*Let's Take A Peek Around The Garden*

Hello Everyone,
The Pineapple has long been known as the symbol of hospitality. 
 I bought my pineapple banner last week at Tuesday Morning on clearance. Another thrifty buy.
I've always loved to eat pineapple.  The girls and I looking forward to our trip to Hawaii in May where we will enjoy fresh pineapple morning, noon and night. 
 I will sharing more about our trip later, but now let's look at what's happening outdoors at My Cozy Corner.

'Pink Perfection'
 is blooming on my large camellia tree in the front yard

Just a few are blooming in the back of the tree.  


Pink Perfection

'Dutchman's Pipevine
The host for iridescent blue and black pipevine swallowtail butterflies. 


'Lenten Rose' Hellebore

'Yellow Daffodil'

The weather is amazing this year.  Usually it's rainy and cold during February.  Tomorrow the weatherman predicts the weather to be in the high 70's and  I plan to clean the flower beds and prune the rest of the rose bushes. And this morning Sweetheart and I did a walk thru the garden today to get a plan for some action on the landscaping around the pergola area.
We've received word that the family will be at My Cozy Corner for Easter.  It's the best time of the year to entertain in our yard.  Everything is in bloom and it's not so blooming hot.  (That's my joke for today) LOL!
The kids are also planning to spend a few days at the lake this summer so sweetheart and I will be busy playing during the month of July.
I would love to say Thank You to everyone who enjoyed my post about the good old days.
What it was like then and what it's like to today.  The post just became  
#1 all time favorite post.

  1. Your beautiful pink Camellias are to die for! I've never heard of Dutchman's Pipeline, but what an interesting looking vine!

      The Dutchman's Pipevine is a native plant to California. This is the only plant where the pipevine swallowtail butterfly will lay its eggs. Just amazing. Thank you for visiting My Cozy Corner

  2. Oh, I said the same thing as soon as saw your pink Camellias, they are TDF! I love the pineapply banner, I didn't know it means "hospitality". Wow, I couldn't wait too if I had plans to go to Hawaii. Thank you for coming and leaving me such lovely and kind comments on my daughter's homw...she's delighted that you ladies with such great taste likes her house. Thank you and hugs.

  6. Hi Betty,
    I enjoyed this little trip to your garden. And I especially liked your camellias. The picture of the single camellia flower is breathtaking. I love it!

  7. OMG! I love your Camelias! I used to have some when we lived elsewhere but have none now. Yours are gorgeous! Lookis like you are enjoying the great weather too.
    I always have Easter,it's "my holiday" to host. My garden is a Spring garden too so it's a great time to show it off.

  8. Love the pink camelias. I've always thought Lenten Roses are so cool...but they won't grow here.
