Just Flowers

Just flowers today. I am playing house. I am going to be moving furniture. You know just how many times when you have a wedding shower, people want to look under the couch? NOT! Just me being crazy about having lots of people here.

I thought  I would share some spring pictures from last year. We have a bit of cold this week. Yay! and maybe three days of rain. Which I doubt. But I will go with it.

Crab apples are so pretty. I never can do them justice.

 I love the pink.

I think blooming trees are the prettiest flower arrangements.

I hope you have a lovely Monday.


  Raining, by Amelia Josephine Burr, 1878-1968
      appeared in The Bellman Book of Verse, 1919
Raining, raining,
All night long;
Sometimes loud, sometimes soft,
Just like a song.

There'll be rivers in the gutters
And lakes along the street.
It will make our lazy kitty
Wash his little dirty feet.

The roses will wear diamonds
Like kings and queens at court;
But the pansies all get muddy
Because they are so short.

I'll sail my boat to-morrow
In wonderful new places,
But first I'll take my watering-pot
And wash the pansies' faces.


  1. THAT is a cute poem and crab apple blossoms are glorious!

  2. Are those blooming now?! If so, I'm going to wish I'd hitched a ride with my parents! They're on their way to CA! I hope you get some much needed rain!

  3. I like crab apple blooms too- and dogwood- both are so pretty.

  4. So pretty to see pretty flowers and know that before long we will be seeing some....I love that pillow in your header....

  5. The flowers are beautiful! Praying with you that you will get the rain!

  6. You picture my favorite flower...the last one. I wish they were every where here. I have one plant that I keep babying and replanting the seeds but no young ones yet.

  7. gorgeous crab apple blossoms! And a fun poem but we've had more rain than the ground knows what to do with!
    Love the stitchery for the month too!

  8. I love your February header.
    Have fun rearranging the furniture.
    Your tree blossoms are awesome.
    I do hope that you get lots of rain.

    Have a great week.

  15. I can hardly wait for the Peach Orchard to begin blooming...
