Hello Spring.

Spring is officially here! And, of course that means I got out our Spring decorations… all four of them. Okay, we might have six or seven if you count the few that I got out weeks ago, but it’s not many.

Two weeks ago I bought the welcome sign above and this Happy Easter sign. They were on sale. Who doesn’t love a good sale?

A few years ago, my mom got me this “Rockin Rabbit” for Easter. He is a lot of fun because he sings a song about Easter goodies to the beat of “Blue Suede Shoes.”

I also got out a flower arrangement I put together years ago as well as our Easter baskets so I could start planning our Easter candy and treats! I gave up candy for Lent, so I’m excited to treat myself to candy when Lent is over. There are two big bags of my favorite fruit and spice jelly beans sitting on our counter waiting for Easter.

The tulip basket is for Zoey. The Easter Bunny brings her toys and treats every year. She might be spoiled. Just a little bit. 🙂

Aside from getting out our decorations, as a I drove around today, I made sure to enjoy how beautiful the trees look in bloom. The tree in our front yard does not flower, but there are several trees around our area that do. Last Spring, I took pictures of the trees that line the road near our neighborhood. The photos now make up this photo collage frame that hangs in our entryway:

And before we went for a walk tonight, I went out to see what else is blooming in our flower beds and I spotted our lilies coming up already!

How did you spend the first day of Spring? We went for a walk this evening and enjoyed dinner outside. I love Spring!

One thought on “Hello Spring.

  1. I sat outside on the first day of spring, as a storm was rolling through. It got quite a bit colder, so I went back inside and took a warm bath (I was going to do that anyway, but I thought the cold was a good excuse 🙂 ). I love all your decorations! We tend to keep St. Patrick’s Day stuff up until Easter rolls around. I’m trying to limit new decor to one new piece each year, but it’s so hard with all the great sales!
