Heart & Home ~ Valentine's Day


Mid- winter now and, besides a couple brief snows, the garden is quiet. Time to look to a wonderful winter blooming shrub: Mahonia Japonica, for adding a bit of color to the landscape and outside decor. Since Valentine's Day is in a month, I decided to change up a few outdoor displays today. Out came the front door wreath with its golden bumble bee and sweet pink roses on a grapevine heart and a few birdhouses with just the right heart accents.
A little heart for a sweet Valentine's Day touch!
