I've been a busy bee! I'm lovin the warm weather!

The weather is FINALLY warming up, so it was time to give my yard some love!

Look what's popping up!

My tulips have decided to come out and play for the spring!  I love tulips!

My grass is getting green, my Kwanzan Cherry tree is blooming!


I added red mulch and the contrast with the green grass just makes my yard pop!


I bought my ferns today and cleaned off my porch!  Boy, my porch was dirty!


My front porch!  We spend a lot of time out here!



I love swinging on our swing and the wind chime sounds so nice!


I bought some plants for my planters, and now they need to grow!



I hope the weather is warming up for you as well!  Have a Happy Easter!

I LOVE your home - what a beauty it is! I am just dying to get my annuals started, but it's still too cold here :( I always have to wait until the end of April - so I'm waiting - impatiently!

Lori,
We are having lots of rain, with intermittent sun. =)
But, we are also enjoying all the lovely Sping blooms you are.
Tulips are about to bloom, trees blossoming, grass growing, (and needing mowing!).

Thanks for such a pretty post, and for coming by. My delight to do your Thursday Meme, as long as I can. ( we are making some changes at my store so very busy, and, my wrist and arm are killing me from being on this comp. so much!). =(

Will try to get by next week and say hi to all your hostesses.

Blessings
Barbara Jean

I adore that porch and the entire house and yard - really beautiful!

We did a lot of planting over the past weekend in preparation for Easter and for guests, and I'm really enjoying looking at the flowers and planning more things to plant. I think I might be a little bit obsessed now! :-)

Found you @ The Girl Creative!

Isn't this time of year the BEST?? I love getting my hands dirty in the garden. Not quite warm enough for planting outside in Maine, but I've got lots of seedlings in every sunny spot available. Your house is lovely....and I WANT that swing. And, your porch. :-)
