~spring blooms~

Hello everyone!

well if I was gloating in my last post about the 
fabulous weather~ no need to worry
about that continuing! ;)


we are back to rain mixed with peeks of sun...
back to 60ish.....bah humbug!

well at least we've had a few sun breaks!
if I can see it on occasion....I am much happier! :)

I finally got my new camera & thought I'd 
show you a few pics I took in between
showers & hail!

I planted the white bleeding hearts this spring...
love them!


I planted the pink last spring and they
have gotten HUGE!

don't you just love spring?
I soooooo love seeing everything come back
to life after a long winter's nap!


this crabapple is so bright & magnificent....
such pretty blossoms to enjoy....

and these little forget-me-nots
are just everywhere ~ willy nilly!
they self seed in abundance!


I bought a few annuals to spruce up a few
pots & baskets ~

I really loved the pink & white dragonsnaps...
they're really sweet & kind of on the petite side.... 


I also picked up these daisies
I love all the varying shades of pink...


isn't God's work amazing??
what would we do without all the beautiful flowers,
trees and shrubs??
not to mention the cheerful songs of the birds?
I'm so grateful for these little bits of heaven on earth!

I planted this candy tuft last year & it is growing
quite nicely as well....


and I planted these pink flowers which I have no
clue what they are but after not doing so hot last
year ~ they are coming back in a big way!

are they called sea foam?  don't think so ~
but I swear the name had something to do with
the sea...um....even though they are pink...?


that's it for garden shots....

thought I'd show you a new slipcover in

it's not exactly "new" but it's kind of new
because it got some modifications &
 a brand new fabric!


I am loving this yummy natural linen....
it's got lots of texture & nubby yumminess....
I think you'll love it too....


we added long flowing ties for a soft
romantic feel.....
perfect for tying a pretty bow....


one more close up of the fabric....


you like?
you can find it here

and yes it seems, I'm addicted to fabric.....
and flowers....
and anything that blooms...
:)

Have a wonderful weekend!!

I still want to see the front gardens we chatted about last year?????? I hope you are doing well & love that slipcover you shared here! I need something for my new chair for the guest suite (on my pinterest board "Gueest Suite" if you want to peek at it to let me know if you think it will fit)....
PS - Fishtail Cottage's Garden party starts up next Thursday May 3rd ~ hope to see you link up! xoxo, tracie

What a nice visit to your garden. Springtime is such a wonderful gift of God! I will have to look for bleeding hearts this year to add to my garden. Our neighbor had a glorious one that climbed up a trellis on his home. I am blessed to have instead of a fence between us crepe myrtle and cottage roses and I don't even need to cut them back each year. I just get to enjoy and watch him. lol
Love those slipcovers!

Crab apple and forget me not flowers so lovely. I have never seen them before. Don't think we really have them in Australia. Thanks for sharing.
