A Very Flowery Weekend.....












It was certainly a flowery weekend around here...
Got my front planter done...pansies,tulips,daffodils,
pussy willows,and a few Easter
eggs...for good measure!

The Easter table was dressed with
Pansies and assorted eggs and chicks!!

The Yellow Crocus I bought is blooming lovely....♥️

The Flower Lady brought me huge
bunches of Lavender tulips...
Love the way they spread themselves out!!

My new Violet is loving it beside the Hot Fuschia Kalanchoe...

The Peach Begonia is looking very pretty...

And...one of my Geraniums from outside is putting out Flower buds!!! I couldn't be happier....well...I could...but this is awesome!!

                                               ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

From the looks of your blogs....you all had a very nice weekend and Easter...

Nothing like family time, eh?  Reminds me of the good old days...♥️

I have a few photos...I will share later...hoping my Son will send me a few...

We tried for a family photo...but the day went so fast...and then Miss V had to get home to bed...


                                       ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Crazy weather today....rainy...then sunny...then dark clouds...and of course the hideous winds!

Yesterday was nearly 20*c here....very warm...

The plumber is at the cottage today...fingers crossed!!!

                                         ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

        Hope you are all having a great day...

             On the menu tonight....

                 Turkey Pot Pie !!!  surprise...surprise!!   Salad on the side...

   
                         Enjoy the rest of your day...

                             Cheers!  :o)

  3. We both chose pansies for the dinner table. :) I love those crocuses. Wow! They are gorgeous. Your house looks like a beautiful garden, Linda. I planted a few more pansies today in pots just to have them here and there. Love, love, love them. It's raining all day today and I spent most of it putting away Easter things. It's nice to un-clutter the rooms and bring in some flowers now. Your dinner sounds great. Mine will be left-overs. Hugs

  8. Gotta love tulips!
    It's getting dark and looking like rain again here.
    We had a brief interlude of sunshine, but it lasted only a few minutes.
    Had an unexpected visitor this afternoon in the form of a snapping turtle.
    I let her do her thing and snapped a few photos.

  9. It looks so pretty around your house. I love the planter you did up. Beautiful! Colour is so nice isn't it? Sounds like you had a lovely weekend too. It's coolish here. Cloudy and breezy and cool. Rain coming for 2 days...not good. I hate to wish time away but April hasn't been the nicest month so I'm really hoping May will show a lot of improvement! lol

    The blooms are getting closer in the garden ... buds coming on the daffodils and the tulips have got much taller with the rain.
