Welcome to Spring in my new home! The first thing I had to do was hang a Spring wreath by the front door.
I am constantly amazed at how the Dogwood always blooms for Easter.
I love the significance of the Dogwood flower. And it never matters when Easter comes - early or late - it blooms for Easter Sunday.
I have two big areas of my flower beds that had these little sprouts pop up and didn't know until today what kind of flower they were. I think they are Lilies of the Valley. Am I right?
This huge Hosta is in my front flower bed. It's about four foot across.
These Hostas are in the back yard under a tree. I love the way they get larger as they go. I guess it has something to do with the sunshine or lack of.
In the back yard are many colorful flowers. All of the borders are these tiny violets. So sweet!
Now to my latest project!! I did an arrangement of stacked plates in the guest room. This is a yellow room with the red toile.
I cannot take credit for this idea. When I first started reading blogs, one of my favorite was Tina at Cherry Hill Cottage. She had one of these in a bedroom and I have always wanted to make one. It was fun but quite time consuming.
I'm just hoping that if we have a tornado (which Tulsa did have last night but not in my area) or an earthquake, it won't knock my dishes off of the wall. Do you know that Oklahoma has had more earthquakes that California? Scary, eh? It has something to do with the oil drilling they are doing. I hope they stop soon. Very soon!!
I also hung this picture. A very dear friend of mine was moving and had had this in her home as long as I have known her (which is about 50 years). She didn't have room for it in her new home and gave it to me. I have always loved this sweet picture.
So, I'm trying to get the guest room all done as the first room to check off of my list. I don't seem to be progressing as much as I wish I was. But, I will get there and am enjoying every minute of it.
