Spring Cheer!

Hello everyone,
     I hope you all had a lovely weekend. We had a cold one here especially since our wood pellet stove in the kitchen broke down on Saturday. However, it is going to warm up again this week so the snow will start melting again.
 In the meantime, I have a little spring cheer for us to enjoy.

The wire basket and the bunny were both gifts from my sister-in-law. I am always amazed at how well she knows my taste.

The robins nest came from a tree by our house.

Hopping by the bunny trail-Easter is on it's way!

Gerber daisy and a campanula.
They were selling these campanula's at the grocery store last week and they can go into the garden when it warms up.



 Well, just sending a little spring cheer your way!

I am joining Cielo for Show Off Your Cottage Monday today at the house in the roses

Thank you for hopping in!

Carolyn

Thank you for the Spring cheer! It all look so nice. I love the basket, flowers and nest. It look like summer. It has been a great, sunny day in my place, in the North of Norway.

Hi Carolyn, wasnt' that a chilly weekend?? I'm glad the sun was shining but that wind - brrrr. I love your spring vignette and I love those old fashioned bunnies with the 'backpacks'. I almost bought a campanula the other day and am hoping they'll still have some this week ;-) Looking forward to warmer days soon. Pamela

Beautiful post. Love the bunny and the basket. Hooray for warmer weather.

Carol said...

Thank you Carolyn! Sweet bunny and lovely photographs. It is hard to believe it is nearly April. 18 degrees F last night. I have a wood stove. I hope you have a back up for your pellet stove. Of course it would not be as toasty warm and snug. ;>)

Dearest Carolyn,

So sorry for you having had your stove break down; just when it is cold still. That's Murphy's law I guess. This collage with Easter bunny looks so promising for spring; hope it will soon change in your area!

Lots of love,

Mariette

A charming breath of spring, Carolyn, filled with delightful details. I hope you are having more spring-like weather this week. Here it is a mixture of light showers and sunshine. March came in like a lion but is definitely going out like a lamb. Have a lovely week! – g

Dear Carolyn,

It's good to hear the snow is melting and spring is arriving on your island. Your flowers look really pretty!

I hope your pellet stove will be fixed soon.

Lieve groet & happy day,

Lovely little rabbit. Wish I also had such a talented sister-in-law.

Thanks for your Spring cheer! It was really needed today, because it's snowing in Skövde (Sweden):(.

Take care
Maria

Ooooooh! It's so pretty! I love Gerber daisies and I will have to look for the purple flower, it would be nice to have that in my garden this year.
Your sis-in-law really does know your style!
