Southland in the Springtime



Welcome Springtime!!! I have been anticipating your arrival for months.



With the opening of the new blooms. I have gotten the hankering to bring that freshness inside, so..... I'm bringing out the buckets and the brushes. I'm opening up the windows and the doors. I'm scouring every nook and cranny. Clearing away the clutter and chasing out the drab of winter.


I'm washing and hanging out the Spring linens.....



While Sadie supervises from the sunny window.



And when I'm finished~




I'm going outside until fall:-)

Care to join me?

Happy Spring !~Rhonda

Awww I wanna come.The pollen is so bad here I can't put my table clothe out on the deck. We really need to bleach the porches.

You go girl! I'm envious of that energy! And the pictures are lovely.

It could be, just maybe, that I'm so inspired by this that I might take a whack at it when I get home from work!

Happy Spring! I am loving this time of year. All of the Bradford Pear tress and Weeping Cherry trees are blossoming. It is so pretty driving around the country side!

Hi, I just found your blog. If there's a heaven on earth, you have found it. Thanks for sharing those beautiful springtime pics. Here in Western NY, the first day of Spring greeted us with an inch of new snow. Oh well, time is on my side.

Smiles, Debbie

I love this post! :) The table setting in the last photo reminds me of when I actually made the effort and hosted outside dinner parties with friends on my patio...I used a vintage table linen like that, and blue mason jars for flowers!! Great minds think a like....
