Day 5 of Spring Colour Week 2011 - White
Last day of Spring colour week! I had so much fun and I also got over my shyness of walking around with my camera and just snapping pictures. I think I'm turning into my mother, she was always snapping pictures I remember telling her to quit but she was trigger happy...haha! that was even before we had digital!!

Have a great weekend!

Day 4 of Spring Colour Week - Lavender

I hardly notice lavender, and having boys  {until miss L came along} it really was out of my color spectrum. So I only have a few pictures of this was difficult for me! and fun at the same time, when I spotted it I was excited!!
Below is the side entrance to the market of the Stonehorse Restaurant. It's really yummy located at Utica Square for those of you that recognize it. It also smelled wonderful...light sent not overpowering. You could smell the wisteria from the end of the street.


Beautiful creeping flox from my front yard that thankfully comes back every year {with absolutely no care on my part} and keeping my fingers crossed that it will start to multiply. It forms a beautiful mound of color when it gets full.

A beautiful wall quilt from the OKC Winter Quilt Show that I had attended this year. I don't recall the designer of the quilt {don't think I wrote any of them down and I didn't even take pictures of the labels, but I can tell you it wasn't made by me.} There was a whole series and the colors were bright and beautiful. I can't stop saying beautiful...haha!


Hope everyone is enjoying all the colors!

monday green

I'm playing catch-up today, in a good way! I was reading resurrection fern's blog {as always her pictures are beautiful and inspiring, please check them out!} and she had a link to poppytalk's Spring Colours Week 2011.
It's a whole week of colors.
Monday - green
Tuesday - yellow
Wednesday - pink
Thursday - lavender (maybe a challenge)
Friday - white

Any excuse to use my new camera {my honey of a husband got me...hehe!}. I'm playing catch up on Monday since I am now posting those pictures. For green Monday I decided to post on some of my returning plants.
My pomegranate bush, non-fruit bearing, has tiny little leaves full of reds and greens. Only wish it would actually give fruit I love pomegranates, they stain your clothes but taste great with a bit of salt and lemon juice. There is also a recipe...somewhere in my dad's head that involves grain alcohol, pecans and pomegranates and a few days in the dark...the mixture not me...haha! to make a cocktail drink. I may be missing somethings so don't try it at home...
Also, a surprise for me the Lilly of the valley is getting ready to bloom. This weekend I started to pull all the dead stuff away when the weather was gorgeous and didn't get very far because right before I was weeding and pulling grass from the vegetable garden which I did finish. The smell of Lilly of the valley always reminds me of Florida because of a scented lotion I used on a trip there. Funny how scents bring back memories. Maybe they will bloom in time for Friday white...hehe!
