Mom and I planted candy lilies this year. Here is the first bloom on my plant.
Matthew just loves these little cars I saved off the curb. I bet he doesn't mind I'm a dumpster diver. In fact, I know he doesn't because he was excited when I saved his bike off the curb!
Scamp always has to be in on the action.
Color and blooms.
And the most exciting miracle of all. I planted some "oriental" irises at the end of May. Correction: transplanted some. I have had the worst time getting them to take. When I weeded today I found 3 sprouts coming up! I'm hoping some of the rest of them will decide to take off as well.
Ever wonder why this site is called About a Bug? Well, that would be my fault. Hours after I had Matthew, I started calling him my bug-a-boo. He was just so cute and precious. Slowly over time he became my bug and more family members adopted that as a nickname. When we decided to start the blog, it seemed only appropriate to call it "about a bug," because isn't everything about the baby? Matthew thinks so.
