Great Week-end!

What a beautiful week-end this was! The weather could not have been better. Just a taste of May in March. I made some cupcakes this weekend for my son and his friends. They were so good and pretty I almost didn't want to eat them!

I worked out in my yard some Saturday and planted some pansies. They are one of my most favorite flowers because they have such beautiful colors. I love the purple the most. (Even though it looks kind of blue in this pic).

I also spread some new mulch around my pond. The spring residents of the pond have moved in and are making quite a noise with their annual mating calls. I counted 15 frogs in my small pond Saturday night. I sat out on my porch for a good hours sipping my coffee and listening to the sounds of the frogs. I am always so thrilled to hear them in the spring, it can lull me to sleep in a minute.

I also made a couple of "Wee Bunnies" from the pattern at the "Wee Wonderfuls" website. I am putting them in my grandmothers and sister's Easter Baskets. I made each of them a necklace with some broken beads that my grandmother gave me. I hope to get a picture of them tonight and I will post them tomorrow.

I just wanted to stop by and say thank you for visiting my blog and for your kind comment. That's so sweet of you say that we're "kindred spirits." As Anne Shirley would say, "Kindred spirits are not so scarce as I used to think. It's splendid to find out there are so many of them in the world." I've enjoyed my visit to your blog and plan on coming back for more visits...take care! BTW, those are yummy looking cupcakes!

see you there! said...

Pansy's are my Mom's favorite flower. I always try to find cards with pansy's on them for her. It isn't too hard in the spring time.

Can't wait to see the wee bunnies.
