I like Thursdays, March 28, 2019

Welcome to "I like Thursdays" hosted by LeeAnna at Not Afraid of Color!  What did I like this past week?  It got warmer out and the crocuses are blooming.  We are expecting even warmer temps this weekend and I can't wait to work in the garden!

I'm really enjoying changing up the garden this year.  It's a lot of fun to take the time to reimagine it.  I wouldn't say that it is a simpler layout but a more cohesive color scheme.  It's a lot of fun and gardening is one of the few hobbies that provides instant gratification; no matter what you do it always looks better when you are finished!

Speaking of flowers, two of my neighbors are antique dealers and they recently gave me this early McCoy vase that I love!  They thought I would like it because it is yellow and from the early twentieth century.  I've been writing about women's suffrage lately and they hoped it would keep my inspired--it does!

I like these appliques from my newest addition to my quilt collection.  It is a crazy quilt and I love the pony and the Great White Pyraneese dog!

Well I hope you are enjoying the springtime (or the autumn if you are from down under)!  Have a wonderful week!

Hi Michele! Yay to flowers starting to bloom. It won't be long and you'll have the whole garden replanted and can just stand back and admire. ~smile~ Roseanne

Hi Mickie... the garden is coloring up! I know you'll have a haven back there in no time. Nothing of color here yet. Other CO people are having blooms but not in our area, more snow coming this weekend. Yea.
No shot of the lovely Scout? Milo is as mischievous as ever... why he's standing at the back door barking at nothing, as I write this.

Pretty crocuses! I'm anxious to get out in the garden as well. This is the hard part for me where I try to remember what I planted. Pretty vase. And quilt.

Jeepers, everyone is showing spring growth! I'm so envious. Good luck with the garden refiguration. Interesting stuff, Michele. I adore that vase! Those appliqued pieces are wonderful too.

Your crocuses are pretty! I love them - the first color of spring! That's a neat vase, and the crazy quilt snippets are fun, too. I don't know much about crazy quilts, but it looks like just about anything goes when you're making one of those!

Pretty little crocuses. They're starting to pop up around here, too.
