Hola Cottage Fix crew! I’m blogging in today under glorious sun filled skies and bright crisp air. The traditional yo yo temperatures we’re accustomed to here near the coast of Virginia are in full swing. Our weather people must stay on their toes that’s for sure. I even heard a mention of flurries in the forecast for later tonight—it was almost 80 degrees this past Wedneday. Oh yes, the floppin hoppers and toboggan worn all in the same week, a little something for everyone.
Our garden is starting to spring back to life after a short winter lull. The camellias are especially pretty right now, the red and white are in full bloom. And there’s also a pretty white blooming fragrant tree just going to town. I mustered up a fanciful bouquet with the back garden blooms, and then I added a couple sprigs of leftover green hydrangea blooms from a bouquet I picked up at Trader Joes last week. I also tucked in a branch from that beautiful white blooming tree I was telling you about. It’s a type of magnolia that blooms in early spring and it smells so good. We’re in zone seven and it seems things are off to a head start this year.
Well they’re calling for a cool sun-filled weekend and I’m thinking we’re going to finish up some yard work. I attempted working on a few outside projects earlier this week and came across a huge snake hiding under the azaleas. So that was the end of that! I know snakes live in our yard, we have lots of good hiding situations going on out there. But just don’t let me see them please!
Have a wonderful weekend!
