A Bit of Spring...


I've been under the weather this week with a cold and now oh-so-fun laryngitis.  So I headed to the garden store today for a much needed little pick-me-up!  Some little touches of spring color are just what I needed!  Primroses just say "spring"...two shades of pink went home with me...







And these little daffodils are so sweet...


I even love the look of the shoots coming out of the ground!


And I spied this charming lady at the shop...a big, heavy formed concrete bust (from a hollow mold, so at least I can move her) with a great classical distressed appearance!
 




I think she's a beauty...and she'll probably find a place in my gardens this year...

Until next time...hope you have a wonderful weekend...and I've got a date with a soft blanket and some magazines!

  13. Your lady looks like she's at least a century old! She'll look beautiful in a garden. Oh, I feel for you. There's nothing so frustrating as having no voice...for me anyway. :@

  16. Nothing says HAPPY like flowers...these are SO sweet and they should make you forget you don't have a 'voice'.

    Oh, that bust of the woman is outstanding. Makes me want to find a good cemetery to photograph.

    Glad you are feeling better and hope your weekend is great. It's going to be 70 degrees here at 8,000' so I'm going out to enjoy it!

  23. I am glad you got some treats, Linda. I hope you are feeling better. Those primroses are incredible and I love the bust. She will look fabulous in your garden. I know you will show us where you put her. Isn't this weather something? I keep waiting for the snow!
    I am doing ok. Up and down. Hanging in. Overwhelmed by all the legal matters. This, too, shall pass.
    Big hugs to you,
    Suz

  24. Linda,
    So sorry that you are under the weather. But nothing like primroses to perk you up! They are so pretty. I tried to grow them in my front yard one year but I think the ivy choked them out. sigh.

    all the best,

    ♥charlotte
