The Beauty Of Easter

About two weeks ago early evening, I heard hammering, sawing and then vacuum noises coming from my basement.
At the time I was chatting with my good friend, Laurie. I remember making a comment to Laurie about the noises and the smell of saw dust coming from down below me in the "man cave" as Laurie refers to the basement....

Later that evening my husband emerged from below carrying this beautiful handmade planter...

My first thoughts were to paint and prim it up a bit, then after giving it more though I have decided to leave it as it is and let the outside elements have their way with it..!

I filled the planter today with some flowering plants I picked up on Friday at a local green house. I was also lucky to find a liner to fit inside. My husband with his handy craftsmanship had to trim the sides a bit for a perfect fit...

I have the planter stationed close to the outside windows of my French Doors, which are located in my Kitchen that lead to and from my deck. I love the added touch the flowers and planter bring to the view looking out through the glass doors from the kitchen.

Don't ya just love beautiful flowers..!!!

The Tradition Lives On...

Today I received the anticipated call my order for Homemade Marshmellow Easter Eggs were ready for Pick Up..!!

Regennas's Easter Eggs have been a Family Tradition since my Mother was little girl..

Notice there is an empty space...!!??

The Regennas Family started the family business over 150 years ago, working from an old wooden garage in Lititz, PA. The business has now moved to my area, very close to my home...Yeah for ME!!

I am not a big lover of the Clear Toy Candy, but I do love me some Dark Chocolate Marshmellow Eggs..!!

Have A Happy Easter

A Mother's Love

There is truly no greater Love than
A Mother's Love...

This Mother is sitting on her nest of babies on one of the most windy and blustery days thus far this year here in PA..!!

I happened to glance out my Picture Window in the Middle room of my home and found Mother sitting so still and quiet...

You can see how her fur is being blown around from the wicket wind....

We usually have at least one nest every spring in the front yard, it makes for hazard mowing, but we so enjoy seeing the little ones after they are born leaving the nest for short periods, running around as they are exploring their new world and afraid of everything and all things in their path....!!

As my son is getting ready to turn 21 this month, its a wonderful reminder of
A Mother's Love

A New Beginning Unfolds

The Harsh Month of March makes you wonder if those
Spring Flowers will bloom, come April....??!!

It always amazes me how the turn of the month from
March to April
brings new birth to the soil..!

Spring truly is one of the most magnificent times of the year!

April Showers Do Bring Spring Flowers...
