Happy Earth Day!

Earth Day coincides with Good Friday this year and I was fortunate enough to have the day off work. I ran a couple errands, one of which was hauling my 17 lbs. of crushed aluminum cans at the local recycling center. They bump the price a little in their customers' favor in honor of Earth Day, and being that it's just my husband and I, we collect cans all year for it.

Upon my return home, I happened to gaze out my upstairs window and spotted some of these lovely lavender blooms on one of my perennial geraniums. With all of the rain we've had this spring, my gardens are looking so lush and full, especially given how early it still is.

Happy Earth Day!

Spring has sprung!

Well, I think it's here! Spring! After what seemed like an endless winter, I actually got out and mowed the grass today. Though I'm not entirely thrilled about that chore, it was nice to get out in the sunshine in the green grass and smell the fresh blooming viburnum. Its tiny white flowers are just beginning to open and they are so fragrant. It's a heavenly scent. Yum!

This little tuft of daffodils popped up out of nowhere this year. Light buttery color and it seems to be one of the double ones. I couldn't have picked a prettier plant. I guess I have the birds, chipmunks or squirrels to thank for that random planting.

This is the crabapple tree just starting to bloom. So bright and pretty!

I did add a pretty new necklace to my shop today as well, called Peony. Appropriate for springtime, I think. There were Peony earrings already in my shop, so I figured it would be nice to offer a matching necklace. Either would make a perfect Mother's Day gift!

Whew! That was fast!

Wow, I just listed these earrings tonight and I happened to check my activity feed and there they were in this lovely, springy treasury! It really has a nice feel, and I thank WeekendVintage for including me! Please stop by and check out all of the yellow and grey items if you have a chance!
