Farewell to March

Every time I stepped outside in the month of March there was something new to discover.  This is a small sampling of the beauty found in my own backyard.  I'm so glad it's so pretty out there as inside has been another matter entirely.  
The townhouse my in-laws owned has been on the market for a few months.  Shortly before Easter it was sold and it has been a moving marathon since then.  Furniture has been moved in, out, up and down.  As often happens, a trickle down effect has necessitated major clean outs of linen closets, bedroom closets, attics and drawers.  There is still a garage to be dealt with.  I guess that will happen in April.
When Easter arrived, my dining room was filled with bedroom furniture and the table was loaded with stuff, stuff and more stuff.
Needless to say I had no interest in bringing out more stuff to decorate the house for Easter.  Our Easter dinner was in a restaurant this year.  I did, however, manage to make my famous carrot cake which was enjoyed in the kitchen.
The moving, sorting and purging is nearing completion.
It has been a lot of work and has given me a lot of food for thought.
But, in the end, it feels so good to be lightened up and organized.
Now I can go outside and play.


  1. It sounds like you have been working very hard, Kim. It's a good thing you are such an excellent organizer.

  2. What a lot of work! I fully appreciate every hour of it. Seeing light at the end of tunnel is something I do not yet see with my circumstances so I heartily commend you! What a beautiful collage of the flowers in your yard.

  3. Such beautiful blooms---I love them all. Thanks for sharing.

  4. March sure was pretty right outside your door. Before you go outside to play, can you come over here and doing some sorting, purging, and organizing? Honestly, I don't want to clean, I just want to crochet and be crafty. But there's so much unnecessary stuff around here. I really need to do something about it but keep distracting myself with yarn. :)

  5. Your Farewell to March collage is very lovely.

    I do hope all the unnecessary clutter in your house gets dealt with and calm returns. I know that I at least don't function well in disorder.

  6. What a beautiful collage of spring from around your yard.
    Sounds like you've been very bush with that sale.

  7. Oh my goodness, those blossoms are beautiful! Not a speck of color here in the Northwoods of Wisconsin except for the red of the red wing blackbirds and the orange of the robin breast. Probably another month before my daffodils bloom. But we have NO SNOW and that is wonderful. I so enjoyed looking at your beautiful flowers!

  8. You have such a beautiful variety of Spring flowers where you live. I sure need to keep working on getting rid of things. I took a donation yesterday...but I need to do so much more! We all seem to be more motivated in the Spring! Hugs!

  9. It's good to know when enough is enough. Going out for Easter dinner was a great idea. I hope the sorting and de-cluttering is almost over. Gorgeous blossoms out your way.

  10. What beautiful blooms in your own yard! Lucky you to have them so early. It sounds like you've had a busy month of March but all good when it comes to cleaning and sorting out things. A happy April to you.

  11. Wow what beautiful flowers. I love the pink dogwoods. All I have blooming in my yard right now is the Azaleas, Camilla bush and Dogwood trees. I have some Gladiolas that will be blooming soon. Enjoyed visiting here.
