April Botanical Gifts

I was blessed yesterday with a surprise visit from my mother and father, and they came bearing spring gifts! I thought you'd like to see some of the pretty things they brought. The arrangements were made by my multi-talented mother.

It's spring in Maine but we still don't have any bright colors of which to speak. Other than the blue sky and sea, our world right now is a pallet of muddy shades of brown and grey. So all these cheerful gifts brighten up our house and our spirits while we wait for nature to burst into color.
