Lilacs and other smelly Things

Working in the Hummingbird (cottage 6) yesterday, I was enveloped by the scent of the lilac blossoms.  Heavenly.

I want to share with you a beautiful vignette which includes some Wayfarer lilacs.

Martina from Sleeping Bear Dunes Tours came to visit me and took with her some of the lilacs from outside of cottage 7.  This is how she enjoys them.
Funny thing, I display my flowers in blue ball jars as well.

Looks great Martina, thanks for the picture 🙂

A Christmas Angel?

Again this year, we had a spectacular Easter Sunday.  It was fairly warm and pleasant. A lot of wind but who cares, when the sun is out.

Easter Sunday means Dinner at Dorothy’s house.  The members of the family that happen to be in the area at the time come to her house for Easter dinner. Mike and the boys are still in Arizona, so I went by myself.  Yummy ham and my favorite sweet potato recipe!!

So, while waiting for everyone to finally get there, I walked around the house and found these little treasures

I think Fuzz is hording rocks :mrgreen:

Lilacs, my favorite

The cute, little cottage across the street from Dorothy and Fuzz’s

Some thing was tunneling under the snow!

A Christmas Angel….WHAT?  A Christmas Angel? 😯
The poor dear must have been forgotten when all the winter stuff was packed away 😦

Ah yes, back to more timely things – daffodils 🙂

Happy Easter everyone
