The Son Did Not Come Out Here...

Oh, did I spell that wrong?...


It rained all day yesterday. Not conducive to garden parties. But we did have quirky bunnies and other fabulous Ren decorations in the House Across the Street (heretofore to be known as HAtS.)


HAtS, the house on the left, seen here in the view from my house. It's the one with the wonderful hooped rose bushes greening up and getting ready to burst into a frenzy of bloom.


And we did have peeps. No, not those atomic yellow or pink marshmallow sugar bombs, but peeps of sunshine.


And I did get out my Mom's last easter bunny and prop him up against one of the bouquets of flowers saved from the rain. I did steam a bundle of the new asparagus and sprinkle them with meyer lemon to contribute to our delicious meal.















And I did make a strawberry rhubarb galette in honor of the Son.


You know, the One that has Come...


...but was too little to travel from San Francisco. Yet. So we will have to have a Bébé coming out party later in the month, when the weather should be better anyway and even more flowers will be in bloom.

I've got to get my arms around that Dear Daughter and the Grand Boy later this week!!

Sending tender Spring thoughts to you and yours.

I love the wet shiney street! And Libby's little rabbit.

Thanks N2 for all that you are ;-) and more, and especially the soup!

I love your peeps and rabbits and the son who arrived. We had some peeps but made them do shows, attached them to hats, and roasted them over the fire. Good way to have marshmellows. Glad that you had a good time with friends.

Mary Moon - Thanks for inviting us in to your house, to your days, to your family. It is inspirational to do the same. And thanks for droppin by my house.

LC - Soup is the least I can do for you, Dear Friend. Wish I could wave a wand and make the code go away.

Sue - Got a glimpse of your Peeps on FB and the Peep activities look fabulous and FUN. I know Y'all had a fun day, too.
