It's been busy in my northwoods this week. And I'm still not 100% from my diverticulitis issue - but definitely much better. Thank you so much for your kind words and thoughts!! They mean so much to me. ;)
Along with busy appointments and errands I've been continuing to Spring clean in my home. I spent 4 hours cleaning out my closet yesterday! It had been a LONG time since I'd fully done that -it's a good sized walk in closet by the way. Not fun, but a great job done! But I've full on got Spring in my mind so I thought I'd share a quick 5 today and look back on some pretty Spring flowers and things from my home or yard. I think it's fun to get some inspiration for the new Spring coming ahead, don't you?
Lilacs are one of my absolute favorites! And they just say Spring to me. It'll be a while yet before they bloom. My in-laws have a giant lilac "tree" - bigger than a shrub or bush for sure! These blooms were from their trees - one has white flowers and the other lavender. Does anything smell sweeter than lilacs in the Spring?
Of course Easter time is in the Spring. We definitely focus on the spiritual aspects of Easter, but this time of year also brings other traditions. Coloring Easter eggs. I always have some tulips in my house somewhere. And we do different desserts every year - except fruit pizza. We always have some kind of fun and bright fruit pizza (or above multiple pizza cookies) as one of our desserts. Mmmmmm...
When Spring is truly here in my northwoods - all of the leaves grow in all over our backyard and we become our own little island on the bay again. We don't see neighbors across the way and things are green and bright and beautiful! And Ruby loves it as the mud and muck around here stops and we can get out for more walks. ;)
It always makes me think of my Spring birthday Girl! Annie's birthday comes around the time the lilacs are blooming. ;)
