I put almost all of the bunnies away but kept some of my favorites out as we have bunnies outside too! One lived under my neighbors deck last year and I loved seeing him/her? So, after Easter, I changed things up with my birds, birdhouses, gardening things etc. We are doing lots of yardwork outside too. I always enjoy changing things up on this hutch. It is one of my favorite things cause Joe made it for me. This piece is actually a candle holder but I did a little arrangement in the "nest" that can hold a candle.
I also changed out the arrangement on the top. I had the one with flowers and egg picks and changed to this rattan covered vase with a spray of white flowers.
The bottom shelf kept the bunny on the stand and then I added some birds.
On the middle shelf is a platter that was a gift from Joe's cousin when her brother was battling cancer and I went to all his appts. with him.
I love this saying and the designs on it too. I placed a shovel that has a pot with an egg on it.
Top shelf has 2 birdhouses and my lamp.
I have a set of 3 of these little gardening girls:)
I got this birdhouse many years ago up in Lancaster county. The bird on the stand is new this year.
I always add some greens around the base of the lamp to hide the cord.
My gardening bunny stayed on the top of the hutch.
I added a few flowers to my bunny bucket.
Thanks so much for your visit. We are set to have summer like temps on Thurs., Fri. and Sat. In the 80's so we are having another roller coaster of temps as it has been in the 50's yesterday, and today.
Good morning! I hope Spring has sprung where you are. We are having a roller coaster of temps; 87 on Easter Sunday and by next Sunday it might not get out of the 50's!!! So, I enjoy every single Spring day we have. Joe and I have been working in the yard and soon it will be all mulched and ready for flowers!!! I am antsy to plant but it is a little too soon. As I am putting my bunnies away for another season, I decided to set a new table using birds AND bunnies. The inspiration was this runner that features birds and some script. So, since I have 2 bunnies with script on them they hopped right over to the table! Lots of organics are incorporated onto this table. Rattan handled placemats, burlap chargers, silver, pearly handled flatware and rattan covered glasses. At first I set the table with just the bird napkin ring then remembered I could use my mini wreaths as rings as you will see further down. The napkins look like burlap too.
2 bird votive holders are at each place setting.
Close up of the runner
and the script.
These bunnies fit in very nicely with their burlap script outfits.. Bunnies don't have to JUST be for Easter!
This little bird on a rock is perched right here.
I am reusing my SPRING box and have placed in it a birdhouse, a ceramic bird, a large nest and a shovel with a pot and egg.
This little watering can features 2 tiny birds.
Mrs. Bunny looks so cute in her straw hat!
The plate stack is a variety of black and white dishes. The bird appetizer plate,
the scrolled salad plate
and the dinner plate with branches and flowers.
The rattan covered glasses are perfect for our beverages.
I am using the rattan covered S and P as well.
The mini wreaths add a lot of punch and look great with the placemats.
This is a fun table that will stay for awhile.
As you can see, I don't have the bunnies all put away yet but will soon! It is hard to keep up with working outside and inside:)
First I want to wish you all a very Happy and blessed Easter. I hope you have plans to be with family or friends. Today I decided to walk around the yard and take some shots. This was early afternoon. Then I went to get my nails done and then to the grocery and when I got home we had gotten mulched!!!! I was so happy, I went out and took new shots. I will show you a comparison of some places before and after. They only mulch the front, what they landscaped. Everything we did, we are responsible for. So we will get more mulch and do that ourselves. Starting at the front door, I now have real flowers in the bunny planters:) Last time I shared the porch I had faux flowers, as it was still too cold.
Hyacinths in this guy,
and pansies in this one.
I will be planting real flowers in the urn, hopefully soon!
Here is a pot of pansies before mulch,
The rock garden before
This small viburnum has one bloom so far:)
The hostas are just starting to come up.
Here I have a hyacinth coming up IN the lambs ear! When we planted the lambs ear, the hyacinth was gone so we didn't realize it was there:) This is in the area around the pond so not mulched yet.
The phlox is spreading
This whole bed around the pond will be mulched soon.
The fish are awake and happy. I see some new babies too!
My color scheme this year is going to be lots of blues and whites. These pillows are perfect, I found them at Home Depot. The solid blue pillows are from Walmart, $5.00!!!!
This blue and white pot also from Home Depot.
Everything always looks so manicured after the bed are edged and mulched. I love it. Now when they mow, it will look even better!
This purple hyacinth will be moved to the rock garden, I think. Unless I get a match and have a pair for here.
