A Easter Surprise

I had an package arrive in the mail today.  It contained an Easter Surprise from a friend that has moved away from Ogden.  A gray felted bunny Easter basket an old fashion card comprised the surprise contents of the package.  Such a nice thought and fun gift from a friend.

The gray felt bunny is now holding a glass vast of lavender tulips from the grocery store, with the old fashion card featured nearby.

The best of Easter and Spring wishes to you, all!

Spring 2016

This weekend I was so excited to see apricot trees in bloom and to see my first butterflies of the season.  Violets, snow drops, daffodils, crocus and dandelions are in bloom.  I planted pansies for my doorstep.  A first peek at Spring 2016.


A small sunset painting,  I finished.

Snowdrop Blooms

The garden is filled with snowdrops.  The warm days have melted more snow, awaking these lovely white and green pendulum blooms.

Snow melt

With the lovely Spring temperatures, the snow is melting.  My mother was out raking the yard today. The winter was hard on the garden.  Early winter windstorms and heavy snow brought down trees and branches.  Spring cleaning will involve the removal of theses trees and branches.   We will need a number of warm spring days to melt the snow, and give us a chance for spring cleaning in the garden..

It's March

A taste of Spring, a few sunny warm days.  But it is March, so today brought rain, snow and just a peak of sunshine.
