Favorite Things

My favorite color combo in the garden is orange and purple.



My favorite blooming scent is Jasmine. It is exploding here right now.


A pretty new mug was an early birthday gift from a friend.


Weekend pancakes. My own eggs make the batter so golden and rich. Remember my pancake tip here.


Folks have asked me where I got the ceramic egg holder. Target on clearance last year. They were $5. Maybe with spring they will carry them again. I found them in the kitchen department.

My favorite garden combo is yellow and purple, but that orange is a beauty, too. I'm thinking I may get out and clear out the "winter" mess really soon. I'm still stuck in November, it seems.

Ooh ... homemade pancakes. That's a lovely treat.

Nasturiums are one of my favorite annuals for sure. Lobelia too except they tend to die out on me by the end of July.

I am jealous of your flowers, we are expecting 9-13 inches if new snow tonight and tomorrow!

Love your flower garden, such pretty blooms. I'll have to keep an eye out for the ceramic egg holder, that is too cute!

Your flowers are gorgeous. Spring has well and truly arrived for you. We are still dealing with snow, but by the end of this month... hopefully... we will have something pretty to look at.

Oh I can not wait to have nasturtiums growing in the garden again.

Love the egg crate. I just saw it at Williams Sonoma. Holds 12 eggs. Just $19.95.
I'm jealous too. We are getting sleet& snow tomorrow. In the meanwhile I will dream of snow.
Have a great week. Blessings, Becky

I need to get some color in my garden....nothing like fresh yard eggs :) Blessings

Leslie's Garden said...

I love all your favorite things, but that picture of the jasmine is gorgeous. What is the reddish/purple plant growing around it? I kind of have a thing for cups, so I'm really loving your birthday gift, too!

Oh, I wish I had something blooming. Cannot wait. The birds are getting busy and darting in front of the window as I type. So I guess spring is just about here!

It's so nice to see your blossoms, we are in the middle of a blizzard again.
Your eggs look so wonderful and the batter so rich!
Hugs, Cindy

It's the simple things that make a big impact. Love your flowers and all the pretty things you post. I found my egg holder at AC Moore craft store and I saw them at TJ Max also. Have a great week. The sun was shining here in Ky today but possible snow for tomorrow. We are ready for spring and summer. :)

Ginger Zuck said...

I'm jealous too! LOL, I'm so tired of brown, bare, muddy and ugly I could scream! Cannot wait for a few more weeks when we can landscape and plant something pretty!! Loved your pics, made me smile and vaguely remember. Thanks

I have a favorite trio. Yellow, purple, and red. Your blooms are so gorgeous. I actually got to work in the garden a bit today. My back is still buried in snow, but my front beds were dry. Working the ground rejuvenates me. The egg holder is so fun. I am going to keep my eyes out for one.
hugs,
Jann

Linda said...

All your flowers look so pretty...I love that color combination too! I need orange and yellow in my garden all the time. My lobelia are starting to come back from years past...I love how they do that...one of my favorites to have in the yard. Have a great evening!

Kris said...

I love that color combo too! My nasturtiums are blooming, and my jasmine is exploding too!!!
Okay, I need a reminder again. What day is your birthday???

Your flowers are looking wonderful! I have seen those egg holders at Joann's in past years. Maybe they will have them this year too.
