Busy as a Bee in Spring

Lilacs intoxicate my home with their smell
for a short 2 weeks each year.

Spring is my favorite season. I love watching life come to all the flora and fauna: the blooming trees and shrubs, and the dozens of bunnies who like to make our yard into a minefield. This year has been especially lovely with the perfect blend of rain, sun, and cool temperatures. It wasn’t until this weekend that I noticed the first bees and wasps, and mosquitoes are still at bay. As my allergies will be until late June.

Almost as beautiful as my husband’s lush green lawn is this
beautiful Weeping Cherry tree, in bloom each spring.

This year is by far the busiest spring I’ve ever had. Beginning the last weekend in March and ending the last weekend in June, I have either a wedding, bridal shower, or baby shower every Saturday. I am heavily involved in several of these, most notably my brother-in-law’s wedding, my sister-in-law’s wedding, and my friend Emmalee’s baby shower. Spring is inspiring the decorations for each event, and in the weeks to come, I’ll share my madcap decorating adventures for each.
