Spring has sprung here in North Carolina! Between the rain showers and storms, I had a window of beautiful spring weather to enjoy some welcome sunshine and a little alfresco dining last week!
The azaleas were in bloom and it was a “nothing could be finer than to be in Carolina in the morning” kind of day, with blue skies, low humidity and temperatures in the 60s. I wish I could place an order for weeks of this mild spring weather. . .the temperatures are climbing close to 90 degrees today.
A table runner with a blooming watering can, butterflies and bunny & chick with eggs provided the inspiration for a table the week before Easter.
Hilltop Garden Friends gathered at the table. . .
Bunnies and a watering can were blooming for a centerpiece. . .
I cut some snowball viburnum and azaleas, to join some hydrangeas leftover from a blooming table runner.
The watering and taller bunny can hop over to the patio wall while dining so not to block anyone’s view at the table.
When Lola’s not wearing her bunny ears, she wants to be close by to supervise. . .
She’s content to watch and nap from her portable pen on the patio.
The Japanese Maple is always beautiful when it leafs out the beginning of spring!
