Spring/Happy Easter/Tootsie Time link

It has been an unusual spring.Very warm some days. Today not so warm today. Weather bug says freeze warning till Friday. I had a fern and ivy set out but they went back inside for a little longer.The lilac tree is blooming. I am going to cut it back after this years blooms are done so I treated myself to a big bouquet. They smell wonderful.
 Time to use some of my collections. I have a lot of baskets. What is the point of having things if you do not use and enjoy them? My children are not going to want all my stuff so it does not have to be kept pristine for them.

My intent is to fill the baskets I have with plants from my greenhouse and maybe a few new plants VBG. If they get ruined from water so be it.
We added a new shelf to the front porch. It will be a great place to display the baskets of plants.It is just a little to cold yet ,but soon. See how good the lilacs look on the table under the shelf.
 Because of the freeze warning I covered my tulips.The last 2 years they froze off. As you can see in the back ground the hosta garden is looking good. You can almost see the hosta growing. The flowering almond is also in bloom.

A few days ago we were in the patio working when a car stopped. Not one we recognized. Turns out to be an old class mate of our oldest son. They were in the area for a family funeral. We had a nice visit. Bo said he spent as much time in this house as in his own. Fun memories. Great family.
I want to wish you all a Happy Easter. We will have our girls and their families here for a few days. j

Hope you do not get a freeze. The baskets will be adorable as containers! Happy Easter.

Your lilacs are pretty, ours are still in tight buds.
