Flower Show


My camera has been a bit busy lately! You have to look at my Spring Flower show post...just back a few posts! Wow-has this flower show taken on a different look! The gardeners do a fantastic job of maintaining the flowers. Note the change in color in the hydrangea....they are controlling that by how they treat the soil...per the volunteer at the conservatory! It is amazing!

Easter is coming...is Winter too?


While I am so looking forward to Spring really really being here, you must find the beauty and fun in the snow with just a week before a "late season" Easter! God just knows how to make that snow land on my fence! It just gives me happy thoughts and makes me smile! I hope you enjoy the attached photos!

Easter Preparations

The Easter Grass is planted! Years ago I remember seeing Martha Stewart plant Easter Grass for decor for the holiday. I have always wanted to do this and this year I DID IT! You may ask, "what is Easter Grass" and "How do you grow it?" It is actually called wheat grass and I am told it will grow in about any type of soil. It will take only 2-3 days for it to sprout! It should be looking good by Easter Sunday! I plan to tie a bow around the claypot and then use them for decor!

Spring Flower Show 2011


My love for Spring-time is unfolding as the days go by! It seems that life has been busy and I while I am doing things, going places, taking photos and MAKING MEMORIES!!!, I have been away from my blog for a bit! Here's a little catch-up to share with you! I have been to the Como Conservatory Spring Flower show 3 times already! I love it...and find it a great thing to do with any of my friends that desire to go! (Ok...it is me asking them! But they love it too!) I am going with one more friend next weekend to see the Easter Lillys added to the display! Or should I say to smell the Easter Lillys! If you have not ever been to the show....take it in! You will not regret spending the time! Enjoy my memories from this years show!
