Monday's Musings

It's a new week, in fact, it's the beginning of the 16th week of 2017.  Can you believe that?  It's one of my favorite times of the year, spring.  We have been busy preparing our porches and patio for the spring and summer.

I'm not much on yard work, but I love potting plants for our back porch and patio.  We have Fox Tail Ferns, Asparagus Ferns and Kimberly Queen/Sword Ferns on the porch.

We potted some Bougainvillea, Mandevilla, and Calla Lillies out on the patio.  And, I've forgotten the names of a couple of other plants we potted.  Of course, they are small now, but just in a short time they will all be flourishing with a little watering and tender loving care. We got everything done just in time for Easter and our family fun.

Our landscape is now almost a year old and is looking so much better now that the plants are bigger.  The bottle brush bush (top left picture) is really doing well and is so pretty.  The pansies are still showing off and the rosemary (lower right hand picture) is literally going crazy and it smells so good.  The yard was definitely ready for hiding eggs for the girlies. 

These little girls had a fun Easter and have hunted more eggs than the law allows.  And, they had a big time dying eggs and were very proud of the end result.  There are so many cute and creative ways to dye and decorate eggs. 

Our local bakery made these cute bunny cakes for Easter and I ordered one to have as our dessert.  The girls loved it!  And, it tasted very good as well.

And, these little guys had a fun Easter weekend too.  They went to see the Oklahoma State Cowboys play their spring football game on Sat.  They even got to walk out on the field.  Big brother is holding on tightly to little brother. ~so sweet~

Our church had some of the most gorgeous floral arrangements I have ever seen for our Easter services.

We have a floral designer in our church that blesses us with breath taking arrangements quite often.  We are so thankful for her willingness to share her talent. These certainly added to the celebration of our Risen Savior.

I could not resist getting mine and Hubby's picture taken in front of the gorgeous arrangement.

We were met by these lovely arrangements when we went to eat at the club following church.

And, the Easter bunny was at the club and I couldn't resist the chance to have my picture taken with the cute fella.
 It was just about the perfect Easter weekend except for missing our Oklahoma family.

  1. Darling pictures, Lea. My favorite is of you and the Easter Bunny!

  2. Love seeing your patio and plants-you are blessed to be able to plant so many things so early-typically we don't plant until Mother's Day. This year though I bought three Creeping Phlox and left them in the container, so I could move them inside if we get snow(which I hope we don't). Love seeing your grands and the photo of you and your hubby is beautiful. We are blessed to have life abundantly because He first loved us.

  3. Well you are one gorgeous and the Easter Bunny, lol...just kidding, adorable pic but you and your Mr. Are just precious! Those floral arrangements at church are stunning and have me excited for flower planting.

  4. Oh my! Your patios and porches and plantings are stunning! Enjoyed looking at all of your pictures of your church and egg hunt :). Happy belated Easter -- He is risen!


So glad you stopped by and hope you enjoyed your visit. I love your comments and read each and every one of them and I always try to reply to them. Blessings to you this day!
