Happy March

Happy March Everyone~~
Just 19 days till springtime and how welcome it will be. Now granted, we had a very mild winter here in the Lone Star State, but spring and it's gorgeous colors are still longed for as I prepare to spend time in the garden once again.

I was going back through my pics for this time last year, and sure enough, the same flowers are returning in all their splendor. So, I wanted to share a few of those pics again this season as we approach a new time with warmer days. As my garden wakes up from it's winter nap, I hope these bright colors make you happy and inspire you for spring. I only have a few new blooms but wanted to share them anyway.





And getting ready for St. Patrick's Day, this plant will be huge in no time at all.

Sweet little plate set I created for spring and now lives in Italy with a wonderful customer.


I hope you have a wonderful first day of March and new season soon.
Hugs, Celestina Marie

Hi Celestina Marie, We were lucky last night, but some people weren't so fortunate. The storm came through fast and furious. The rain was so hard that I couldn't see the next door neighbors house that is just across my driveway. I love the spring flowers especially the pansies. Your plate was so pretty and I know its new owner will love it. Take care. Your Missouri Friend.

Happy March to you, Celeste. Thanks for sharing your lovely flowers. I especially like the rose bush.
The landscape has been brown here all winter but last night we did get snow so it was all white today.

G'morn sweet Celeste ~ Where did you find the Irish Clover. Does it have the black dot in the center of the clover? I want the true Irish clover & remember when G'ma Maggie brought it back fro Ireland.

Your flowers are exquisite. I am so itchin' ... mild winter put me into the mood quickly, so I know how you feel ...

There is a wee parcel coming your way shortly.

Hope all is going well your way.
Have a beautiful day.
TTFN ~
Hugs & love,
Marydon
