Signs of Spring!

We are so happy to have Spring time officially here!  That means a little bit more sunshine, thrown in with some April showers and even hail.  This is the Pacific Northwest.  We get it all, on any given day.  My girls have plenty of boots and not enough sandals! 
I am not very good at keeping flowers alive, so I don't have any pictures of bulbs being planted. This is our front yard blossoming tree, I cant kill that! In the warmer season I am known for picking the biggest and most beautifully colored hanging baskets and then a month or so later they are wilting away.  I need help with my green thumb badly.  I've wanted to plant my own little vegetable and herb garden for years but have never gotten around to it.  Mario and I keep talking about it lately so maybe this year will be the year!  I'd really love to have fresh basil and cilantro in my backyard.  How amazing would it be for my girls to plant zucchini and beans!
The inside of the house is getting a little Spring decor.  Here are some pictures of the girls' Easter and Spring type books.  My mom gave the girls two sweet Peter Cottontail books a few years ago with flip up pages.  They absolutely love turning up the flaps, its like the first time, every time.  I probably need to invest in a few more to liven it up.  Then, there is my fireplace mantel that I love to decorate for every occasion.  I love this simple burlap banner I found at Joanns Fabrics.  I have a Easter egg one too but I thought it might be a tad to early for that one.  So obviously these daffodils are not from my garden, lol.  Yellow is perfect color for flowers, they bring cheer to any drab day!
I hope you all have a beautiful Friday and happy weekend ahead.  I'm so excited for Saturday because I'm getting together with some cousins and my sister in law to get fitted for our bridesmaid dresses. Thank you very much for taking the time to read my blog.  Happy Spring!

  4. UH yeah, that tree with all those pink blossoms is BEAUTIFUL!
    and don't worry, I don't have a green thumb at all, seriously. It's so sad because I'm totally with you about wanting to plant herbs and other yummy goodness. The most I've grown is a pomegranate tree...and I didn't even plant it ;P So that's saying alot [;
