It has finally started to warm up a bit and flowers are blooming here in West Michigan. Since this is the first spring in my new home, I was so excited to see what would pop up this year! I actually had a couple of surprise tulips that I forgot to photograph. One of them was red and the other one was yellow. They were so pretty and so I am thinking about planting a few more tulip bulbs this fall! I was so relieved to see all five plants that my dad put in last summer came back. I’ve never had a green thumb so I’m so proud of keeping his plants alive and well! This beauty was especially lovely and full of blooms a couple of weeks ago. I have forgotten what it is called. Does anyone know the name?
My pear trees also were in full bloom and looking so beautiful! I can’t wait to see if my hydrangeas flower this year and I have a few other sprouts starting up… I can’t tell if they are weeds or flowers yet, so I’ll have to keep you posted! Have you had any surprise flowers popping up this year?
Today I thought I would share an older Easter craft that has been a staple of mine for a few years now. If you remember, last Fall I shared my autumn wreath which makes an appearance in my home at Thanksgiving each year. Here is a similar Easter edition.
I just used a plain straw wreath from the craft store. I found this beautiful yarn with variegated green colors that I think are perfect for spring. Then I picked up two silk flowers from the craft store. They attach with a clip on the back so they are super easy to swap out to spice up the color story as your tastes and decor change over time.
