Spring is in the air, in the garden, and in the cottage! oh my

Can you feel it?  The birds are chirping, the sun is shining, and the people are smiling!  Ahh … Spring is in the air.  And it has made its way into our little cottage.

white camelliasI can’t seem to get enough of these white camellias snipped from the garden!  They look like delicate white ruffles.
