Hopping Up & Down the Bunny Trail


 The weather, meteorologically-speaking,

 has been Hopping Up and Down the Bunny Trail ~


Unpredictable with some sunny days in the 60’s,

 cold & rainy days in the 20’s & 30’s,

followed by blustery days with wind advisories~

 fortunately for us, no March snow.

The plum trees are dressed in pink blooms

and putting on  their annual show

despite the cold & windy weather.

 I cut a few branches to enjoy

some blooms in my Potting Shed

before they blow away~

Wishing you snow-drift-free

Easter Egg Hunts~


And a Bunny Trail filled with Blooms

and Spring Weather this Weekend!


Happy Easter!

    Up north, we have to force the cherry blossoms! In fact, the forsythia has not bloomed and we are in the 30’s today. Your photos make me feel that spring is really on the way…not just on the calendar!

    Beautiful images for Easter. At least you have some blossoms there! :) Wishing you a blessed Easter. Pamela

    Great post. Mentioned your blog in my post today.

    Oh so pretty Mary! Crocus and early daffs here so far, that’s it. Love the tree blossoms, I think they’d have frozen/blown off in yesterday’s snow! Your spoon is truly smile worthy-enjoy:@)

    The flowering branches from your plum tree look absolutely gorgeous and making it so spring~like in your home. All of the colors look so great together. I am so loving the dishes in your wooden tote as well as all of your rustic but elegant pieces. Thanks for some great eye candy today!

    Mary, what a beautiful post. I love everything and it all works so well together. I would never leave your beautiful potting shed. The spring branches and bunnies are great. Love it!!!

    fun fun fun post, how darling to play the day away with flowers and bunnies~ i thought our gardens were in synch, but our plum trees bloom feb 1st, surprised to revisit them with you, but flowers year round anywhere are delightful :-) spent the day planting by the sea, i hear you on the bunny hop thermometer, 30s in the morn, 70s in the afternoon, IF tucked on the deck corner and out of the winds… today was breathtakingly beautiful, rain tomorrow, all the better to hit the nurseries~

    I’ll keep calm and garden on vicariously through you! What beautiful photos!!! You really know how to make Spring look special! I love that bunny precariously holding that teacup full of flowers! Hooray that you are getting some warm weather there! I hope you have a warm and wonderful Easter weekend!

    Who knows these days what the weather will bring, but I have no complaints. Houston has been beautiful in this season of rebirth though the thermometer has dropped a bit the last couple of days. Peter Cottontail may hop no further than here when he sees how lovely it is.

    We Northerners are thisclose to hunting down Punxsutawney Phil- so much for his prediction of an “early spring”! Enjoying your Easter and springtime posts as they are a feast for the eyes, not to mention they give us hope that warmer weather is on its way :)

    Happy Easter!

    I wish we had something, ANYTHING, blooming here! Last year, the magnolia tree was in full bloom. Not this year. Barely a swollen bud. I love how your placed them in all the perfect places :)
