~Spring Fling~

Hello Everyone,
I'm having my own Spring Fling @ My Cozy Corner. It's been busy here in the garden lately. I was in the garden most of last week. I try to work only about four hours a day.  Pulling yellow dandelion and planting annuals for our garden tour. 
The daffodils are just beautiful. I couldn't wait to set a bench tablescape. 
Tea Time on a picnic bench. Oh my! I'm so blessed.
The daffodils are so beautiful. I bought a bag of daffodils called  "The Works" from White Flower Farm. (not a sponsored post)  They are truly amazing and I have "The Works" to show for it. Check it out HERE. I planted the yellow pansies last month and the plants are filling out nicely. I found the darling vase for the pansies at Michaels on clearance.   
Blue and White pitcher and yellow flowers are a winner every time...
St. Francis is watching over the garden. 
Silly me! The little lamb is souvenir from our trip to Colonial Williamsburg VA. They have the most adorable lambs in their fields. Leicester Longwool lambs are the rare breed they raise. HERE
 My little lamb is smelling one of my daffodils. 
I love having a cup of tea under my Flowering Plum tree. The little red flowers are falling from the tree as I take these photos. 
This Johnson Brothers tea pot is one of my favorites. I found the tea pot, pitcher and a creamer at the thrift store. What a great find. ♥
I love the mix...
The Denim quilt was a gift to me from my son about 30 years ago. This is the best quilt to take anywhere. It is priceless at the sandy beach. The sand just shakes right off. The little pocket is to hold things and I thought a vintage hankie would be just perfect for today. 
My mother's hiking boots. I have fond memories of my mom wearing these boots when I was young.
Check out my February Journal HERE.
 What a difference a few weeks of warm weather does for a growing garden. 
What a wonderful sunny afternoon. 
Anyone ready for a Garden Tour? I've put a new flower on my hat.
