Enjoying the lilacs.

The lilacs are just starting to open here at the cottage.
Bringing them inside means the flowers will fill the air with their intoxicating fragrance.

I love to fill vases, and jugs full of them!

It will be a while before the lavender blooms.
One lovely flower at a time here at the cottage.

Our growing season is short, so we savor each flower as it blooms, and dry as many as we can to enjoy them throughout the seasons.

A sweet little bird gifted to me by my dear friend, Giselle.
She certainly knows me well.

A recently found 1920's sofa for the sun porch.
Great for spending lazy summer days watching the boats go by....or reading on a rainy afternoon.

Speaking of reading....

The sunshine pouring in through the windows has been heavenly!
I do love a bright home, with big windows...especially facing the water as it reflects the sun this time of the year!

Have a happy weekend!
Enjoy the sunshine, and whatever is blooming at your house at the moment!

It's Spring at the Lake.

Now that Spring has finally arrived here at the Lakehouse, the sun comes streaming in through the windows so bright..... Everything looks fresh, and new!!
I changed the table in the dining room.
The big round one is now in the living room, and a farm table is gracing the pretty rug on the wood floor in the dining area.

The design on the rug shows more, and the trim and base of the round table also shows so much more now that the dining chairs aren't blocking their view!

The color and wood carvings are beautiful!

The table also fills up the large space in the living room.

I am ready for the warm weather, and working outside.

I noticed the Spring bulbs are popping up out of the ground. 
With a couple of good rains, we should have some flowers!!

The tree frogs were chirping this evening.
The sound always warms my heart.

I plugged in the dragon flies.
They entertain us as their wings open and close, as if drying their wings in the warm sun.
As I type, I can look out my window and see the waves being pushed by the wind. It's a sight for sore eyes after such a long Winter. A Robin hops along the ground searching for worms, and a Mourning Dove is cooing for a mate.  Two fishermen are out for Crappie. How I've longed to see green grass.
It's Spring at the Lake. I am glad.
