Wow what a lovely post and those flowers are beautiful! That's your yard? We are nowhere near spring. Only cold, wet, rainy and soggy. I would give anything for your warm spring and your flowers.
I invite you to come by La Bella Vie for a quick visit. I have a post up about the Eastlake bed and you may have some information about a piece I have pictured. Plus I have linked back to Eastlake Victorian. I hope that's OK but I just love this blog.
Take care,
Terry Beaudry

Hi Terry-

I hope your temperatures warm up soon so the flowers in your area open, too!

I love your Eastlake bedroom set! I can't wait to see what your husband does with the bed.

Thank you for the nice comments!

Your flowers are just gorgeous!!! I had planned to start a rose garden this year but ended up buying flowers and planting them in pots. I do have one rose bush but it only blooms once or twice. Of course I do have my beautiful hydrangea:) In the meantime I'll just enjoy everyone else's roses!

Hi Pam,
Thank you so much for posting the links about Eastlake furniture. I must say this was such a beautiful era and I'm just sure we were born into it at some point! I especially love the antique website where you can actually purchase beautiful pieces.
Mark is working on doing the rest of the DYI project and should post in a week or so, the paint is next but our cold rain is preventing any painting right now.
Again, thank you so much for your information and help. As mentioned I'm linking back to your site when I can, its just lovely!

Thank you, Sweetbrier! This is my best time of year for my rosebushes. When the weather gets hotter, no more roses, and the hybrid bushes get blackspot and rust. Yuck!

Enjoy your beautiful hydrandea! :-)

Hi Anyes-

The smells are one of the best parts of gardening. They can be very intoxicating! :-)
