“Springtime is the land awakening.
The March winds are the morning yawn.”
~ Lewis Grizzard
I took my cue from the transition of the seasons and set a casual garden themed table this week.
Browns are gradually giving way to green again. . .
Bulbs are emerging and starting to bloom.
I moved a few architectural items from inside to the table on the porch. A pair of weathered corbels, as well as a trio of spindles, repurposed as candle holders, sits along side this cloche topped urn.
My tastes are eclectic~ you may have noticed :-) but for lake living, this most reflects our style. We move at a slower pace and are more relaxed & casual when we are here.
I layered my table with burlap and topped it with a jute runner~ much like our natural areas that are covered with a fresh blanket of mulch to warm the tender little plants just waking up.
Our tree, reflected in this cloche, is covered in tiny buds~
I’m looking forward to watching the bees buzzing around the blossoms next to the porch . . .
My bunny pair has a distressed finish, giving them an aged appearance. . .
Please don’t eat the ivy :-)
An abandoned Robin’s nest from last Spring is now home to blown quail eggs~
I love the character & patina that history and age lend. I like to imagine what house or porch my pair of corbels may have come from.
“Yesterday the twig was brown and bare;
Today the glint of green is there.”
