    Loved seeing your vignette. I had to pull all my tender plants back inside, we’ve had a cool spell glide through.. but this weekend out they go!

    Great selection.

    Gorgeous as usual. I was out digging in the dirt all weekend. ;-)
    That was followed by a wonderful rain. We go over 3 inches.
    Enjoy your day! ~ Sarah

    Well, if this doesn’t represent the beauty of spring, I don’t know what does! So bright and cheery. Love the boots with the flowers. It is just all so very beautiful.

    I love how you’re able to say so much with a single picture!

    I’m here at work but feeling desperate to go outside and plant some flower seeds. I wonder why??? :-)

    Love the little vignette on the bench. I have some of those same plates from Tuesday morning and just love them. It makes me feel good that I like so many of the same things you do. But you are a MASTER with plates, tables and the garden. Anything floral. Love love love the spring you are having. I actually saw a little green something sprout out of the ground here. Its about time. (smile)

    I so love those boots! They would be such fun to wear this spring.

  15. March 22, 2012 at 10:07 am

    I just love your vignette, your watering can and your boots. I wear my rubber boots (actually I got them for Girl’s Camp) for gardening and for washing the car and they are so great. I have those same adorable plates. They came after Easter to Tuesday Morning last year and so I was able to get a lot of them as nobody was shopping for Easter plates after Easter.
    Enjoy your gardening. (I did get peas, arugula and spinach planted before the snow dumped! Now they are all getting watered by the melting snow.)

    Oooohhh…love the gardening gloves with the little birds on them! The galoshes and watering can are cool, too!!! Pretty gardening items like that inspire me to get out there. I don’t last long once I am out there, but at least I give it the old college try! Blasted herniated discs and torn rotator cuffs! Such incredibly gorgeous flowers, and the dishes you chose are perfect with this setting! Love the flowers IN the galoshes!

    You are all set for your step into Spring. I especially love your seed box. Everything is so charming and furthers my spring fever.
    I am hoping to post again this weekend. Long work hours and a knee procedure delayed computer work a bit…but not my spring fever! Your post is so charming and beautiful and really sets the mood.

  18. March 22, 2012 at 11:09 am

    Hmmm, it was suppose to say…sets the mood for a day of gardening!

  19. March 22, 2012 at 11:37 am

    Love the cabbage dishes and the bunny plates! I have a collection of Bordallo Pienheiro plates that I keep adding to. You are certainly ready for Spring!

    Obviously, your heart went into this one. I am amazed at all of the details and your creativity. Thank you for sharing this – it is inspiring!

    There is so much inspiration in this lovely post! What a beautiful spot to sit and enjoy a meal, or a cool drink on a lovely day! Thank you Mary!

  22. March 22, 2012 at 7:48 pm

    Lots of inspiration in your spring vignette!
