It's spring around our house.
The birds are singing and the sun has finally come out. The temps are rising.
Spring on my kitchen table. A nest
and eggs. See the birds in the background.

Yellow tulips
in an ironstone jug. I love using jugs instead of vases.
My white geranium
has made it through the winter and is now flowering. Isn't it beautiful.
I managed to save 15 geraniums over winter. I pull them from the garden, shake off the dirt, put them in a box, then put them in the darkest part of the basement. Then at this time of the year I take them back out, cut them down to the new growth and plant them into containers. I always find that amazing that they will go dormant and then start to grow without soil or water. .

until next time,


  1. The spring decorations at your house are lovely :-) Thanks for sharing them!

  2. I'm terrible about saving plants over winter, so your hint about geraniums are amazing to me! Thanks for a touch of spring :-)

  3. O I love spring. I am impressed you saved so many geraniums! I used to but have no place for them! Thanks for coming by!

  4. I always look wonderingly at geraniums in here, in So. California, they grow like weeds! Just a few weeks ago at work, where we have several planters-full of them, they were using big pruners to chop them back! lol
    Congrats on having so many to start with this Spring! The yellow tulips are gorgeous too!
