Earlier this week my husband had taken the day off of work. Since we both love to garden and enjoy looking at beautiful nursery displays, we decided to drive to one of our favorite spots. This is a place where you could spend days and never see everything that they have. One of the best signs tucked away within the plants states, "We buy junk and sell antiques." Of course springtime is an exceptional time to visit any nursery as all of the flowers look so refreshing after the winter blues. The greens tend to be so vibrant as the new leaves start to bud out on the trees and the flowers just seem to scream "look at me."
Don't you just love the display of succulents?
We grabbed a bite to eat at a darling cafe and then headed home along the coast. The wildflowers covered the hillsides. It would be such fun to view it from a plane as it must look like painter's palette. The blue lupine was dotted in with yellow mustard, orange gazania and golden poppies - our state flower. All of this was against a backdrop of lush green hills and crystal blue waters of the Pacific.
I have been busy this week working on a couple of quilting projects. I have completed my spring quilt for the Four Seasons Quilt Swap and will share a photo of it once I know it has arrived at the recipient's home.
With the Easter weekend upon us, I wish all of you a blessed time celebrated with family and friends.
