This Week In Annapolis…

A whole lot of this happened…

Blue Angels shook the sky!

Newly commissioned officers tossed their hats in celebration.

It was great weather for a parade…

…and for a goofy Princess to pick some strawberries!

Look what happened next! Homemade ice cream. A little cream, sugar and strawberries add up to a whole lot of yummy!

Simple Joys!

Oh, the simple beauty of Spring! Never over-embellished, never gaudy in its most glorious form and never tiresome to experience. ┬áMy hope is that I ┬áhave captured this “Spring Attitude” in my seasonal arrangement (and don’t tell anyone, but some of my flowers are not even real).


A neighbor’s gift of peonies look stunning in an antique silver pitcher.


A few elements on a mantel reflect the simple beauty of Spring…what is sweeter than roses in a Mason jar?


Blossoms in a…(well I’m not sure what it is, but it is old and rusty and found in an old barn) is a striking combination.

Unexpected flowers everywhere!


The simple joy of a front porch after a good rainstorm…

May Day…Annapolis Style

One of my favorite events in Annapolis is the annual May Day basket displays throughout the downtown area. Businesses and private residents vie for the coveted winning ribbons and an invite to the beautiful tea party sponsored by the garden club. Enjoy some of my favorites…and consider visiting Annapolis for this wonderful event next year! You can stop by my house for a little tea and conversation.

Flowers on a vintage bike

I love these flower filled boots

Flowers on a tabletop at a lovely cafe

The doorways are filled with flower baskets

Guitar with flowers!

The moment I became a Mama to a little Princess…Celebrating all Mothers today…no matter what path you took to arrive at this privilege of a lifetime.
