We've had rain off and on all week, so I haven't been out in the yard much, but I wanted to get some pictures of my tulip clump before they were done blooming.
It appears I got two different kinds, neither of which look much like the photo on the box, but I'm not complaining.
There's another random one coming in my pot on the porch.
Not sure why he's all alone, or where I would have put the other ones.
I planted these last fall along with the tulips.
The box says Early Snow Glories, Pink Giant, with tiny text identifying them as Chionodoxa forbesii.
They're so stinkin' cute.
Back inside, I grabbed my camera to capture sleepy Baby pics.
She just couldn't go anymore that day, apparently.
Speaking of sleeping kids, The Cat's new favorite spot is the same chair.
A neighborhood gardening friend dropped in the other night with ladybugs for the kids to release.
They were up and movin' the next morning.
This is the time of year when flowers start showing up in every room of the house.
And a few touches of Easter here and there.
The kids made a bunny banner on a rainy day afternoon.
The mantle got a couple sprigs of white lilacs that I swiped from the neighbor's yard.
I took some pics of the sedum and succulents that I have in the yard for someone in the neighborhood wanting to expand their collection.
And last, I have been obsessing over this wallpaper.
I love it with all my heart and have been fantasizing about putting it above the board and batten in our main bathroom.
But, it's expensive.
And, my sister suggested we may want to finish our current projects, (kitchen, master bath, etc.), before starting anymore.
Anyway, I ran into Target last weekend for some Easter stuff, and had to do the full walk through.
I've always had a thing for shower curtains, in a, I-want-them-all sorta way.
I pull them all out of the display and drool and dream.
But I'm good and never buy any.
Well, they had a new one this time that I couldn't walk away from.
It's sorta my version of heaven.
Grey, white, flowers and birds.
Yes and yes, please.
It's reminiscent of the wallpaper.
It has the same feel to me.
But, it was less than $20 and took 3 minutes to hang.
My kinda makeover.
It prompted a floor to ceiling scrub, I touched up all the woodwork with trim paint, AND I finally took down the ugly glass shelf that I've hated forever and put up a wood one that I had in my stash.
Free, free, and free.
Add some branches from my Wygelia in the wall vase, and we've got a shiny new bathroom.
Off to brew up some carne asada soft tacos for dinner.
Have a fantastic Easter weekend!
