This has been one of the most beautiful springs I can remember since I moved to AZ.
The weather has been cool....and we had so much early rain. I just love flowers so I thought today I would show some flowers I see at my home.

The tulips were at my grocery store. I had to have them with this peach and yellow color scheme. They are just beautiful...and what can say spring more than tulips!

Some of the views outside in my yard. I LOVE petunias. And they do so well here in AZ. I really would like to get some more pots this year and plant even more petunias. And of course, the little daisy like flower. Reminds me of my wedding! The trees are all in is so pretty. This year my tree isn't as full as we had to trim it, but it will be better next year.
I just had to say that I was so amused by the comments of the dog fan. It is either ooooh how cute, or why would you want that! That is what makes the world go round. Our differences in what we like!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. See you next week!!

Oh Ceekay, your flowers are so pretty. I love the tulips. They just are one of my all time favorites. Your yard is lovely and your petunias are so pretty. Doesn't it make you happy to see such pretty blooms and yes, the weather has been wonderful. Hugs, Marty

Hi Ceekay,
Things are looking so lovely around your house. I love those tulips and everytime I see them in the store I want to take them home.

I love how they just go anyway they want in the vase. So pretty.

As you know I love your dog fan and I told you I wanted a cat fan like that. The one I found was $100. I didn't buy it, but I would sure like to have it.

I am so behind!! First, your flowers are beautiful! Second, I can see having the dog fan for the novelity of it. I wouldn't buy it if it were too expensive, though.
Third, I love your little pillow that has faith, love, etc. on it. Too cute. I love the wire cloche and can't wait to see it painted. It will go so nice with your decor.
Glad you are out more and enjoying the trees and flowers at your house.
I wish I was there!

I grew these red and yellow tulips in my garden this year...they have always been a favorite of mine. And I LOVE petunias, they are one of the hardiest flowers you can grow. Go ahead, plant some more!! They're beautiful!!

Beautiful flowers. Fresh flowers in the house and pots and pots of flowers growing on the terrace always puts a smile on my face. Love the color combo of the tulips.

Ceekay, your tulips are such a beautiful color. I love the buckets of petunias. I am glad you are enjoying Spring in Arizona. Ours has been too cold, but I'm hoping for some great weather soon.

Oh, thank you for telling me the correct name for 'rust'! Brick - it's important to be politically correct. :)

Those tulips remind me of peach and strawberry jam. You're right ... tulips are all about spring.
