This sweet little ceramic chick appears every spring. It was a gift from Nichole, a family friend and our go-to babysitter when our boys were young. She’s always been a wonderful presence in our lives.
I gathered a few flowers from our spring garden today, with just enough purple and yellow blooms to fill the tiny vase.
The garden posy includes Snapdragons, Daffodils, Bachelor Buttons, Pincushion flowers, Campanula, Statice and a mystery flower.
I photographed the same flower just last week at a home tour.
Then one appeared in my garden, probably carried by the wind or dropped by a bird last season. It pushed its way up between two shrubs and flowered today. Serendipity!
Can you help me identify the flower?
Mystery flower: white, purple and yellow
After a hectic few days, I was finally able to catch my breath. I opened an extra-special package from my kindred spirit, Boomdee. I wish you could have seen the smile spread across my face as I opened the tiny treasures. The sweetest little chair appeared, along with tiny wooden stepping ‘stones’ in a lovely moss-green. An adorable lantern, also on display in Alyster the Gnome’s cozy home sent my heart a flutter. Isn’t that the cutest thing you’ve ever seen?

Step right up
There were more treasures and a beautiful card and the most amazing package you’ve ever seen, decorated with bunnies, a fence and pretty spring flowers. Be still my heart. This paper posy decorated the card inside.
