Spring has sprung!!

 Yes...Spring is full swing in my neck of the woods...daffodils are popping up all over!
 I like these...unusual...
 Question: A daffodil is a narcissus...but are all narcissus daffodils? These look like daffodils in some ways.... 
 Tiny and cute...these only bloom for a while in Spring...
 A blossom on the peach tree we planted last Spring...much darker pink than on our other peach tree...


 English daisies...can't have enough of them!
 I love orange...these are wonderful!
 A new geranium I put in a pot... 
 Hostas are starting to pop up! Love these lime green ones!
 The bamboo is starting to bloom...yet it still has plenty of winter berries for the birds!
 I love Coral Bells too...they are filling out nicely...I need more of these this year!
 Don made a few more bird houses...I love the rustic look of these...he added a hinged back door so we can clean them out every year...smart man!
 The paint is peeling off this guy...he's really old...but I love him!
 Speaking of paint...I had a can of turquoise spray paint and I started spraying a few things...these were very rusty and yucky...sorry...forgot the before pictures....
 We got this for a couple dollars at the flea market...it will be a great side table under the apple tree next to a rusty chair...that will stay rusty...need to put on a couple more coats of paint...
 Meet Matilda...that's Don's name for her...he shortened her and we are going to use her over some pepper plants...I think she'll be great holding up a bush or two...
 This bunny was pink when I got it...an ugly pink too...painted him white...then changed my mind...I think I like this color better...he's finished and sitting in the window now!
Been busy making doll carriers...here's a stack I finished today!

I was on Spring break last week from school...went to a small quilt show and lunch with my sister, Debbie. We had fun and found lots to buy even though it was a small show! I gardened most of the week...it felt great out in the sun day after day! Now we are supposed to get more rain...starting tomorrow...it has cooled off...its pretty dreary out now...I hope we get the rain...we need it!! I am working on my final for Desktop Publisher Level 1...I think I will be able to start Level 2 on Monday...my final is a 16 page booklet on everything I learned in Printshop, Publisher and Adobe Photoshop so far...I like this class a lot...keyboarding...not so much! I'm slow...I think my speed will never get past 30 wpm! I am working on more doll carriers today...I hope to add a few to my Etsy shop soon!

Until next time...enjoy your day!!!

We have daffodils and primrose here, too, but you are WAY ahead of us on the rest. I've always wondered where jonquils fit in. Way to go on the school stuff! You sure keep busy!
