Spring Fling

Spring has officially sprung!
I hope you are enjoying spring-like weather in your neck of the woods! Today was a beautiful day here so I celebrated by flinging off our dark, heavy comforter and exchanged it for something a little lighter...a beautiful cream colored quilt my mom made! She does custom quilts and her work is just breathtaking!




And since I love crochet too, these pretty beribboned pillow shams were right up my alley...



After making my bed, I took a walk out in the sunshine to see what the garden was up to...



































(baby elephant ears peeking out from a long winter's nap)

(the first delicious smelling rosebud of the season)


(the guard-en cat~keeping a watchful eye out for intruders and keeping mommy company)

(the fig tree is in bloom~I can't wait for another bumper crop!)

(the newest member of our plant family~a pretty zinnia waiting to be potted up and BLOOM!)
I managed to plant some
bulbs~dutch iris, holleyhock and the lightest, laciest, airiest
{are those words?} daffodils~
some assorted flower seeds and nasturtiums. I am crossing my fingers that they will GROW!
Please share how you are welcoming spring!

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Your quilt is beautiful!!! Love the pillow also. And I'm jealous that you already have a rose bud. Our gardens are just beginning to come alive.
