IT'S A PARTY! COME JOIN US!

For some new Saturday Fun join in the party going on over at  BARGAIN HUNTING WITH LAURIE looks like it will be a very good time of sharing. The new party is called A Few of My Favorite Things Saturday. 


I am visiting my Mom in Houston, Texas and we have been having some glorious weather!  Sunshine, warm in the 70's and spring just busting out all over!  I took a few photos in my Mom's yard and these are some of my favorites to share with you today.

Lovely spring photos of blossoms! My son lived in Florida for a couple of years and forever talks about how good Blue Bell ice cream is!

I see all those flowers and the colors and I think of a canvas of paints or a rainbow of colors. Isn't God amazing?

Oh, how beautiful. Here in MO you have to get right on top of plants to see the buds. What beautiful sights you're enjoying. I'll bet you're having a great time with your mom. Oh, oh, oh. I'm going to my first of the year outdoor flea market tomorrow morning. I'm so excited!

Oh I am so jealous!! I feel like going out and sitting at night with my tulips and wrapping them in a heating pad and try to talk them into popping up! LOL

It's gonna be awhile yet here for blooms. Your mom's are gorgeous!

Gorgeous pics of Spring in Houston! I have some family there and my 18 year old son is heading out on Sunday from our home in Eastern Washington and driving, pulling his bass boat to Texas, with a week long stop in Houston. I have Texas on my mind!

Enjoy your visit with your mom. We are having a giveaway today if you care to take a peek!

Happy Spring, Linda! It's snowing here, but thankfully the snow isn't sticking to the ground. Maybe it will feel more Springy in a few days! Keep on having fun in Houston, girl!

Sue said...

sorry the virtual cupcake tour made you hungry.....LOL....I didn't think it would have that effect on people....I am thinking of making some orange poppy seed shortbread....I can atleast store it in a tin and take days to eat it....better then downing a dozen cupcakes in a day!!

Linda Louise! (I make Louise EVERYBODY'S middle name - - - it just GOES with every other name, including Louise)

Anyway - - - did you take all these spring pictures THIS SPRING???? If so - - - your spring is far more sprung than is ours!!!! I have just begun noticing that the buds are beginning to swell on the trees - - - we have NO hint of green yet around here.

Mary Ellen said...

Things are just beginning to thaw out here! I can't wait till things start blooming! Love iris and yours are so pretty!
