Finding rusty old junk is fun! Nevertheless, I have found that no matter how much "stuff" I find and collect, only God can fully satisfy my heart. Matthew 6:19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

Spring in the Garden Part 1

                                        Its Spring!

                                       Our little garden bunny welcomes you!

                                                 The Azaleas are already blooming

                                             The creeping phlox cradle emerging "pinks"

and the quintessential spring pansies are showing off their lovely hues...

The daffodils are already spent, and the tulips are earlier than usual

My beloved Hostas are coming up fast, so I am watching for frost warnings...

The little blooms on the vinca groundcover are so sweet!

                                I see the Hen and Chicks (and chickweed...) survived the winter too!

The window box is all decked out for Easter now...

 Can you believe I almost threw away this sweet bunny because one of his ears
was broken?  Of course I couldn't do that! I found a great spot for him anyway. Reduce, reuse, repurpose--- that's a junkaholics motto!

Last year I planted this tulip  in early spring
(I'm crossing my fingers it will bloom).
 The fern doesn't normally come out this fully until late April or early May. The oregano in the pot never died out this winter!  The unusually warm winter, and especially hot March temperatures have caused some strange happenings in the garden but have definitely put me in a gardening mood!

Just a little touch of spring on the porch...

... and an Easter wreath with a vintage stuffed pillow bunny hangs on the door to greet visitors. Why don't you come inside to see my other spring and Easter decorations? Just check out my next post!

Have a great spring!

  1. I loved this! Seeing the pictures of my mom and dad were awesome too. Thank you for that. I can't believed I noticed treasures on here that I didn't notice when we were there. It's all beautiful!
