Soft & Sweet

Hello Everyone,
     I just popped in to share some soft & sweet images with you before I go to a photo club meeting.
Breakfast in bed anyone?

Our lilacs are in bud now but these are some from a couple of years ago.

I love pink and aqua-so soft and sweet!

Some white china in the corner cupboard that my husband built for me.
More soft aqua.
Oh! soon we will be eating all our meals out here again!

Soft and sweet blossoms!

I was doing some pruning and clean up in the garden today before the rain drove me indoors.Our grass is getting greener by the minute!

Thank you so much for visiting me today.

What gorgeous photos--I adore that soft aqua china!

Linda said...

Your lilacs are in bloom already?! WOW! It looks as though it's going to be weeks yet before we see ours. Sigh. I never before realized how much longer your growing season is than ours. I imagine your photo club is learning lots from YOU! :-)

After a very hectic week (and it is only Wednesday!) I traveled over from several links to land here. How incredibly soothing and serene. I was attracted by your blog name as I live in Aiken, South Carolina. Thank you for respite.
