Peach tree Blossoms in my Kitchen


I had a Happy Easter and I hope that you all did as well. We had some family come visit us, the weather was perfect, we ate delicious food and my boys enjoyed a few fun egg hunts, as well as coloring eggs, candy and all that fun Easter stuff. 



So last week Jake and I did a little yard work, I pulled weeds while he trimmed up the Peach tree.  I noticed he was tossing away a bunch of branches, so I grabbed me one and brought it in and placed it in a pitcher of water. (Well actually it's in a jar full of rocks and water and then placed inside a pitcher, so that it wouldn't tip over).

The Branch just had some small pink buds on it.  So it's been fun watching it bloom over the last couple of days.
It really looked pretty for Easter.

 And then I just took a few pictures of my Kitchen. Not the greatest of pictures,  it's tricky shooting in front of a bright window.  I'm slowly learning more and more about photography,  but I've still got a lot to learn. Also, I'm still looking for a good picnik replacement,  I have found a few ok ones but they all seem really slow and of course, not as great as picnik.  I'm just going to ride Picnik out until the very last day and then figure it out from there. How about you all?

Have a great day,
Thanks for stopping by,
Emily

  2. Hi Emily - I'm Julie. I've never used Picnik - still a rookie blogger but I want to do a collage for my blogs before they close it. Claudia has been playing with PicMonkey and it might be the solution you seek http://www.mockingbirdhillcottage.com/2012/03/bed-picmonkey-and-bronson-pinchot.html

    I love your peach blossom branch. I cut a few branches from my magnolia a couple of weeks ago. I wanted to "force". The internet said to put them in a dark place in water and when the pink of the bud begins to show, bring them out for display. That sounded silly to me so they sat in a vase for a few days - nothing happened - I gave up and put them in the green waste bin. A few days later, I went to put something else in and lo and behold, my magnolia was flowering!! I guess the internet didn't lie. I promptly put them back in water and had lovely flowers for a couple of weeks.

  5. I love your blog, your home is lovely, and happy.

    I wanted to ask you, where did you get your tall glass jars? are they pickle jars? and if so, did you paint the lids? they just look so homey, I love it.
    thanks.
