Indoor Blooms





               Hi everyone,

                  We are having April showers here for a
            couple of days which hopefully will
bring May flowers.
                                                            In the meantime I am enjoying the beautiful
                                                           bouquet of tulips brought by a kind friend.

                                                                        In the sunroom I am enjoying
                                                                        my hydrangeas and geraniums.

                                                                               

                                                                          Pretty bouquets of tulips bring so
                                                                          much pleasure while I wait for our garden
                                                                          to bloom again.
                                                                         
                                                                          Sunny yellow.


                                                             



                                          We still have snow here so it will be awhile
                                                     before we have blooms, but each day we are
                                                    getting closer!

                                                              Enjoy the rest of your week,

                                                                                     Carolyn

Magnolia Plantation & Gardens

                                                                   

                                                When we went to Charleston a few weeks ago we went
                                                      to Magnolia Plantation and Gardens a couple of times. It is  
                                       a beautiful place to visit and we thoroughly enjoyed
                                  walking the trails bordered by camellias,azaleas,
                                    magnolias,redbuds rhodos etc . We enjoyed all the
               different birds and wildlife as well. 

                                 This was also the site of the wedding that I shared
recently.


                                   
                                                    We went early in the morning the
                                                    second time we were there and the
                                                    weather was lovely for taking pics.
                                                       Love the different bridges that are reflected
                                                       in the water.
                                                            There are also lots of beautiful statues.
                                                    The azaleas were blooming but not
                                                    quite at their peak yet.
                                                                     Romantic

                                                           Love the trees dripping with moss.

                                                                  The prayer garden
                                                            The camellias were still in bloom.

                                                                  So beautiful!

                                                                       These beautiful peacocks wandered
                                                                       freely around the gardens.

                                                          Azalea lined pathways

                                  If you are in the Charleston area I highly
                                            recommend a visit to this beautiful
                                            plantation especially in spring time.

                                         
                                           I hope you enjoyed my little tour around
                                           Magnolia Plantation and Gardens.

                                                 Have a wonderful day!

Dreamy



        Happy Weekend!

            I hope you are enjoying your weekend.
          We are still working on losing our here,
           but slowly it is going and it is nice to see
            a few daffodils poking up in the few places
that the snow has melted.
    Above is a shot of our bedroom.

                    I found these two dreamy lace dresses at
                    the thrift store this weekend and as luck 
      would have it, they both fit me.
                     I think I should have a  creamy lace garden
       tea party this summer!



                                                                        Dreamy



      This baby christening gown is more
      then 100 years old.

                                                                      Roses
                                                Hoping your weekend is the stuff dreams
                                                         are made of!

A Charleston Wedding




                On a recent trip to Charleston we
                  went to  Magnolia Garden Plantation
                a couple of times ~ it is so beautiful
in spring time.
                 The first day we went was a Saturday
            and they were busy setting up for a
wedding.



  I enjoyed watching the progress and was
charmed by all the beautiful details.

    I will let you wonder on your own.



Beautiful bouquet in silver vase.


Oh! so pretty.


   Lots of beautiful flowers.


Love this silver teapot used as a vase
for this lovely little bouquet.

Notice at the top of the photo that
they even strung lights for this
evening wedding.It must have been
so romantic........too bad I wasn't
on the guest list!



                                       I could have enjoyed sitting here just taking
it all in.

   Such a pretty cake too!


   Care to linger on the porch?


                                    This peacock was checking it all out too!

More bouquets.

                                           The path is strewn with white rose
                                                      petals and lit with lanterns.

                                                     It was so beautiful it almost made me want to
                                                    get married again.......but don't worry Andrew I
                                                    would still pick you!

                                                    I am joining Between Naps on the Porch
                                                    for Tablescape Thursday.

                                                                        Have a beautiful day!

                                                                                          Carolyn
