Happy Easter, Happy Passover, Happy Spring Festivals

Easter and Passover Plantings

I’m not one for door wreaths, except at Christmas. Evergreens tied with red plaid bows, and a discreet juniper berry here and there.

That said, for a change of season, or significant holiday, I replant my front pots. For spring this year, and Easter, I thought yellow. I felt yellow. Yellow it was.

I need new gardening gloves. But one can make do quite happily, engaged in planting. Happy Easter, Happy Passover, Happy Spring Festivals all over the world. Have a wonderful weekend, when it arrives.

    Happy Easter Lisa,

    I spy with my little eye, a yellow glove!

    It is gardening weather here too!
    I buy my gloves in multiples, as I am like a guerilla gardener!

    Yellow = Happy in my book too.

    Hoppy Spring!

    I have a gardener friend who swears by latex surgical gloves for gardening. She spends about 20+ hours a week in her garden and she says they keep her hands moist – apparently the soil is quite drying to the skin.

    The notion of a planter on the porch is just bliss, it looks beautiful in that image. (Very artsy Miss Privilege!)

    Happy sentiments of the season back to you, have a wonderful weekend.

    Always a tonic spying newly filled pots and fresh green sprouts in the garden and yard.

    Atlas garden gloves.
    My gardening satisfaction is measured by how many pair I can wear out in a season. Buy them in 5 pr. paks.
    You will like them, alot.

    Happiest Spring!

    Thank you, Lisa, for the good wishes! We celebrate Easter here, but this week-end we will also be celebrating birthdays – mine, DD#1, and DH! Once we are finished with Easter service, egg hunts, etc., it’s down to the presents.:-)

    Your flowers are lovely! I finally got around to setting out that rose I wanted last season.:-)

    Have a blessed week-end!

    The yellow is just the perfect touch of sun needed this time of year…at least here in the NW anyway where spring has decided that it’s going to show up around summer this year!
    Have a wonderful Easter weekend and happy planting!!

    I was mad for yellow earlier this spring. We forced masses of forsythia in a large urn on our DR table for a party, it was breathtaking. And I don’t actually like forsythia all that much!
