In Bloom

Lately there have been lots of blog postings featuring every ones beautiful spring bouquets...
So I decided to jump on the bouquet bandwagon.
There is nothing I love more than having fresh cut flowers inside my home. 
 Especially when they come straight from my front and backyard.  
My hubby, Mr. Greenthumb, loves to work on the yard. 
 All his hard work always pays off in the Spring time.
These English white roses take over my front porch once they are in full bloom.

We planted 2 snowball hydrangea bushes in our backyard last year.
You might not be able to tell how mini they are in the photo.
Perfect size for my little milk glass vase.

How lucky am I to be the recipient of Blanca's incredible floral designs.  In addition to the one she made as the centerpiece for my fundraiser on Sunday, she made an extra one for me to enjoy.  If you would like to have one of your own, Blanca is hosting a home show this Saturday, at her home, from 10 am-3 pm at 522 N. Eastside Ave, Santa Ana.  She will have lots of arrangements similar to this one for sale.  The PERFECT Mother's Day gift.

Just a peek at my first two hydrangea blooms...soon the bush will be full of my favorite flower and I will fill my home with their beautiful clippings.

I always look for an excuse to adorn my displays at the fleas with fresh cuts...

And while we are on the topic of Spring...look at the little treasure I received on Sunday from Kate's  (Salvage Dior) husband, Robert.  He recently found 2 birds nest and gave one to Kate and one to ME!!! 
He didn't know I already have a small collection of nest
and I am so honored to add this one to my collection.  
Thank you for thinking of me!!!  You are so TWEET.
 No bird or little baby birds were left homeless due to my bird collection.  
All nest were found long after the birds flew the coop.

Happy Spring Days, May Day and Mothers Day to all of you.

I will be at Rosebowl this Sunday - yes, on Mother's Day.  Space N-15, in the Orange section.
