Loved seeing everyone's lovely Easter weekend, decorations, and flowers! We now have FLOWERS too!
Yes, it's true! Not a lot of sun but enough warmer weather for the flowers to have grown and popped open. Oh, boy do I have lots of pictures. I will show you "some" so I won't bore you too much.

Here's a peek of things around my house and yard.

Daffodils, both large and mini.

Look I just figured out how to put words in the pictures. One of the options using picasa web photo. Wow,  a surprise to me that I did it and found the option. Who knew?!?

I found various plants on their way to becoming flowers later.

Oh I love this photo caption option.

Want to do see what we did on Easter!??  I hope so.

You may be wondering why we did a 1000 piece puzzle on Easter weekend.....well, our weather was not very good, in fact we had 2 inches of SNOW. So we made the best of it and had a cozy time inside. My husband said he felt like a prisoner in this weather but he snapped out of it fairly quickly.

Look at what else we did.

We ate lots and lots of candy, along with working on a candy puzzle. We were definitely on a sugar high.

Look at what Amy brought us for Easter. So sweet of her, but she always is!

Two beautiful vases that she arranged for us. Tulips, daffodils, hyacinths, and the orange flowers, can't remember their name. Anyone know?

So nice to see my stone owl, back from the depths of snow. Looking good after the brutal winter. Do you know what he is doing?

Mr. Owl is holding up this!

The fence! It's on its last leg and I put him there last year and all is still well. I have my fingers crossed until we get around to investing in a new fence.

Well, I have lots more to share but I think I will wait until next time. Thank you for visiting. I so appreciate your time and interest in reading my blog. Don't be shy to leave a comment or become a follower, I would love  that if you care to.

    If you had snow on Easter Sunday, then you deserved to eat all that chocolate, we didn't have snow mind you and I still ate that amount of chocolate!! ;)

  7. Hi Robin, ooh, thanks for sharing the words on the photos thing, I always wanted to know how to do this myself but always thought it seemed really complicated!! I can't believe you had snow!
