A Sea of Tears.......


It's time to Flaunt Your Flowers over at  Tootsie Time for Fertilizer Friday!
Be sure to stop over and see everyone's Blooms :)

My Iris' are in bloom. I bought a box of rhizomes at a church sale last year. I didn't know what colors they would turn out to be...let's just say I'm pleased!
Such a variety.











These were from my Mom's garden...



My Cecil Brunner is also in full bloom.
These climbers don't have as strong a fragrance as Mom's bush type.
Kinda disappointing. But they look pretty.


The garden is loving this weather we are having.
A few sunny days of 70's then a few rainy days of 60's.
I have to say I am too ;)

But the Baby Tears the MOST!
It seems to be engulfing everything in it's path! LOL

Froggie in a sea of Baby Tears..

Fairy knee deep....

this little Angel is almost down for the count!
There are two others in there some where...

As soon as the hotter weather hits,
the Baby Tears will retreat
to only the shaded areas of the garden. :(

Last weekend I hit a yard sale and picked up a couple of plants.

A really pretty pink Columbine and another one I didn't recognize.
It had such pretty blue flowers I had to pick it up.
I've discovered it closes it's blooms at night.

There was a bit of communication problem
so I wasn't able to ask the seller it's name.

But I think Carla from A Mellow Life  has correctly ID'd
it as Blue Eyed Grass. Thanks Carla!   

 I know this post has been pretty long and
probably has way to many pictures in it
but
I have one last photo for you....

my blooming chair :)
Honeysuckle engulfs the base as
Petunia and Verbenna
take over the seat.
Love the scent of Honeysuckle. 
 


Ok, now get out in your gardens and enjoy Springtime!

Frogs, Eyeglasses and Treasure

I'm linking to these wonderful ladies partys..
be sure to stop in and visit other participants!

Vintage Alphabet Party at Etsy Cottage Style
Mosaic Monday at Little Red House
Today's Thrifty Treasures at Southern Hospitality
  
2nd Time Around Tuesday at A Picture is Worth 1,000 Words
  
Nifty Thrifty Tuesday at Coastal Charm
Vintage Thingie Thursday at Coloradolady

For the month of April,
ECS Vintage Alphabet Party if for the letters E and F.
For E I chose Eyeglasses.

I have several pairs that were from my Grandmother
and possibly my Grandfather, not sure.


The little round ones seem so delicate
They look like the glasses my Grandfather 

is wearing in a picture I have of him, my Grandmother,
my Uncles and my Mom.

The bottom center glasses are the style
remember my Grandmother wearing
while I was growing up.

For the letter F I picked Frogs.

I think the reason I'm so intrigued with them
 is because when I was little
I just couldn't figure them out.
They just didn't look like frogs to me!

These were my Mother's.

I know she had others
just not sure where they went.



These I've picked up here and there.
I especially love the pink one,
I'm partial to the glass kind.

XOXOXOXOXO

I had a busy weekend this past weekend
 so was only able to hit one yard sale,
and it was just an OK one.
I did manage to find something ;)

Fell in love with the color of this plate. ($1)
It's by Oneida China.
Heavy and good size.
The cute little Silverplate Shakers ($1) 
will make there way to my store.


They even had a few plants.
Nice and healthy. ($2 each)
I grabbed this pretty pink Columbine
and this other plant, don't know the name of it...
the people were Hispanic and
was all I could do to understand the price :(
It has pretty blue daisy like flowers with thin strap like leaves.
The flowers were open yesterday but closed overnight.

Ah and I can't forget this cute sign,
a little pricey at $3, but it was soo cute
and I knew just where to put it ;)

Wishing everyone a beautiful Springtime Week!!
