WELCOME THE MONTH OF MAY



"Sweet May hath come to love us, flowers, trees, their blossoms don; and through the blue heavens above us the very clouds move on."    ~Heinrich Heine~

"The May-pole is up, now give me the cup; I'll drink to the garlands around it; but first unto those whose hands did compose the glory of flowers that crown'd it."   ~Robert Heirich~

Hope everyone has a wonderful month of May.    Madeline

LATE BLOOMING AZALEAS APPLE BLOSSOMS AND MORE


I love the color of this azalea .


These are planted at the end of my property.


This is the red azalea that is behind the pink one in the above photo.



My apple tree has a few blooms on it.


These come up every year. 


These come up every year also.
It is warming up nicely so I have been getting my flower pots and planters ready so I can soon go buy plants to put in them.  I am not much of a gardener no green thumb but I keep on trying.

WELCOME THE MONTH OF APRIL



This I saw on n April day: warm rain split from a sun-lined cloud, a sky-flung wave of gold at evening, and a cock pheasant treading a dusty path shy and proud.

And this I found in an April field: a new white calf in the sun at noon, a flash of blue in a cool moss bank, and tips of tulips promising flowers to a blue-winged loon.
    ~James Hearst~

" April rain is here again; hear it pitter, pitter, patter, on the leaves and on the trees, see it spitter, spitter, spatter.  Rain, oh rain, don't go away we need you for flowers in May; drip, drip, drop and so not stop, send a little rain our way."
            ~Nina B. Hartford~

" April, April laugh they girlish laughter; then, the moment after,  weep thy girlish tears."
                ~Sir William Watson~

Have a great month of April.

EASTER DECORATIONS

Most of my decorations were bought at yard sales or the dollar tree.  Some were hand craft by my husband and I painted them.


































My outside decorations were crafts that my husband cut out and I painted.  The other items were bought or found at yard sales.
