Millinery Eggs for Easter....

I try to mix up my Easter decorating each year,
some years like this I just do a little
and other years I go all out...
 
I always bring out my millinery Easter Eggs...
 
I made them years ago
and shared them my first year blogging,
but back then
I didn't know most of you...
 


they are Paper Mache Eggs
covered in silk,
with vintage millinery flowers,
tulle and ribbons...
 
frilly and girlie...
 

 
my Mount Tacoma Tulips
are blooming
and made a pretty pairing...
 






 
Wishing You
a wonderful Easter Weekend...

Lost in the Garden...

I have been lost
in the garden....
 
completely absorbed by the beauty of Spring....
 
 
Blue Skies
and
Pink Trees...
 
my utopia...
 

 
the flower beds
are filling out so quickly...
 
it is a wonder really,
how quickly it all happens...
 


like tissue paper pom poms...
 
the perfect blooms
of the Kwanzan Cherry...
 
the last tree to bloom here
and the best in show...
 


 
Pink Geraniums...
 


 
now fill
my front porch planter...
 
simple and cheery....
 

 
Woody Hyacinth...
 
I believe fairies
must dance beneath the forest of bells
in the moonlight...
 
 
Violets...
 

intoxicating...
 

 
Money Plants blooming...
 

 
Forget-Me-Not...
 
 



 
everyone has an
extra spring in their step...
 

 
or swish in their swim...
 



 
My newest back porch planter
and Paul's Himalayan Musk Roses
leaning in from the left...
 
I planted Paul last year...
he is as healthy as can be,
and already covered with tiny buds...
 
Roses soon...
ahhhh...

Easter Sweets...

Since there are no little ones here,
the Easter Bunny won't be stopping by with any baskets...
 
still...
 

 
Easter Candy is just too pretty,
to not indulge...
 


 
so this year,
I filled my apothecary jars
and cloches
with some favorite sweets...
 

 
perfect pastels...


 
irresistible pink grass...
 


 
white rabbits...

 
a little Chocolate...
 



 
wishing you something sweet...
