Spring is truly here when the Trilliums bloom! They are just now opening so they are tender and fresh. I adore them. They bloom in our shady forest.
The Creeping Myrtle has spread all over the forest floor and look pretty surrounding the Trilliums.
Do you have Trilliums where you live?
This is my current Daffodil in my brass bulb vase.
Do you see the photo-bomber? :-)
When we were looking in the Hoosier cabinet for my Easter tablecloth we found this doily that I actually crocheted many years ago.. I'd been looking for this!
I like how the center looks like feathers. I am now thinking I need to make another doily.
Our son picked up a ton of pellets for us on Saturday and Kristi and the boys helped unload them into our garage. Then they took the boys home for the remainder of "shelter in place" situation.
It was a lovely afternoon and I enjoyed watching the birds at the feeder and the sound of the waterfall into the pond.
I got this neat sheep planter last year, inspired by one that my blog friend Meredith was given as a gift. I've decided that when we can finally get out in public again that I will buy some succulents to plant in it.
I asked our little family to pose for a photo in case we don't see them for a long time. :-(
Our grandson Michael was out in the area so stopped to visit with his friend. They stayed 12 feet away from us while we chatted to comply with social distancing and only stayed for less than a half hour.
I thought I'd take photos as the white Lilac buds out to show you how it's progressing. :-)
I have put out my Easter decorations, but I forgot to put out my Beatrix Potter bunnies.. I'll add those later today. :-) Or maybe I'll put them on our TV cabinet. Hmm.
I oiled and cleaned up the wooden egg holder and put my crocheted eggs on there for fun. I have my two antique glass bunny candy holders there. One with jelly beans and the other came with it's original candy and paper stopper on the bottom!
These were made by J.H Millstein in Jeannette PA in the 1940s and sold filled with candy at Easter.
This little figurine joined the family last year I think.
This is my Bethany Lowe set of "Easter Parade" figurines. I think they are adorable!
This is my newest Easter decoration, Dayle got it for me at an antique store for my Christmas present!
Our calm Saturday evening was shattered by a rollover car accident right onto our property! The police were there, also the fire truck and ambulance. Dayle went out to take these photos and found that the driver had fled the scene before the emergency responders arrived.
Several years ago a small truck wrecked and rolled over directly across from our driveway and the driver had also fled the scene. When I went out to see what was going on a police officer said he'd stolen the truck, and ran from the scene. I freaked out as I was home alone and the door was unlocked. He could have been in my house for all I knew. I went right back in and checked and locked myself inside. I found out later he ran right across our pasture, over the hill and stole another car!
I posted on Corbett Area on Facebook that the driver had fled and to lock your doors. I found out later it was a woman and she left the scene as she was scared. Oh my. Life is never boring, is it?
We're making do and carrying on.. Dayle made Spam fried rice for us the other night. Just cook your rice, stir fry ham or even some bacon chopped up, add veggies and soy sauce and Voila! Dinner! How about we all share the homemade meals we're cooking while "sheltering in place"?
Tonight we're grilling steak and making baked potatoes and asparagus. I'm going to make some chore lists of things I'd like us to get done around here while we're housebound. And crochet. And read. I'm reading "The Lavender Garden" by Lucinda Riley. It's rather good but the stupidity of the heroine is making me rather cross. Have you read it? Stay safe and stay home!! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
