Herbs and Veggies for My Container Garden

We will have to enjoy them in the house on my kitchen table for a few weeks, as it is too cold in Wisconsin to put them outside.

There are lots of herbs and a few vegetable plants. I placed them in a plastic container to make it easy to move off the table, if needed.  I added a little soil on the bottom of each one to make their temporary home comfy!

I love the strawberry blossoms.
  I had fun taking some close ups!

Close up of Cilantro.

This is a Culantro herb and is a stronger version of Cilantro.

And a close up of a tomato blossom.
I enjoyed giving my new plants a sunny new home today.  I really enjoyed taking some up close photos too!  It was my Minutes for Me!

Apple Blossoms in Wisconsin

The apple blossoms are a sure sign of spring in Wisconsin.

We have three little apple trees.  They are just starting to blossom.  We worried that the frost may get them, but they look pretty good.
 The little path leads to my quilt shop on the lower level of our home.
This is amazing to see dandelions in April, in Wisconsin.

Spring has sprung in Wisconsin!
I am taking time on Easter weekend to enjoy the colors around me and of course taking time to enjoy my family. 
Happy Easter!

A Quilter with a Green Thumb - Tulips

We have a bouquet of tulips for our kitchen table. They weren't quite open when we cut them and now they are in full bloom!

I placed them next to the shamrock plant.

I thought there was a tag on the shamrock plant, but I guess not, so I can't tell you it's name.
Anyone know what it is? Please leave me a comment or email me.  Thanks!
The little white flowers are beautiful.  They are about the size of a quarter.

The leaves of course look like shamrocks.

I moved the tulips over to take a photo next to my Aloe and Violet plants.

I love the backdrop of the other plants -- makes the red and the pink of the tulips more vibrant.

We are really enjoying this early spring in Wisconsin.  Wish we could count on it staying warm and not freezing at night.  I am going to just keep everything inside til it is safe not to freeze.
Take time to enjoy the colors around you -  inside or outside!
