Sunny Easter Thoughts

I do believe this is our last party at Sunlit Sunday- I think we all hate to see it end don't we?
I want to thank our host Karen for these parties!

We've had a real mixed bag of weather this week.  I had a birthday on Tuesday and the sun was shining like crazy which I appreciated.  We went for a drive up to Petoskey and visited some little shops that I like and had a nice dinner at a restaurant.  The next day it was bitter and snowing which was repeated a couple of times more through the week.  Last night it went down to 4 degrees!  Enough!!

I found the bunny and eggs at one of those stores back in February when we had also visited Petoskey.  
I combined them on this tiered cake stand for a centerpiece.

As you can see in the aerial view my Christmas Cactus is blooming up a storm….and some remnants of snow outside.

This plant starts out with pink buds and they end up almost coral in color when the flowers open up. 

Here is the plant when I got it in November 2011.  I didn't realize how much it had grown!

I'm glad to share a little bit of my sunshine and happiness with you all and I look forward to seeing you again next year!
I'll be out in the gardens as soon as weather permits! I hope you'll visit me through the summer too!

  3. Liz, Your pictures are so nice. Happy Belated Birthday to you. Glad you got out for a nice dinner. I am so
    ready fro some warmer days. I do not want us to jump right into hot weather by any means. Just some nice 50's and 60's
    Hope you are having a great weekend, xoxo,Susie

  4. Lovely Easter centerpiece !
    Hope your real spring arrives soon, the garden is luring.

  5. Your cactus did grow quite a bit. It's beautiful. At least this crazy cold weather did something good. I hope you have much warmer weather soon.

  6. Liz, what a darling, little bunny, nestled atop spring greenery and adorable Easter eggs! The sun is surely shining on your Easter centerpiece, awaiting the light of the Easter's celebration.

    Happy Spring!

  8. Belated birthday greetings. love the bunny and what a great idea to put him on the tiered plates

  9. I like your Bunny centerpiece, I haven´t any Easter decoration out yet, maybe good day to do it. I have enjoyed to visit you during the Sunlit Sunday and will so continue to do it. Yes it´s important to remember why we celebrate Easter. Take care Jaana

  10. The bunny looks cross at you taking his photo. Our Chrictmas cacti came out ages ago yours must have a different flowering season. Thanks for visiting my blog

  11. What a beatuy, your cactus (there are Christmas and Easter cacti, I think, your is the second one)!
    And your pictures are so lightful and springlike with the lovely decoration (the greatest is the white cross).
    Yeah, I will visit you again, during the summertime sit with you in your garden...

  12. I can't believe Easter is with us already and I really do need to start preparing this week. Too much going on at work as it is Holy Week so my home preparation goes to the wayside. I do love the Easter Cacti, we have one at work and it looks as though it will be a little late this year. x

  13. Hello. Your centerpiece is so lovely. And your cactus has really grown. The blooms are beautiful. Sending you lots of warm sun from California.

  14. Oh I love your bunny centerpiece....

  15. Hi Liz, sounds like you enjoyed a nice birthday even with the snow and cold. Love your kitchen shot, your beautiful centerpiece and the gorgeous view of your cactus plant. It is blooming so pretty for you. I know your gardens will be a great show in the months to follow.
    Wishing you a nice Easter week.
    Hugs, CM

  16. Lovely, cheerful photos! Your Easter centrepiece is really beautiful, and I like the last photo very much as well. Happy Easter! Hugs... and see you soon!

  17. What a beautiful Easter centrepiece and your Christmas cactus is splendid - it's amazing how it's grown.
    Your china cross is so beautiful Liz.
    Wishing you a very Happy Easter!

  18. Happy Belated Birthday to you, Liz! Using the stand for your Easter centrepiece was a great idea. As for your Christmas cactus, it certainly is fully loaded with blooms!

    Happy Easter to you!
