Are you as excited to celebrate spring as I am?



The weather here has been so beautiful lately, we are {finally} outside




in the morning with our coffee and at lunch time for a quick salad.



Antique French Watering Can



The garden is starting to come back to life,



and every time a flower lifts its pretty head



and says “hello! I’m here!” it makes me so happy.



Antique Hand Woven Splint Basket










If you came here via Pam, Mary or Shirley, I hope you will enjoy your visit.



And please sign up to receive my posts in your email,



the little box is on the top right corner.  : )



I’d love to keep in touch!





For this little “drinks” table setting in the garden



I layered a small circular table with an antique French sheet



and gathered some of my favorite antique French pieces for the rest.




What could be better for a spring or Easter table?




Country Gardener Towels


The flowers are simply arranged in an antique French enamelware pitcher.



They are all my spring favorites:



tulips, freesia, wax flowers and statice.


Yours too?



Antique Hand Painted French Enameled Pitcher




Keeping the flowers all to one color family always works.









The tulips are such a beautiful color, aren’t they?



And those freesia smell heavenly.






Using French Country antiques in the garden



is always a pretty idea.



Antique Old Paris Compote




Our Country Gardener Tea Towels {using as napkins!} with their charming design



of rabbits, wheel barrows, watering cans, cabbages



and seedlings add an amusing touch.







This arrangement is one everyone can do.



I cut almost all the flowers the same length



and let the tulips go where they wanted.



{not that there is a choice!}






I hope that as you are planning your family’s Easter



you will pick up a little bundle or two of fresh flowers



and arrange them to your liking



flowers make everything more beautiful!

  1. It is always a treat to visit you in your beautiful French Spring garden. I am always in awe of the beautiful containers that you use for your floral creations and the exquisite antique accents on the table and in the garden. You truly have captured both the French and California vibe of Easter/Spring in the garden. I am enjoying your sunshine too…it’s been a bit dreary here to say the least. Now I so love the flowers, but must say I LOVE the pitcher! I spy a “coming attraction” …. Happy Monday Lidy…my favorite Mondays are sharing it with my wonderful Monday Morning Blooms friends!

  2. Garden love Lidy! What could be better than celebrating the beautiful spring weather and Easter in your garden?! Such a beautiful bouquet of blooms in your swoon-worthy antique French enamelware pitcher! I’m loving your sweet Country Gardener Kitchen Tea Towels too…I wish the Easter bunny would bring me one! 🙂 As always it’s a treat to start my day with my flower friends. Thank you for the beauty this morning. <3

    I throughly enjoy the Monday morning flower ladies and all of the ideas I gather from each. Your use of the the antique linen sheet for the tablecloth caught my eye. To be outside in the garden with the very best you have to offer is like saying thank you to “Our Maker” for bringing us us through a long Winter. Freesia Is among my favorite but here in Colorado it never smells as heavenly because of the lack of humidity her in Colorado. Thank you for sharing.

  4. Lidy, how I love the antique hand-painted French enamelware pitcher with your beautiful blooms! Your garden is so perfect for a small table full of lovelies. I can just imagine sitting in the warm sunshine, in your pretty garden, and sharing conversation with you, how wonderful that would be. It is a gorgeous day here after a stormy start to Palm Sunday. It is my pleasure to share Monday Morning Blooms with my friends. Wishing you blessings during this most Holy Week!

  5. Once again I admire your casual, yet elegant style Lidy! Gorgeous combo of blooms and I love them paired with a simple bowl of pastel eggs…what a divine spot to sit and enjoy, surrounded by your beautiful garden! Happy Easter Lidy~

  6. Thank you Pam, I love sharing our Monday Morning Blooms with you too! Wishing you a blessed Holy Week, friend. xo Lidy

  8. You are so kind to say that Cindy. The flowers do all the work!

  9. Lidy, Charming post! I love your antique French hand painted enamel pitcher full of pretty spring flowers. I do think your analogous color scheme is quite pleasing. I love your flower choices also.
    Happy Easter, Lidy. He is Risen indeed!
