Home is . . . party the last couple of weeks. Today's party is about flowers. At the moment these are the only blossoms in my yard, although I hope to change that once the danger of frost is gone. I do get to view this tree from one of my kitchen windows and I love the color I see. I wait every year for this vibrant pink to appear for a few weeks. My oldest son brought in several branches of crab apple flowers to brighten my table, but we discovered they are not meant for such a use. They have shed most of their blooms already.
My husband's grandparents lilac bushes are finally in bloom, so I am heading over to see them tomorrow and bring home lilac blossoms to fill my home. I am so excited.
Our yard is a blank canvas. I would love to know what your favorite flowers and shrubs are, please share them.
It has been a busy week, I learned how to mend fence thanks to my wonderful in-laws. And, I look forward to a few more days of work. I am very thankful for my stand mixer, I can't imagine stirring after pounding staples all day! Tomorrow I am going to post a coconut cake I have been dying to try.
