For you dear friends....

I scanned these precious babies for you ~
be sure to look at the bottom of my blog for advice on how to save
the very largest size, and they are big!
Their faces are just precious....

We've been sprucing up a bit to get ready for Clara's birthday party and
just to prettify the place too!
I bought a teeny hydrangea bush
and planted it right under our bedroom windows ~

And I re-potted my new ferns in their wire baskets ~
I just love how they look on this old front porch!
Now to just water them every other day so they will flourish.

As much as I love the beautiful blooms,
I had to trim the front bushes and the wisteria,
it was encroaching on them and will take over if you let it!

The azaleas are blooming, this poor specimen is raggedy but so happy Spring is here.

I also bought a hanging basket that was filled with snapdragons ~
Surely they're not the kind that get really tall since they were sold in a hanging pot.
I had a beautiful wire basket that I lined with moss and re-planted them inside.
A perfect centerpiece for my little iron table on the porch!

It's beginning to look like Spring around this old farmhouse!

I hope Spring has arrived in your neck of the woods
and that you have a wonderful Friday sweet friends,
hugs and love,

Wow honey spring has arrived here at my neck of the woods but not near as beautiful as you are enjoying.
All of your flowers are just gorgeous.
Glad I came by tonight and was able to see all of these. Just Beautiful

Dear Dawn, your ferns are so gorgeous on your front porch! And so are your other plants!! Oh, I want to see some in my yard! It snowed here! And that is rare! I am SO ready for Spring!

Thank you for your adorable photos of the babes. So sweet.

Enjoy your weather and Clara's birthday party!

I'm having serious wisteria envy. I bought a plant last year and it did not bloom this year... maybe next. Your pictures are beautiful. What a wonderful front porch you have.

Your porch looks so inviting! Love all the pretty blooms. It has been too wet and rainy here to do any spring planting, maybe next week.

I wanted to thank you again for posting on iPiccy. I have been playing with the tools like crazy and love all the neat effects, so easy too. I left you a link back in my post yesterday for sharing this wonderful new tool.

I hope you have great weekend!

I'm hoping to get a couple of ferns as beautiful as these, Dawn! I think it might be a bit too early for us though, even though we are having a heat wave in March. There are two hooks already out in front of our door {from the previous owner} and I just thought "ferns" right away.

Well sweetie, our spring hasn't sprung quite a fast as yours but I have a few greens peekin' up outta the ground so I have hope!
