 Some pretty photos in our backyard by Mary Clare!

Happy boys at a t-ball game!


 Steven Joseph gets so, so excited to play pitcher!  He usually gets to play it for one inning.  One happy baseball boy!

Just like at BopBop and Grampatti's house, the naughty squirrels like to climb the trees and steal from the bird feeder!

I'd really like to get poor Mary's garden looking pretty for her this month!  I'm thinking maybe we should have bought the bigger statue.  She looks so tiny!  I was hoping to have a May Crowning one Saturday morning, but I can't figure out a date to host it, so I'm not sure if it'll happen.  I probably just need to choose a random afternoon and do it.  I wanted it to be a mother-daughter tea party, but maybe that's not practical with busy weekends in May.  I'd love any ideas from botanically-gifted folks about how to make this area move up to the {pretty} section soon!
