My sweet friend, Amanda, at "i am baker" wrote THIS GREAT POST on Pinterest etiquette. If you don't know Amanda, she is the creator of some of the most amazing cakes and sweet treats. You can go HERE to see her recipe index. In addition, Amanda is such a thoughtful individual. I knew that when she shared her thoughts on the subject of Pinterest that it would be worth reading -- for all of us! I hope you'll take a minute to check it out -- and perhaps even make changes to the way you "pin."
And now... let's see what's up!
There's lots of new life on the trees, as well as on the hydrangea bushes.
Some of the daffodils have wilted away after those 80 degree days with no rain and constant sun, but some hardier varieties have hung on. This is definitely not the typical spring-time weather that they expect.
Tulips are popping up here and there. Every year I tell myself that we need to plant more. Maybe this will be the year - in preparation for next spring?
I was happy to see that some of the Bleeding Hearts came back. They are a sentimental childhood favorite.
I'm loving those pink apple blossom buds -- so pretty.
How about those little seeds on the "October Glory" Maple? Aren't they sweet?
And last but not least -- another childhood favorite... LILACS. These are usually open some time around my sister's birthday at the end of MAY, not on April Fool's Day!!!! I was so surprised to see a few flowers (and this is no April Fools photo!!)
So, what's up at your house?
