Centerpiece of the Month~ April

Here we go again~ It is time for the centerpiece of the month.


Janelle at Talk of Tomatoes has been our gracious hostess. I look forward to seeing what everyone can come up with. Last month there were some really neat ideas. A Spot of Tea used tall pussy willows in a vase, check out her great shots. Sher, who is always asking What Did You Eat made a pretty pink bouquet with great stems of rosemary. Kitchen Mish~Mash used some naturally colored eggs to make an egg-traordinay centerpiece for her Easter table. My personal favorite would have to be Myriam's at Once Upon a Tart, who used an Italian tomato can for a unique poesy pot.



April is a month I look forward to all winter. In spite of the yellow pollen, this is the most glorious time in Alabama. The weather warms up, warm sunshiny days, but the nights are still cool. Our yard is full of blooms~ and I can honestly say it has little to do with my green thumb. My centerpiece this month is all about springtime in Alabama.How can that not make you smile?

I have an extra cup for coffee...
Y'all bring the snacks.

Just sighing in awe here...midwest does not have many of the colorful Southern flowers!!

Those flowers are gorgeous! So cheerful and springy! All we have to boast about here in N.E. are a few daffodils starting to blossom. =)

Sandy, spring is my favorite time of year too & AL is not disappointing this year! Love your arrangement. I'm really enjoying digging in the dirt about now.

PS One of my friends told me she ate at the Whistlestop last week...I told her about meeting you online & that I really have to get over there too & try it out. She gave it a big thumbs up!

I love, and miss spring in Alabama. I lived in Mobile for several years and will never forget the gorgeous azaleas. They are magnificent. Your centerpiece reminds me of the beautiful colors everywhere when I lived there.
