SPRING IS HERE

Today was the most excellent day to get out, sunny beyond belief, blue skies, a light breeze and a nice warm temp to hit the skin. It put me in the mood to go to the local nursery to purchase two more orchids to join my one lonely one. It was time for the spring apothecaries..... time to put the Easter eggs away.
 
The pink magnolia tree out in the courtyard greets me every day.......
 
 
 
I decided to do all live apothecary jars, along with some nest and birds..... lets cross fingers I have a green thumb*****
 
 
 
Puts me in the mood for some Ella singing Spring is Here. She is just flawless in this song.

  1. I just love what you do in these apothecary jars all the time. These remind me a little hot houses! Good luck with them! I have no green thumb. Perfect song for spring too....

    Sublime, the first lady of song ushers in the sylvan season...

  11. Having fresh blooms in the home is a wonderful luxury (and makes such a difference) ... it's even better if the blooms come from your own garden!

    That flowering magnolia tree is stunning!!

    1. Yeahhhh!!! I am absolutely feeling it!! Nice and fresh pictures. One mistake people make with orchids is they water them to much. Give them lots of light, and water only once every week and a half with a like three teaspoons of water. They should never be saturated.

  12. You pictures are magnificent and the apothecary's looks beautiful. Our neighborhood was full of forsythia blooms this weekend while walking around. Perfect weekend to hear some beautiful Ella.
