The calender may not say it,
but Spring has arrived because I've
spotted my first live, blooming daffodil!
I borrowed this "holiday" from some former
neighbors and still good friends.
(Debby and Russell, you know I'm talking about you!)
They have a long standing tradition of
celebrating on the day anyone in their family
spots the first daffodil,
by doing something special as a family.
It might be something as simple as baking cupcakes,
but they make it a celebration!
My adaptation of their holiday is that on the day
I spot my first daffodil,
winter is over and I can bring out my packed away
spring decorating items!
We actally got two blooms to start the season!
After packing away the Christmas holidays,
I went to a very simple dining table for winter.
This is my favorite flower and I've had this
silk arrangements long enough that it's
starting to look a little faded.
However, it will have to make do until
there are enough blooming daffodils to
make an arrangement.
I've also added a white woven table runner
to brighten up the room a bit.
and rotate them seasonally.
Time for this little guy to make
an appearance with a couple of
ceramic Easter eggs.
two friendly bunnies
hold up their end.
Now my dining table matches my mood!
a little touch Spring decorating too
with some wooden eggs.
The violets are still blooming and
they cannot be improved upon a bit!
sweet little touches of Spring.
my current knitting project,
(which I was able to work on outside!!!)
even has the look of Spring!
This week I'm linking with parties at
