Spring in a Hanging Moss Basket

It's early March and we are seeing some signs of spring here in N.C. 
Daffodils are blooming along with the pansies that have been showing their beauty in many places all winter long. 
So naturally, I couldn't wait a minute longer to have some spring hanging at home on our front door.

It's just a little touch freshness and a subtle hint of what's inside of our little, brick, cape cod.

Last spring the basket looked like this, in it's natural state, on our front door.

 This year I wanted something white!

So, with the magic of  spray paint and some white tulips our basket got a new look...

with some planted vinca, fresh rosemary, a bit of lavender, a burlap bow...

and a real bird's nest with some pearl eggs, too!



Here it is a more distant view....can you see our little "Gucci" peering at me from the window?


Here's a little glimpse at something inside.

Our mantel and fireplace, a centerpiece and bay window re-do is done. So, watch for the posts I'll be posting them soon!

Love, Hugs and Kisses,
JP
and Gucci, too!

Very pretty, Janet. I love last year's, too, with the pansies (one of my favorite Spring flowers to get). I think everyone is having a good turn in their weather this week.
