Spring Flowers for Easter Weekend!

I have some wonderful pictures of my friend, CG's, pretty Florida wildflower garden.  I took pictures last year when she first started this project and my has it grown!  Take a peek here if you want to see last year's entry about it.

But first I wanted to show you some beautiful flowers I received from yet another good friend (who never reads this blog!) and my son and his fiance (love to say that!).  They sit in a crate I found at a flea market this week that another lovely friend, Country Mouse, took me to as a Bday treat.  I was able to wrangle it from the guy by purchasing more blue Ball jars that were all caked in dirt (upcoming post) - and when I reached for my wallet that sneaky Country Mouse bought the lot as a gift to me!  I'm hoping Sammy likes the crate enough to incorporate it into her wedding reception decor. Ah, but do you see my new Boston?  He was sitting on my porch on my birthday.  My friend and fellow blogger SueBee found him at the thrift and gave him to me.  I about fell off my porch - he's perfect! I don't know who was more excited, me or Suebee. I have such good friends, I am truly lucky.

So now on to CG's garden.  Mainly pictures, few words, because they aren't necessary, such beauty speaks for itself.

She even has a vegetable garden too!

I couldn't resist snapping a picture of these baby cherry tomatoes. So cute!

May all my friends and family here in Real Life and in Blogland have a beautiful Easter weekend.
