Spring Blooms

Happy Spring!

Part of me hesitates to post such simple beauties…are they too simple and not exciting enough?

When I remember the long grey winter, I say “no,” blooms are miracles to be celebrated! The scent of lilacs alone is enough to send me into a coma of happiness :)

These hellebores have also taken my breath away. I am now the proud owner of several plantings in my amazing Garden Backyard! And after they are cut they last a long time in water.

I know there have been many pics of my camelias but they are so beautiful and still are showing off. I think I may name our new home: Camelia Cottage.

This was a rainy day looking out of our master bedroom into our backyard. What beauty! and my Farm Chicks mug from my friend “T”!

The simple things really are the BEST things!!

We did some special decorating for Easter cause it was also my 2 sis in-laws birthdays! My nieces and daughter helped a lot! and of course, the whole family brought food food and more food! Pulled pork on croissants, broccoli salad, deviled eggs, fruit punch, waldorf salad, carrot soup and desserts: lemon pudding cake, black forest cake, cheesecake and more!

Here are my 2 sis in-laws:
