Spring Musings

Will you join me for a stroll on a sunny day in February? I planted these tender pansies last Fall, and now as the winter sun warms our Texas soil, their blossoms brighten my days.

Happy little dianthus return year after year with magenta blossoms.  I think I am going to buy a dress this color!  Wouldn't that be so pretty??





Vintage tin hearts beckon to be used, I am baking this weekend-wait till you see the treat that I will be serving at our Valentine dinner party!






Plenty of sunshine warms my breakfast nook, this wonderful spot is perfect for decorating Valentine cakes!




Love notes received...from a secret admirer...






























Thinking of Spring, love and baking, and wishing you a great weekend!


Linking up with   LITTLE RED HOUSE

  2. Oh yes, Jemma, a dress in that color blue would be most lovely. Your blooms are beautiful, too, especially since a blizzard is supposedly headed our way. If we get buried under snow, I know where I'll find sweet flowers blooming! Susan

  4. Your beautiful blooms brightened my day Jemma. Every year I plant Pansies in the Fall for gorgeous Spring bloom. The dear munch them down to nothing during the Winter. The first year I thought, "that was a waste of money'. But lo and behold they came back and bloomed gorgeous. Learned since to just be patient. The deer finally go back up into the mountains and the Pansies never fail to delight. I love Dianthus too!

  5. I'm laughing. At first I only saw the mosiac. After I commented I saw the rest. Just had to come back and tell you how much I love your breakfast nook!
