Oh this past week was amazing....the weather was warm and sunny and there is were so many things to see and enjoy and get inspired by....so we are spending most of our days outdoors...looking at amazing gardens and working on our own garden too....

Blogger had some hick ups and so did our home computer....but we seem to be ok now.....sorry for the late post for Sweet Saturdays.....

This plant is so beautiful.....Cole says that the flowers are upside down....so we had to take a photo from the ground up!!!! The botanical name of this amazing plant is

Fritillaria imperialis or you can also call it.... Crown imperial or Kaiser's Crown......
 
I also thought I would include some photos of my sweet little guy...for Sweet Saturdays......to me he is as sweet as things can get!!!
