Cottage Bouquets & A Very Special Visitor.....




Another very interesting weekend at the cottage...
Friday was bitterly cold, with the wind off the Lake...
It finally turned to a North wind, and we were able to enjoy a bit of late day sunshine... 

My bouquets this weekend, were built with a few Mauve Lilacs in bloom...several Tulips, and some false Solomons Seal...

They came together nicely for yet another weekend arrangement!!

Even captured a Lady Bug...did you see her??




 We enjoyed a lovely fire after dinner...and boy oh boy, is that furnace getting a workout this Spring!!

SOOOO glad we put that in last Fall!

I made a small arrangement for the kitchen shelf...

A few Lily of the Valley...

Perfect for that spot!

 

Saturday started out rather frosty...as the day progressed, it warmed up to about 14*c...still rather chilly for this time of year...we got a lot of yard work accomplished...and even had a nice visit from my daughter Lissa and SIL Jeff! we huddled together in the sunshine to keep warm!! hahaha!
 



 Sunday was still breezy, but a lot warmer...

We stayed 'til 4:30, and the car said it was 21*c...much better!! As we approached Burlington it was 30*c!!!
Strange how the weather changes, when you go around one of The Great Lakes!!

All in all..a very nice weekend...

And we had the sweetest little visitor!!

A cute Tea Cup Bunny was munching in the drive way all weekend!! Hope he is still there next weekend!!


Hope you all had a great weekend!

Happy Memorial Day to my American friends...

I have been a bad blogger...need to visit you all!!

Weekends at the cottage sure interfere with commenting!!

Forgive me??

Hahaha!



Enjoy your evening...And your fireworks!!

                                 Cheers!  :o)

  4. Imagine letting real life interfere with blogging. Oops, wait a minute I did that for a couple of weeks too. The bouquets look lovely, would they be related to Mrs Bucket? pronounced bouquet.

  6. It sure was cold on Friday, Linda! I was freezing, in a cashmere sweater and a heavy wool coat, plus scarf! Love your flowers, and I will miss the lilac and the lily of the valley when I go home; they are such romantic and fragrant blooms. The little bunny is absolutely adorable :)

  9. A good weekend at your cottage is an excused absence from blogging! Love the vases of flowers and a visit from the children is always wonderful!

    Yep...weather changes here and there and willy nilly all the time here, too! Spring, right?
