Final Day of Winter


Here in Central New York, we welcome spring and hope the snow melts soon.



Where the heck is Spring? 


My friend Colleen sent me the link to this photo of African Violets on pretty Jadite and Depression Glass stands. I think it's time for a visit to Lyndon Lyon Greenhouse to pick out some miniature African Violets and fill some tea cups. In looking at the website, I see they offer leaves, so I'll be able to start my own plants. 



Anticipation...


Blooms

Blooms

Blooms!




These pictures are from a few years ago. Each year I plant about 100 bulbs and hope that the voles and squirrels don't dig them up. 



Thank you for your visit.

  1. I am hoping that spring is here to stay and that all of this snow melts soon!! Your table setting a few posts back looks delightful! And the little tea lights coordinate so well. I noticed your table runner…I just made one last night…I will post it in a few days. I might make them to sell on eBay. I also love that little covered serving bowl! I bought red enamel soup bowls in Fla to go with the CC dishes…maybe I will set the table with them tomorrow as we are having bro and sis in law for dinner. Enjoy your day! And keep dreaming of spring!

  3. I love your Spring flower-filled post, my friend! The tulips in your yard look so beautiful. I love the mini African violets on the tiered cake stands in the teacups. I must try that idea! Thanks for the smiles this morning :). xo

  4. I sure do love African violets -- what a great photo!! We've spied a few robins but no blooms here on the Kansas prairie yet -- SOON I hope :)

    Blessings!

  5. Bring on the flowers! So pretty!
    My neighbor lives on Park Ave in NYC. After the tulips bloom in front of his building, they dig them up and give them away. He gave me 50 bulbs, I wonder how many will bloom, and then survive the critters!

  6. Oh, I cannot wait to see some spring growth! The snow is quickly melting though so there is hope. That picture of the cardinal made me smile :)

  8. Debbie, I am ready too! Today was pretty and sunny so I was out in the garden doing a few things, but the weather was still cold. My bulbs are just starting to come up and the pansies are pretty. They make me smile every time I drive in but I have to look past the brown ugly lawn to smile. I think my lawn is always the slowest getting green!

  9. Good morning,Debbie! First of all, that header photo of yours is OUTSTANDING! Oh what glory, that color of the water just makes me sing for spring! And that little cardinal...hahahahaha.....our cardinals also are chirping, "WHERE IS SPRING?"

    Thank you so much for coming over and leaving a comment. I hope that both of us can enjoy the feel and smell, the sounds and tastes of spring very soon. It has been too long indeed.

  10. Those sweet little violets remind me of my grandmother. She always had them growing on her window sill. They are so pretty in the little tea cups. The first flowers of spring are always so welcome.

  13. I was somewhere recently where they had a lot of jadeite. I love it. Your new header is stunningly gorgeous! The bird is a crack up. I can't wait for blooms here. Joni
