The month of April has many celebrations...first being Good Friday and Easter Sunday!
We have birthdays and anniversaries to honor also!
There is something so very special about Easter Sunday...
so many memories of church services, family dinners,
new Easter dresses, Egg Hunts and Easter baskets....
I was ever so thankful to see our
Japanese Maple show her spring colors.....
Our Texas Lilac Vitex tree is beginning to bloom...
I am so thankful this lasted through the freeze!
My Roberta's fragrant daylilies are looking
strong and healthy!
I planted these shortly after we moved in....
the landscaper suggested we pull these up....
and I said,"no way!"
This is one thing I love and they grow beautifully!
So many have lost a good portion of their landscaping....
the freeze was too long and too cold for our area....
I hope this does not happen again next year!
As you can see we have probably lost
most of our Indian Hawthorne's which we have
on both sides and front of our home!
We had all the ones in the back, removed last year
when we re-landscaped all of our backyard!
Our resident garden expert, Neil Sperry has
advised NOT to replant Indian Hawthorne's!
The sun came out, the temperature warmed to the 70's
and it turned out to be an afternoon to sit outside and enjoy!
Our neighbor's sweet Marmalade visits us daily for a little treat
and allows us to show him our affection!
in the low 60's....a perfect day to make a pot
of Mother's homemade vegetable soup!
as I had not been IN THE STORE for a long time....
I wanted to purchase a few items new to the MAGNOLIA line
for the guest bedroom makeover, and found these
darling little succulent planters in the Bullseye area....
a mere $3.00 EACH!
this year, so we shall wish them a Happy Easter Sunday
across the miles.....just the darling and me!
a marvelous ending to a lovely and blessed Easter!
We hope you all had a delightful day and felt
blessed by the meaning of Easter!
