Sunshine, flowers, and butterflies

I took 30 pictures before I finally captured this beautiful butterfly who finally sat still enough for this shot.  
I hope your day is filled with sunshine, flowers and butterflies :-)

Sun, sky and water

Traveling over the 20 mile long Chesapeake Bay Bridge, I captured this amazing formation of clouds. The suns reflection appears to be a mirror over the vast expanse of water.

The Porch

Our porch is not large but I wanted to have a little place to escape to read, enjoy tea or lunch or just watch the birds as they come and go from the feeder.

My original thought was to find some pretty white wicker furniture. But when I found this set at Home Depot, I knew it would be perfect for our little nook.

A little note about these luncheon napkins. My step-mother gave these to me, along with a matching tablecloth. The tablecloth was used til it became thread bare and badly stained, but I never used the napkins. They were a wedding gift, so they are probably considered vintage by now ;-)

The Boopie glasses were a Goodwill find.

Since the weather has been so nice, you can find me out here with my book and cup of tea.

A place called paradise

Have you ever been to a place called Paradise?? I am so fortunate to live in a place of balmy days and enduring sunshine.

Many friends that visit from the north expect to see only sand, seashore, flamingos and palm trees.

Here is a little bit of my Florida..........






























I never tire of the beauty that surrounds me. There are certainly some places that fall short, but when we look for the good, we will almost always find some ray of sunshine.

The fragrance of spring

Easter is fast approaching. Bringing a lighter touch to my table. I like to add soft pinks to highlight the Red Transferware.







 I love pink depression glass. You can never have too much pink :-)


Enjoy the fragrance of Spring!

Reflections

Parts of the country are still deep in snow.  But here is the south, we have been enjoying 80 degree weather.

I've started planting flowers and a few veggies.  But the most pleasure I get is seeing these sweet little birds come to the bird bath.




See this little fellow looking at his reflection in the water??  Actually he was getting ready to hop into the water.
I tried to capture him in the water, but he was too quick, and my point and shoot was too slow.

Butterflies are Free

Spring is bursting all over down here in the south.  The flowers are showing their amazing rainbow of colors everywhere I go.

I love setting up a table on our back porch.  The weather is so fine that we can enjoy it any time of day.








If you stop by, we can share a little Spring lunch.
