Sweet Tulips And Other Things....


Hello sweet blogger friends....How have you all been this week? For me it is a quiet week...lots and lots of rain and chilly temps here. Today is the first warmth we have felt in a very long time! The tulips are just gorgeous and I love just looking at them! I know they can't last too much longer and how I will miss them when they are gone. The bunches of lilac blossoms are growing bigger every day and on the West side of the porch a few are opening and Ohhhhh the fragrance is to die for! Heavenly! The Lily Of The Valley are starting to send up their bloom shoots of exquisite little creamy white bells and their fragrance is heavenly as well and their leaves so big and green....just gorgeous....


I decided to add among the flowers from the gardens, the sachets I have been working on....You can see more of them at THE RUFFLED ROSE I invite you will visit SHABBY COTTAGE SHOPS for Thursday Marketplace.....we have so many new members and lovely and unique shops for almost anything your heart desires....




Yes, this is a dandelion....not in our yard! They wouldn't dare! When we were walking I took my camera to get a shot of one because this year, the blooms are so big! The whole plant large and healthy...I am sure it is all the snow we had!


This beautiful pink rock is one I brought back from Arizona. I found it under a bridge on a back road outside of Prescott....







I won't be doing Pink Saturday this week as we are going to be busy, but I will catch up the next Saturday.....
Blowing you hugs and kisses!

Your tulips are so pretty and I love the sachets that you have been making. We have had the cool weather, but the rain has been going around us. It was 42 when I went to work this morning. I am taking a few minutes before I call it a day to visit a few of my friends. I could read for a few days, but couldn't leave comments. Have a wonderful weekend. Your Missouri Friend
