The First day of Spring was last Sunday, Easter is coming up this Sunday, and you can certainly tell around here. Flowers and bright colors are everywhere. I’ve discovered that there is Vinca minor ‘La Grave’ (a.k.a. Bowles Blue) planted along most of the house. It’s blooming beautifully right now.


We also have flowering bush, out by the drive which is blooming again. The weird weather we had this winter made this one bloom mid-winter this year, so I’m glad to see blooms on it again.

The yard has also been infected with tiny flowers this week.  I’m not sure what they are, but they’re all over the front yard, and very pretty.

I need to find a home for them still, but we also got some lovely Dianthus at the Farm Bureau meeting last week.

Though, the best thing I’ve seen in the yard this week is the strawberry bush. It doesn’t have fancy colors on it yet, but it’s hard to mistake the tiny green berries for anything other than future strawberries.


Of course spring, especially near Easter, is a great time for beautiful candy displays. We have a nice one on our dining room table. At least until we eat all the jellybeans.  My husband and I aren’t usually fans, but the Starburst ones are amazing. And Easter was also a great excuse to display the ribbon candy fish I got for Christmas.

What makes your house feel like spring?

    Clean curtains! I always wash the curtains in time for Easter, and hang them up wet (no ironing needed that way!). The fresh, clean smell of curtains drying in the sunshine says “spring” to me now that the only green growing thing I see in my apartment is a philodendron.

    Those tiny flowers are Spring Beauties. You are very lucky to have them. I doubt you will have any luck moving them. Just mow around them until they are done and celebrate having them in your yard.

      Thanks for the info! We also had some violets pop up throughout the yard this week.
