Easter Around the House

It’s a countdown to Easter, with bunnies, birds, and flowers in and around the house. Enjoy the tour!

This sweet little wren is building her nest under this cabbage on the front porch.
These daffodils are a miniature variety from a tiny pot 20 years ago. They are always the first Spring flowers to arrive here in the garden.
My favorite papier-mâché bunny — this year, he turns 35 years old!
You might remember this wreath from a few years ago, when I first made it. And, another painted wooden bunny from a craft show.
Hopping down the bunny trail, some of my favorite little bunnies — a gift from a dear friend.
A cute little chick, and a dutch shoe painted by a classmate’s mom. When you sell crafts, you end up purchasing lots of fantastic things from the other craftspeople you meet along the way!
I love Easter lilies! These are faux, but I have heard from a friend to keep the real variety away from pets, since they can be toxic!
I have refilled this wreath frame with violas this time! Just love it!
These willows look amazing when they first come back to life in the spring. I started this tree from branches that I rooted, and now it’s almost 30 feet tall! I have underplanted this with lilies. This is the perfect time to dig the runners up, and use them to fill in any open spots that might have appeared in the centers of the plants.
These Nandina berries are still looking beautiful, but it’s best to trim them out before they drop. The berries ferment in the warmer spring temperatures, and if eaten, can cause upset to birds and other animals. Soon these Nandinas will fill with new sprays of gorgeous white flowers which will turn into this fall’s berries!
I have many pots of violas here and there on the deck and porches, and this year I am once again planting lavender. I love the scent, and it is deer-resistant!
The Aristocrat Pear tree is looking beautiful again this spring. It’s a slimmer Pear than the Bradford and is much more wind resistant — so, a good alternative!

One last photo with two more from my bunny collection. I hope that everyone has a wonderful spring, and a Happy Easter!
