Welcome To The 111th Masterpiece Monday!

How's your weekend? Flowers are starting to bloom in my yard, so I decided to snap a few pics for you.

 These first two pictures are of our apple tree in the back yard. There's just a couple of blooms and some little pink buds.

 The next three are in the front yard, where I planted some narcissus bulbs last year.

These are my favorite flowers and they smell incredible.

 I got them for free from It looks like they're starting to naturalize too, yay!

 The blooming flowers have officially given me Spring fever.

 So I got out my fakey flowers and dressed up "Old Rusty" with a Spring vignette.

 I call this my Coastal-Spring Mantel.

 I tried to get Festus to pose in this picture, but he was a little camera shy.

  1. I am totally jealous that you have flowers blooming. However....the snow has been absolutely beautiful. It helps to have not had to go anywhere and enjoy it from my windows. Haha!

  5. Hi Mary,
    Your post is beautiful and reminds me that Spring is not far off. Here in the high desert of central Oregon we are expecting snow...Flowers aren't peeking their pretty little heads out yet.

  6. Love seeing the spring flowers starting. I have a few delicate snowdrops in my side yard garden and they are little treasures. Thank you for hosting and have a wonderful week.

  7. How nice to have apple blossoms! The little narcissus look like doubles. They are beautiful. I'm going to check out that site. Thanks for hosting.

  8. Beautiful Pictures and fun to view for someone like me who just has a bunch of snow in the yard

    Those apple blossoms are like a breath of fresh air though I don't mind winter much...

  12. Hi Mary - I just found your site and I am a new follower! I love the pictures of your flowers beginning to bloom. Ours are still hiding here in the PacNW. I've linked up to your party with the Infinity Scarf I just sent to my daughter in Pasadena. It may be a little too warm for her to wear down there. Haha! Rich blessings to you, Patti@OldThingsNew

  13. Hi lovely lady.
    Thanks so much for hosting your party for us all. My post photo will not show on your page and I don't know why ?

  15. Loved your photos! They were joy to look at as the wind howled around our cabin blowing snowdrifts 5 feet high! I can't wait to see my flowers in a few months....3 to be exact. I think I have a severe case of cabin fever!
