It's All About The Flowers...♥️






Since returning home from Florida...

My 2 daughters have kept me supplied with beautiful Flowers...

From the PINKY Creamy Spray Roses...to the Soft Ruffly PASTEL Carns...

The PERFECT PINK of the Cyclamen...

The hint of PALE GREEN in the Creamy Hydrangea plant...

I love them all...and I love my 2 girls for always thinking of me...♥️

The house is always filled with flowers...wouldn't have it any other way....

And...

A few of my KALANCHOE are still blooming from last Summer!

Such a dependable...resilient plant...love these!

And...one of my AFRICAN VIOLETS surprised me with a few beautiful blooms...

If they are not happening outdoors...

There is nothing like an indoor garden to life your spirits...

My GERANIUMS I brought in last Fall, are tall and healthy...and...

Are anxious to get outside again!

Soon...hopefully...soon....*sigh*








Hope you all have a great day...

Still unseasonably cold here...at least the snow has melted...:o)

We are off for a drive to the cottage...drop off a few more boxes to the thrift shop...{Hi Tammy!}...I will make lunch at the cottage...crank up the furnace...at least spend a few hours there! I am sure there will be more growth out there...it is much further south than our home... hopefully a few DAFFODILS or FORSYTHIA branches, I can cut and bring home for some Spring cheer!!

       I have a Rack of Lamb thawing for dinner tonight...

               I think a glass {or two} of RED  wine will go nicely with that!

                   Have a great weekend...

                          Cheers!  :o)

                               linda ♥️

ps...let me know if you make that deliciously delightful Lemon Yogurt Blueberry Bread....yummy!!  ♥️

    I really cannot decide which ones I like best and I should not say so because the others might get jealous . . . :)

    1. Hi Eddie...
      Thanks so much! I do love when the pictures come out as beautiful as the subject!
      Cottage was very miserable weather...but we enjoyed our lunch and time there...
      Hopefully next weekend will be a sleepover...and we can tackle some more clean-up chores!
      The Lake is VERY high for some reason...right up the beach...and lots of stones on the lawn!

    2. Gosh . . . stones on the lawn. That is high! Hope you don't ever get flooded . . .

    3. Back in the 50's, the cottage was moved from the beach, back to its current location...a hurricane came right up thru Lake Erie, and took a lot away with it! The waves toss the stones up from the beach...quite a mess...we have a LOT of work to do, if and when the weather co-operates!

  12. You are a lucky mama! Love those gorgeous blooms. I put my geraniums out a couple of weeks ago. I cut them back slightly...was afraid to cut them back too much. They all have new leaves popping out everywhere. :)

    1. I am so jealous that you have your Geraniums outside already!
      aren't you glad you brought them inside? They live to see another blooming season...fabulous!

  14. Very lovely flowers! I'm happy that my African violets are all blooming, must be the southern exposure. Hope you had a nice drive to the cottage. It's taken a few days to catch up with routines since we came home, but eventually I'd like to try your great lemon blueberry bread recipe. Have a nice weekend and take care. :)

  15. Oh, those pink and cream blooms are soooo beautiful Linda. What lovely girls you have too, bringing you flowers. My African violet haven't flowered for months, but maybe they don't like Summer. I'll have a word to them.

  19. Your pictures of flowers are always so beautiful. It's so nice that your daughters bring you bouquets. It's never something I think to buy myself. It is very cold here today (although sunny at times). Have a nice time at the cottage. -Jenn
