Oh Happy Day!

The other day I was bopping along looking at all the spring blooms.  At a stoplight, while listening to my gospel station on the satellite radio, I started getting really into "Oh Happy Day!".  I mean, there might have been rhythmic clapping involved. 

Problem is- I had my top down, (convertible not apparel).  People are staying at me for a full cycle of a red light, while I gave a full gospel performance.  Lovely.

How could I not get excited though when these are in my yard and out my window?

My pansies have magically come back to life succumbed to my superior gardening skills, and my daffodils have sprung!
The best is my saucer magnolia- I could look at these purple and white blooms for ages.  I adore all these surprises popping in in my first spring in our little stone house.
Of course, these are popping up as well. . .but I'll think about those later right?

Also, thank y'all so much for the lovely compliments on my dress I wore in Dallas.  It's Lilly Pulitzer, and I can't find it on the website.  However, you can call Palm Village, and order it.  The ladies there are  awesome and super helpful- it's called the Vera Tunic Dress.  Happy shopping!


  1. I absolutely adore daffodils.

    We are a little further north than you, and I can totally understand why the springing flowers would put you in a gospel mood. We're still dealing with the ugly, dreary rainshowers up here and I am READY for some spring color and sunshine.

  2. Where's your Worth Turning 30 Mac & Cheese recipe? I stumbled upon your blog serendipitously and that caught my attention (I love any pasta and any cheese, therefore any mac & cheese!)

  3. Beautiful blooms and you know I love that song!!! It's my fave! xoxo
