This and That on Thursday

This is just one of those kind of this and that days so here we go!

Yesterday morning was that first morning of almost spring when I took my coffee and did my ritual walk through the garden and I quickly realized how much I had been missing that!

Even through several hard freezes and some sleet last week some of the camellias were putting on their pretty winter show…

a few hyacinths had popped into bloom and these are return bloomers – you can tell because their bloom is not as abundant…

but you know how I am about coercing plants to bloom again – another orchid success and I am loving it…

You know that thing about “it’s all in the details?”

Well, my powder room underwent a face lift last year but there was just this one little detail left before I was going to be satisfied with the outcome – pulls for the cabinet doors.  Earlier this year I saw some while wandering through an Anthropologie  store in Tucson that I thought were distinct possibilities.  I left without them.  Big mistake.  Ok, while in Atlanta last week I was telling my friend about this mistake and she said we should just take a quick side trip to the Anthopologie store there to see if they might have them.

I must be living right!

old vs. new…

One reader’s parents-in-law had saved their topper and a grandson used it for his wedding!
