They say it is spring in Indiana, but it was 20 degrees this morning. We have been having some very nice weather the last 3 weeks though, so I certainly am not complaining because it is Spring in my house.
Last weekend Jon cut off some stems of my Forsythia bush and I put them in some water and forced bloomed them. I now have the prettiest bouquet on my kitchen table. I have enjoyed my spring flowers so much and it certainly lifts my spirits on a cold morning. The flowers have lasted all week too. Tomorrow I am cutting off more stems for Mom and for myself for another week of enjoyment. Jon is trimming the apple trees tomorrow, so I am going to see if I can get Apple Blossoms to bloom. Does anyone know if this works?
I love pretty placemats and napkins. Jon got these for me for Christmas.
(of course I had a friend tell him I wanted them)
Aren't they beautiful? I wish my photography was as beautiful as my flowers.
This is my new wall paper border. We have a big old farm house and it looks perfect in my kitchen. Our new counter top, sink and stove have to be installed yet, but I already love my new kitchen.
