Enjoying The Spring Show
This was the kind of weekend that I find it almost impossible to stay inside for very long. The weather continues to be delightful and it seems that each day there is something new blooming.
Something new saying "hey, get out here and take a look at me, because before long I will be done putting on my show until next Spring."
This weekend I spent lots of time enjoying the Spring show. The dogwoods were in center stage.
The pansies are still performing well, but it won't be long until it will be time for their final curtain call.
New to the stage this season are these pots going up the steps on each side of the front porch. You may remember when I planted them here.
I pause at this point in the show to pay tribute to the pink tulip. Planted during a time of grief, it has become the star of the show as it teaches that life will go on and can still hold beauty.
In the background we have the up and coming stars of the show ~ the azaleas. And, after the show it's time for a refreshment. In this case a cup of tea in the garden. The adorable tea cup and tea pot were made by Donna from Mourning Dove Cottage.
~I hope you are enjoying the show in your area too.
