Well, the first day of Spring came (and went leaving more cold temps behind) and I finally got some decent plants in my pots and my entry all decked out for Easter!!
I picked up the luscious maiden hair ferns at Miracle Greenhouse in Savannah. And I totally said a little prayer before handing over my credit card that I wouldn’t kill them. I added a few petunias and am anxiously awaiting the sweet potato vines to make their debut in the nursery. I can’t even kill those.
Mother made the darling “Peter Burlap Tail” door hanger out of screens using the same method from her shamrocks.
I dug my metal bunnies out of the bowels of the attic and dressed them up with some crisp white bows. I purchased these years ago from Love Street in Smyrna and have forgotten to pull them out since we lived in our old house.
I also just had to share my Mt. Hood daffodils!! (Just don’t look too closely at the mess of pinecones, depleted pinestraw and struggling azaleas.) I threw them in the ground last fall and was SO incredibly excited to see their smiling faces pop up this week. As soon as the grass greens up we will freshen up the beds.
Happy Spring, y’all!!! This is one winter to which I am thrilled to bid farewell.
