Signs of Spring

PhotobucketMy daffodils and tulips are coming up and I am so excited ,the daffodils are almost ready to bloom and I just love it when my garden comes back to life.picked up the new Country Almanac magazine and it had some cute summer decorating ideas! Makes me want to rip up my carpet ! Do you ever feel that way? our carpet is a cream color and underneath this carpet is a bright red speckled 1930's linolium, our house was built in 1902 so it could be older, anywho ~ It really wouldn't work with my pale colored decor so thats why the carpet is still around but I would love some pergo flooring or those wide planked wooden floors you see in the cottage magazines.
These were just some of my roses from last summer , the just look like they smell good!

In this photo below I love the yummy color scemes here . All the roses came from the same garden just different days ~ I love how you can have fresh bouquets all summer long!

I love those kinds of floors! I wish we could have saved the flooring in our home when we remodeled, the linoleum had gold glitter in it!

Debra said...

Wow they are lovely! All this talk of spring makes me yearn to move. We never really get spring until sometime end of May here. We have even had snow as late as june once although it did not last.
I love the pictures.

I love all your rose pics...makes me crazy for spring!

Dolly said...

Oh Andrea your pictures are like a breath of spring!
We are suffering spring fever over here big time!
But still buried under a foot of snow!
Can you bottle those signs of spring and send them to michigan?
