Last week brought cold temperatures and fierce winds and I worried about this small snowball bush just beginning its bloom. But it came through beautifully. And I can't believe how long the flowers last!
It's just the third spring for us, but our neighbor's snowball bush is as big as a house!
We had real summertime temperatures this weekend, and I spent some time sweeping up the patios and freshening up the pillows. These cotton covers used to be pink and green. Much more faded now.
I seem to be beating the same drum here about summer cottons, but here is one more find from my Texas trip. A lovely lacy Victorian dress makes our move out onto the lawn official for the garden season.
This would make a gorgeous dress for a simple country wedding.
So many pretty details.
May is always such a busy month! But I hope you get plenty of time to move outdoors and enjoy the fresh air and sunshine. I can't wait to get started with the garden parties, which can be as simple as tea and a sandwich under the trees with a pretty cloth thrown over the table.
I've been away from the blog and have lots of catching up to do!
But thanks so much for visiting, and for your sweet comments about my little girls!
And I hope you enjoy the lovely month of May!
