First Blooms of Spring!

Welcome friends to my garden. This year we are a little late with the first blooms. We had such a long cold winter here in Texas and mother nature decided to nap a bit longer, but the wait was so worth it for the showing we now can enjoy. I took a little walk around my garden after many hours of work and many more yet to go, but the first blooms are always special and I wanted to share them with you. The above pic is my front door. Not exactly real hydrangeas, but I made this arrangement to greet and bring a little color to the entrance.

Lastly, the vintage window I designed last Spring, made it through the long winter left outside. I gave it some help with the faux hydrangeas in the flower box. The real hydrangea garden is located underneath the flower box.
Thank you for stopping by and taking a little walk with me for a look at the first blooms of Spring. As you might imagine I am spending many happy hours in the studio and creating away to bring many new items to my little boutique on etsy. Lots more to share next week when I complete the projects I am working on. Till then, enjoy the weekend and Happy Spring.
p.s. in one of the pics there is a little fly enjoying the nectar of a flower. I have it marked, although small. Can you find where it is?
Hugs, Celestina Marie

Hello Celeste,

Everything is just beautiful. Well, flowers do that, right? I can only imagen the sweet smell that will always greet you whenever you go to your garden (roses!) :-)

I remember the "window" you made. Yes, yes, I sure do. :-)


(I think the painted bunny you made on the previous post is just precious!)

I needed to see flowers after the day I have had. My oldest son ended up in the ER, they thought first it was his heart, but that was negative. He had a flat tire coming home last night which started the problem and his chemical asthma flaired up. I learn something new every day, but the strain of getting the tire changed put pressure on the muscles surrounding his lungs which put pressure on them. It is still greek so I need to do more research. I have him home and he ate a good supper which is very encouraging. We were in the 80's today, but the cold front came through and the temperature dropped. Your fly is in the second picture down from the flowers in the blue pot. Your Missouri Friend.

G'morn, Celeste ~How lovely your florals, ours aren't quite here yet but anxiously watching for that first rose bloom.

The reason I chose the lavender was because of your background on the blog, Celeste ... glad I did. I think I am going to take your suggestion for tomorrow & try one of the cozies out ... TY.

So enjoyed our time together, look forward to many more moments of enjoyment with you.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Hi Celestina Marie,

Love all the pretty signs of Spring around your home.
The hydrangea arrangement at the front door is lovely.
Also all the pretty roses and flowers around your garden must be so gorgeous and I can imagine the scent would be divine.

Your door is just gorgeous with that so beautiful flower arrangement.All your flowers are blooming so beautifully. My hydrangas are just starting.My lemon trees ,Almost died and i'm afraid one is going to.This as you know was the worst winter we had in twent yrs here in South miss.
I want to thank you for your most kind words.Yes I was disapointed ,but you can't do nothing about it.I'll try something later.It just cost so much to send one of my dolls and the return posted is horriable.
Congrats on your upcoming 37th...LOL.You really arn't far behind me...LOL.
I never did answer your email,how terriable of me.I'm still adjusting to his retirement.Thats a whole new story...LOL.I have no puter time.He is a puter hog,thats all I'm going to say.
Well dear you take care,don't get to hot working.Once again your flowers are drop dead gorgeous ,just like you are.
