Happy Easter!

I hope everyone had a blessed, happy Easter with family and friends!

For the first time in several years, we stayed home and worked on household chores ~ Mr. Sew Dear finished the electrical outlets and fixtures in his work shed. And I completed the dreaded task of turning over the Winter clothes to Summer, getting the Dressing Room reorganized. I wish there was enough closet room in the house proper without having to haul the seasonal clothing up and down from the attic, but that's in the future renovation plans. Once you finally own a house, the re-do list gets longer every year, I believe. By the end of this July, when hubby's project is complete, there may be changes brewing in our place of domicile. It depends on what his company has in store for him, and since that's not very far away, I find myself becoming anxious. We have put so much of ourselves into many projects in and around the house, and have become so attached to it. It will be hard to move, but change, as they say, is inevitable.

My sisters are planning a family "Scrap Bash" for next month in Myrtle Beach. It sounds like a blast, and I could use a break from the normal routine! Who doesn't love the beach?!!!

Til next time,

What's Blooming in South Carolina Now?

(Click on photos for an Enlarged View)

My parents had Candtuft in their garden, and I was so thrilled to see it pop up about a year after we moved into our house. To this day, 5 years later, I am discovering new volunteers that mysteriously appear each year!

Usually I can identify what they are by googling them ...

These Star of Bethlehem popped up in the grass last year and I dug them up and moved them to a proper bed!

Last spring I planted Forget Me Nots from seed and transplanted them into the garden. This weekend I was thrilled to see how beautifully they have blossomed this year!

And of course the dogwood are blooming ~ we have 2 large white ones, but my favorite is the pink one of course!

A couple of weeks ago I was at my parents' in the Atlanta suburbs and shot some wonderful photos of their gorgeous daffodils and narcissus!

Happy Gardening!
