and the boys loved to climb. I’m sure it is lovely seeing your little one play in the garden where your husband used to play. I hope summer isn’t too far round the corner xx

      Thank you, we love to go and play in Grandmas garden, even more so now Lucas has mastered the step so I can relax! Don’t blossom tree’s seem to be special? My friend told me that the Chinese have a tradition of having their pictures taken in from of a blossom tree for good luck, I thought that was lovely x

      I just hope we get some summer so we can take full advantage of Grandma’s garden! Lucas can’t get enough of the outdoors; I’m sure he would enjoy Joan’s garden all the same!

      It is so pretty and it seems we have been waiting a long time for it this year! I think I was more interested that Lucas x
