Happy Friday, friends!
Do you have big plans for the weekend? I hope you get to do something wonderful, wherever you are!!
Here, we are staying home all weekend and getting “projects” done…like cleaning out the chicken coop, and gardening chores :)
Guess what!! My lilac bush sprouted back very happily this spring! I was so excited to see the pretty purple blooms…so I brought them inside to enjoy for a few days last week.
The purple is a nice contrast to the vintage fishing basket, don’t you think?
And the floppy garden hat belonged to my sweet mom, whom I miss dearly this time of year…as she adored working in her garden too, wearing her hat proudly :)
I also added some lilac blooms to a vintage cutting board.
There is no better therapy for me, than when I’m in my garden working…do any of you relate with this same feeling? I guess it has something to do with the long, cold gray winter that we endured this year. It seemed as though a bit of my soul was sleeping…it was like I lost my “mojo” for decorating or fluffing my nest the last several months. I lost the desire to change things around, refresh a room, or let alone blog about NOT decorating. I guess that explains my extended absence during the winter. I was hibernating with my family. Snuggling, reading, learning, pinning…
And now I’m awake :) Feeling as though the sun shining is God extending His hands to say “get moving, get busy, create, and pick up that camera again”. And I’m so happy it’s Spring! Isn’t God’s creation of the seasons even to bring us exactly what we need?
And here are a few photos from the “flower gardens” around our house…so many things are blooming right now. This is called an “almond bush”.
And the red buds are just about all gone…
And that is what’s blooming around here!! What about your flower gardens? Are you planting anything I should know about? Are you awake from the long, cold winter yet?
I’d love for you to follow my Garden Pinterest Board HERE. I am always pinning beautiful garden ideas and garden sheds…which I’m hoping is our next project to start on. I’ll keep you updated :)
Have a fabulous weekend!
