the difference a day makes

we are certainly embracing spring at the drake house!  After going to the Bloom and Garden expo...plus multiple trips to Home Depot I think we've finally got some color and life in the landscape...or trying to at least.  We got the most beautiful hanging baskets from the expo...


When Josh bought his house he did some major landscape work and planted these rose bushes.  They are putting out such pretty flowers this year!  They starting opening up last friday so I thought I'd take a picture of the "biggest one" on friday afternoon...


then we woke up saturday morning and that same flower looked like this! 



WOAH!  the bushes really are making it very pretty outside our house...and we didn't even have to do anything to them! (turns out i've only got a green-ish thumb...but I'm trying to learn)  Hopefully all these nasty rain showers we've been having will indeed bring beautiful May flowers!
