Sand Cherry

We don't celebrate Easter in any formal way in our house. Honesty I prefer to celebrate the arrival of spring and most years I try to bring a branch of some kind inside and then we love to dye eggs and hang them on said branch. Well this year I snagged this lovely off my neighbors sand cherry that has a big split down the side. This part was on the ground almost separated from the main branch but I noticed it had a few buds on it  so I brought it in and after only a week or so it turned into this- ready for some bee's.
Hope you had a nice weekend and are ready to start a new week! 


  1. It's so beautiful Kristen!

  2. What a beautiful way to celebrate the arrival of Spring,the shadow on the wall means the sun is out :) x

  3. Everything is lovely about these photos,Kristen! Is there a story that goes along with the charming little "chest?"

  4. Thank you :)
    Renilde yes the sun has been out- in fact I hate to say it but we could use some rain...
    Gloria the box was my Grandmother's sewing box...but now I keep odds and ends in it :)

  5. Dear Kristen,
    same to us, we don't celebrate Easter but arriving of spring.
    What a wonderful branch... the blossoms! And those colourful eggs. Those pebbles in the vase seems to take their shape up.

    Lovely green on the wall, its my favorite.

    Love, Ariane.
