Three Things

 First, the small flower garden out front that I promised last week

 


That second floor room to the right with the bay windows is mine, and the tree in front is the one I mentioned last week. I can't wait for it to be green! As for the garden, I have no idea what the purples are, johnny jump ups maybe? If anyone knows please tell me! Lovely daffodils blooming and some tulips coming (probably next week), most of which did not bloom last year and none of which I planted. The previous owner is credited for everything that grows there though I would really like to plant some bulbs come fall if I can remember AND be motivated enough to go do it. Possibly ordering bulbs might help.

Second, at the shop (Maine-ly Pawn & Antiques), we have a new dedicated library, which I worked very hard on and am admittedly a bit proud of how it turned out. Previously this was the music/electronics room, a bit of a cluster, and not the least bit appealing. Now...well, check out the pics and judge for yourself... 






Finally, I have an idea for a smallish project that I will share if I decide to follow through (nothing like being committed, right?), and I finished Wyntertide and am now reading Lost Acre, the final book in the series, which I highly recommend for patient readers. This is not a rip through it book, this is a take your time and enjoy the scenery book.

Next week...tulips I hope! Have a fabulous week if you can and stay well.

  1. Our daffodils and tulips are long gone, we are now in the season of lilies of the valley and first irises too and lilacs!

  2. Library looks nice. No idea on the flowers - of course!

  3. Love the library and would happily settle down in it and browse. Of course.
    I am in the middle of obsessional bulb planting here. I do it every year and curse my greedy self every year - and then smile when Spring comes round and the blood, sweat and tears are forgotten.

  4. There is an app that identifies plants. Otherwise, I can be of no help in identifying your mystery flowers. The library turned out nice.

    1. Thank you, and I googled and discovered they may be grape hyacinth, which makes perfect sense since they look like mini hyacinths :)

  5. Your house looks as if it's the sort of place that has a fascinating history. I'm afraid I'm of no help when it comes to identifying flowers.

    Love,

    1. Not much of a history that I know of, and see my reply to Liz above! :)

  6. Love your house and pretty flowers. Because it's been so warm in April, my tulips are out too. And your library looks really cool too.

  7. I love the library!!

    We had those purple flowers in our garden in New England, but I don't remember what they were called. I'll have to see if my mother-in-law remembers.

    1. I think they may be grape hyacinth. They have no fragrance.

      I love the library, too :)

  8. Love your house but it also looks to be a hard to heat place for Maine. Our daffodils and tulips are gone for the season, but there are all kinds of flowers in bloom and the dogwoods have been outstanding this year.

    1. Very expensive to heat. We have oil plus a wood pellet stove not to mention the little space heaters in our rooms!

  9. Oh wow! I love what you did with the library. It looks so warm and cozy. Great job. And yes, I'm excited for all the green and flowers to replace all our Maine snow. LOL

    1. It's the best room in the shop now imo. And I'm thrilled spring has come, even if it means black flies.

  10. The library looks fantastic! And I think those might be bluebells. Not positive, but they are gorgeous whatever the case. :) Be well!
