April Showers Bring May Flowers

April Showers Bring May Flowers

This saying is very true at my house. May is very colorful here. We have the sweetest pink roses blooming right now. The smell is so wonderfully fragrant. I wish I could just bottle it up for later in they year! I am unsure of the variety, they were here when we moved in.
We also have pink, red and white peonies. Red Roses, wild roses, sweet william in a variety of shades.
The mountain laurel is in bloom along with the purple wisteria and Irises.

We have had a few days of rain and the petals started falling off of some of the flowers so I decided to see if I could capture a few in their beauty by drying them. I will take pictures of the flowers on the plants when the rain lets up.

 Sweet William and Red Rose
 The most wonderful smelling Rose
white peonies, pink and red roses and sweet williams

Hopefully they will dry nicely. Every time I walk near that spot in the house it smells like a rose garden!

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all of the wonderful women!

My lovelies made my favorite for breakfast: homemade old fashion sour cream doughnuts
Here is a link to the recipe:
 They were delicious. They even made a glaze to dip them in. There was so much glaze left they decided to glaze other things such as bacon and hotdogs. I passed on the glazed hot dog but tried the bacon, it was interesting :)

I was crowned Queen for the day with one of the Crowns I like to make. I wore the white one :)

For the Princess or Queen in your life. Perfect for Mother's Day. You can get one here:

We got a movie to watch later called

The Secret World of Arrietty (2010)

It looks cute. We love to watch the animated movies together as a family.

Then we will have family game night and play some board games.

Off to enjoy the rest of the day with the babies. Hope you have a wonderful Day!
