Flowers For Easter...

 Pansies and violas are what I bought to put into some containers.  I like the burgundy and yellow.
 I did not want to get too many...you know, just in case it gets a bit cold at night. But the store had these outside. I bought a flat of this mix.  Gave my daughter, Angie, a couple for a container on her porch. I bought a couple plants of something called Stock. I have never had this flower before. Always willing to try something new. It was a deep rose color.
I wish all of you a Happy Easter and a day filled with love of family and friends.  xo

It's Planting Time...

I think I am going to flower shop today. It seems to truly be  Spring now. So I can't wait to plant some thing, anything . :):)  Of course this isn't what is outside yet. This is from last Summer in town, at Jean's Plants.
 If I do get things for my containers, I will get photos. I love seeing pictures of flowers on everyone's blogs. The color, the choices, the containers themselves. Where people put their containers, such as , the porch, the steps, patios, walkways. It's interesting to me. Plus very inspiring. Wishing all of you a beautiful Saturday.  xo

Good Friday....

 This is the St. Johns church that was in the background of yesterday's photo.   The red house next door to it is the home of the priest. I love this old church. Very beautiful inside. Lightening struck the main tower  a few years ago and burned, just the tower, so thankful it was not worse.  The St. John's school is to the east of this church.  When I lived in town, I was only three blocks from here. So I could hear  the school bells and the church bells. On calm days, you could hear the children at recess.
 Wishing all of you a blessed Good Friday. xo

Getting Warmer...

Today is a beautiful Spring day. It is finally getting warmer. To be 65 this afternoon. Yes !! That is more like Spring to me. Trees are budding, some flowers are growing. This is a shot of the St. John's school and church in the back ground. I could always hear the children at recess, when I lived in town. I miss the sound of children laughing and shrieking , while they played. To hear the swings squeaky sounds also. Hope you are having a good Spring day.  xo

Snow & Flowers....

 This is the ground yesterday morning, you all know what this nasty stuff is called....snow !!

 Now this is what I want to see in my yard. Not that white stuff. I want beautiful colors. This is a photo from last year's flower sales , in town.
I almost bought some of these pansies and violas from Horton's last weekend. Oh boy am I glad I didn't. I think they are cold hardy, but yesterday, even I was not cold hardy. I felt cold all day.
Didn't get warm till Ted made a fire in the fireplace after dinner.
 Hope all of you are feeling good to start this new day.  Hope your snow is melting and the sun is shining.  The sun is out here and it looks to be a pretty day here.  xo

Drive Through Park...

Here's a couple pictures of our park, from yesterday. The grass is greening, but the trees have not leafed out yet. They have trimmed the trees, cut down trees that were dying. Also they have planted many new trees near the creek that flows through our park. I absolutely will get more pictures as the Spring and Summer happens. We got a dusting of snow last night.
  I got up last night to see the blood moon and saw snow instead.  So I went back to bed. The temperatures are below freezing, sure hope it warms up quick. Suppose to get to about 40 degrees today. Hope you are having a good day. xo

Green Things.....

 My lilac bushes is leafing out. That seemed to have happened fast. I had just checked it two days earlier. I hope a cold snap for today and tomorrow doesn't hurt it.
This is a bed of lilies growing. I can see I need to redo the trim bricks. Actually I have about three places that need attention. I don't think I will try working out in the yard today. Too windy and wet.
  Today is my classmate brunch, in town. So I am looking forward to being with the girls, we have not been together since December. I'll post about it anything fun happens. Hope your day is good, please pray for those in need today. xo
