Spent a day at the 2019 Philly FLower Show. This year’s theme was flower power – 60’s edition. It’s just what the Dr. ordered to get everyone into a Spring mood! Many different displays and types of flowers as usual. This year I concentrated more on close-ups.
Sure it may be cold and wintry now but soon the birds are chirping, the buds are blooming, and the snow has officially melted. That means it’s time for your spring family session. Here are a few wardrobe tips to ensure the whole gang looks smashing:
Play up the fact that it’s spring. Have a necklace with a butterfly pendant? Perfect! An insect-printed tee? Yes, please.
Channel the colors of spring. Seriously – look out the window for inspiration for your family’s color palette. Greens, pinks, yellows, beige, khaki, and blues all work exceptionally well.
Layer up! Spring can be both warm and cold at once, so come prepared. We love spring scarves, light cardigans, vests, etc.
While strolling out to get the newspaper, I was impressed with how much dew was on the grass and how the morning sunlight was reflecting on it. It almost looks like frost! While it was somewhat a cooler morning compared to late thanks to yesterday’s cold front, it was by no means cool or anywhere near frosty conditions. The rain from the weak thunderstorm yesterday helped increase the ground moisture.
A team of tree trimmers has been in the area for a couple of weeks now trimming trees around power lines. This of course is a good thing to keep electricity flowing during storms. But I was surprised to see them pull up in front of my house. Why? My electric service is underground! I soon realized they wanted to take advantage of the fine shade my maple and oak trees provide on the front lawn. I didn’t mind as long as they keep their chain saws in the truck!
I think it a little ironic they are benefiting from something they take away from some other people’s lawns…
It’s been a while since I posted a photo of the robin eggs. There were four (4) total. And as you can see from today’s photos they hatched! I caught them napping while the parent was away gathering food. I hope they leave soon because that bush needs a trimming!
