Spring is still Open for Business

The stores that I have always enjoyed strolling thru this time of year are all closed,   but I am so grateful that Spring is still open for business! 

I think the quiet solitude of  spending so much time at home has made this one of my favorite springs......

I've enjoyed working in the yard and making changes to some of the decor in my "out door rooms"    

Today H and I are going to enjoy a leisurely lunch on the front porch.....

I have the table set for two......

I created a beautiful bouquet using stems I cut from the our lilac bush in the back yard and  tucked in a few stems from a nearby yellow plant.     The front porch smells wonderful....


The Bradford pear tree's were so pretty this year when they were covered with white blossoms.....

All of the blossoms have fell off and now they are putting on their green leaves......

I bought a new sign for the front porch several weeks ago from At Home......H hung it today.....

Til next time.....Stay Safe.....


  1. I love the little counter with pink stools. Your foliage is far ahead of ours and no lilacs for awhile in S.E. Washington State. Think of what we are saving not to go shopping!

  2. Good morning, Penny,
    What a beautiful black and white buffet or lunch bar you have set. The flowers and ferns are so beautiful. It is such a peaceful setting. I hope you and Mr H had a lovely lunch together. It is nice to have a sweet husband and best friend that you can enjoy things together with.
    God Bless You Both Always, but especially this Easter Season with so much turmoil in the world.
    May be with you both always.
