What a smashing finish, congrats. Love that linen. And the flower pictures are so comforting - it's good to know that spring is on the way :-)

Another absolutely adorable snowman! And you have flowers - you're so lucky, but it does give me hope that spring is slowly making it's way to Illinois.

It's so nice to see signs of spring Beth, I can never wait for it to come each year. I love the frilly hellebore, it's such a pretty colour.

Cute snowman piece there! I have daffodils and anemones peeking out from under the mulch (and snow this weekend past!). I need to plant more bulbs... My hubby uprooted a bunch when doing some work around the house. Sigh! But... I will get more! Hugs!

Wow, you've got lots of things in bloom! I've got my first snowdrops, but haven't seen any daffodils peeping up yet. And that really pink hellebore--I've not seen one that pink ever. It's gorgeous. My hellebore are still hanging out, but will bloom fairly soon. I've moved one from a total shade spot to partial shade last year, so it should bloom much better.

You can feel Spring is just around the corner, such a lovely time of year. A time of renewal and new life.
