We're still having a sunny warm week! Today, my day off, I remembered to plant these daffodil bulbs which I bought a month ago. The variety is "Tahiti" which is a double daffodil with and orange ruffle. I planted a dozen. They should come along to brighten our world next March!





It has been an altogether good day, laundry, housework (a little), a walk in the park with Mr. Pear. Slowly, carefully. Still to be seen.... a maple tree or two with pretty leaves!
Then reading "The Lacuna" by Barbara Kingsolver. I have only just begun reading it and it is GOOD!
I have finished quilting on the Dresden plate quilt which I have been handquilting for the last few months. Today, I am sewing down the pastel scrappy binding. It is a classic!

More creative fun here....a page from a collaborative altered book/scrapbook/art journal. This page was done by my friend Paula who found the wonderful book at a thrift store, an older decorating book by Tricia Guild. Wonderful photos for us to play with. Great color throughout the entire book....this will be fun! [click on the photo to see the page larger].

The daffodils will be wonderful! And they multiply which is great. I just got Lacuna from the library yesterday and I am going to start reading it tonight! We always like the same books! Enjoy your weekend! It's beautiful here, too!

Yes it is time to plant those bulbs. Those daffodils are so pretty. I love Barbara Kingsolver.
Looking forward to reading Lacuna.
Hope you are enjoying a beautiful weekend.

I wish it was March already here - those daffs will be so pretty. We are still having our string of warm weather.

I will have to ask for "The Lacuna" for Christmas.

My computer has a virus - don't know when I can get it fixed so am back to e-mailing at the library. Bah!

What gorgeous daffies! I am so lax about getting bulbs in the ground. I never think of it until I see the little tips in spring and then I regret my laziness.

I can't seem to keep up with all that you are doing. Your spring garden will be lovely. I already miss my flowers and they haven't been gone that long.
Happy everyday,
Mary
