    What a lovely ambiance your flower arrangements add to your elegant table settings, Cindi.They obviously take time and forethought to put together...a very nice touch.

    Good morning, Cindi. What skill! Your arrangements are fabulous. This is something I could never do. I am so impressed.

    Record breaking warmth in Harrisburg yesterday (70 degrees). Crazy winter.

      Here in Columbus, too (Actually on Saturday it was 71F; Sunday cooled to a chilly 65F!)

        Crazy. My perennials are starting to push up. All the ferns are still evergreen. The hellebores are just about ready to bloom. Every woody plant has swollen buds. Hopefully no polar vortex in the next few weeks.

          I know. I express my neurotic fears to anyone who will listen. It's been know to drop well below freezing here in early march........

            here in TN, there is a name for it...the dreaded Dogwood winter.

            Didn't that happen recently? That somehow rings a bell.
            Ugh. Weather!

            No, the Dogwood Winter hits when the dogwood trees are just starting to bloom which is usually in mid-April. And, grrr, if the temps suddenly drop below freezing, that puts the kibosh on the big show of blooms. Our Knoxville area has a month long celebration of the dogwood tree that includes art shows and designated neighborhoods that are particularly colorful and certain gardens that are open for public viewing.

    Thank you all for your compliments. The purple arrangements were done for a wedding as my gift to the couple. The outdoor containers are work for clients. I have a business creating containers and small landscape projects. My website has more photos:
