daffodil daze

i get paid to play in my clients gardens. i design and maintain some gorgeous properties. how many people can say that they LOVE their job, their passion? i'm a lucky girl.

but what i really love...

is a NATURAL garden.

the daffodils are showing their happy faces in tennessee.

and so am i.

Thanks for the sunshine!

Your photographs are just about as beautiful as your paintings my dear. All I know is, maintaining my own garden is enough work, let alone somebody else's. You obviously like to work hard!

I love traveling down an old road and seeing mounds of daffodils or iris, knowing that a home once stood there. Gone now, but nature's beauty remains. They do make me think that God is smiling on us.

Oh, Erin!
I wish I could say I Love my job, but all I can say is, I like it...

Well, you are a lucky girl!
I agree... A natural garden , is my kind of garden, too.
Your images are wonderful.

Thank you for sending me spring feelings.

Have a wonderful day!

Your photos are so pretty - I really like using the bright blue chair and the quilt in the photos. I love daffodils !

Bonnie said...

Just wanting you to know your comment over at my blog sent me into laughing fits. You crack me up!

Thanks for the laugh, I needed a good one. Hope the paint fumes have died down a little. :)

Enjoy your weekend!

I did the same job as you for 25 years.It was the best job I ever had and I miss it tremendously. There is nothing better in the whole world than working outside in a garden where one can find peace and joy. Thanks for sharing.

Just discovered your blog and really love it. Can relate a lot. I like your playlist and have lifted it. We like a lot of the same music. Great photos btw.

Sweet profession! I call the forest that surrounds our tiny house our "garden". I didn't plant it, but I do spend a great deal of time out walking around and enjoying it. :)
The foundation garden around our house is going into it's 2nd year - hopefully I'll be able to add to it faster than the bunnies can eat it.
Love your daffs, Erin!

Beautiful photos. That blanket is a perfect place for a picnic or meditation ... or a nap!
