Cheerful Yellow



Hello everyone,

I am hoping to spread a little
bit of cheerful yellow here
today.

I think we all need a break
from the grim news we keep hearing.


I am so looking forward to some
color in our garden.

I see new growth everyday in
the garden and while the
daffodils are poking up
it will be a few weeks
before we have a big display.



A sunny yellow porch


Barrels of pretty tulips



A cheerful quilt and some
spring daffodils.



A coffecake with a pretty
bouquet.


A little yellow teacup
with a beautiful rose.



My yellow bird magnolia



Love the little yellow finches in
the garden.


Antique china with a beautiful
bouquet of yellow roses from
our garden.

The snow is going here and the birds
are returning to the garden. I can't wait
to get out to the garden and start getting
it  ready for the season once again. 

Thank you for visitng and please
take care!

Our Garden Lilacs





Hello everyone,

I have been doing some garden
dreaming here lately while I
wait for the garden to return.
I hope you will enjoy dreaming
along with me..

The above lilac is called Sensation
and it is one of my favorites.


Lilac season is one of my favorite times
in the garden especially as  some of
their blooms overlap with the peony
season.

I love these Preston lilacs as they bloom
later than the French lilacs extending
the season and they also have a lovely
sweet fragrance.
     
                           


A basket of beautiful lilacs.



I love big bouquets of fragrant lilacs.


We have lots of different varieties
of lilacs  in different colors.





My kitchen sink full of lilacs

Some years my lilacs bloom better
then others...... last year was a good
year for  blooms.


I had a lilac theme going on here on
our screened porch. I love
the very old handmade quilt
on the old iron bed.


I always enjoy making collages.




It seems like our time of isolating is
going to continue for a least several
more weeks so our garden will be
our safe haven this spring/summer
for sure. Now, if the weather would
just co operate so we can get out there
and enjoy digging in the dirt again!

If any of you would like to see my old

Stay safe and stay well!
