Yellow....

Yellow,
isn't a color I am drawn to
too easily...


give me the
peacefulness of quiet white,
the magic of purple,
or well, the pink of roses...
any day


but,
in the early spring...

when the big yellow orb in the sky
is playing cat and mouse behind the clouds,
I crave yellow...


the only yellow flowers
in my garden
are these tete daffodils

they trumpet in the spring...


a fat yellow stripe
on a teacup
oozes spring cheer...




the only yellow orb around here today
 is floating in my tea :-)


a cup of sunshine...


Today I am sharing tea at...

The Girls' First Birthday...

Today was the girls first birthday!
Where does the time go?


I made them a pair of party hats....
cause they are my little princesses :-)


Daisy my girly girl
hammed for the camera....


but Iris,
looked sick...

I don't think my little tom boy
enjoyed her hat too much...


in fact...
she tried to ruin Daisy's fun,
by chewing her hat off...

not knocking off her own...



n the end,
the excitement was too much,
so they just slept :-)


off with the hats...
and on with the party :-)

Today I am joining

Thanks for stopping by today...

Popping up....

Well it is about time I popped up!
Time has been getting away from me lately,
and I miss my blog...

We have been enjoying a few spring like days
I have been doing lots of garden clean up...

I thought maybe you would enjoy a mini garden stroll?
 I'll show you whats popping up...


I found these perfect Pansies
 tucked into the backside of a pot,
beside the fence...

in their protected nook,
they road out the winter well...


the Rockcress
is just beginning to bloom
and spill over the rockery...


the first round of early Crocus is fading....


but a new later round is coming to
take over...


over the winter
we removed a couple large trees,
so I have been busy redoing the beds...

these clumps of Crocus
were dug up before the work began
and are today's job.

dividing and replanting...


I will end our mini garden stroll
with the happy face of a Pansy...
smiling at you :-)

and

Thanks for joining me today....
