Blooming Flowers At My House

Good afternoon! Today is a grey day in Ohio, but these little flowers brighten my day. I didn't plant these, Tom's grandma lived here and she planted them. We've lived here for years and when these sweet little flowers bloom spring is very near. They get snowed on some years but, they keep blooming.
I love these little yellow flowers. A sweet lady in my garden club gave me them to me. She has since passed away, when they bloom I think of her. She was in her 90's and her husband lived to be over 100!! They had beautiful flower beds. They loved daylilies and every year they would count the blooms. Maybe that kept them sharp for such a long time.
I wanted to share a rug that I made for myself. This rug is a design by Need'l Love Threads,it's a penny rug. This was the second rug I hooked. It's huge it is about 2.5' x 3'. So I do have a few rugs that I haven't sold. Until next time... Julie


  1. Love seeing the first crocus!!!! Beautiful! Your rug is beautiful!

  2. It's wonderful to see the spring flowers blooming.... and I love the stories behind your's...

  6. The crocus are so sweet! The little yellow flowers are winter aconite.
    Love the rug! So glad you've kept a couple for yourself!
    Happy spring!!!
    Hugs :)

    1. Thanks Lauren!! Didn't know the name of those.

  7. Oh Lauren Thanks for sharing the Crocus...aren't they just the prettiest little flowers.. All our Daffidils are popping up here...not sure what is popping up at my house in Port Clinton...Peg doesn't have any crocus here wish she did, I just may have to buy some and plant them...
    I know our Ohio weather has invited the spring flowers to start popping out but I do worry a big old freeze will come along and spoil them... I'm praying it doesn't and we can all enjoy the spring flowers...

    Love your rug!!

    Have a Great Weekend!
