Early Sunday morning I strolled through our desert garden to pick a rose to bring inside.
I love walking up that little rock path enjoying the lantana along the way.
A sweet visitor stops by to say hello.
As I decide which rose to pick Mr. Quail watches in earnest.
And a bird splashes in the cool water.
But there it is… my Montezuma Rose!
Inside I decide to place my rose in an old vintage silver dish. It sits perfectly on the table.
It’s as perfect as a painting!
I am trying to keep the same color pallet in the kitchen.
When we don’t use the “good” napkins …the small fence post basket holds our everyday napkins.
You can see the napkins tucked behind the jelly jar that holds the blush flower.
Let’s head outside to enjoy a few cocktails. I still have some peeps left so we can enjoy peeptinis! Recipe follows!
1 part Whipped Cream vodka
1 part Pineapple Vodka
Add as much pineapple juice that you wish.
Add a splash of half and half.
Rim your martini glasses with colored sugar. Add a peep!
I am so glad you could come for a spring visit! I enjoyed your company! Please come again!

Glad you enjoyed the spring decor. Can’t wait to see your yard in all it’s splendor!
So lovely. I have enjoyed spending time with you. I felt as if I were walking amongst the lantana and picking the rose to put under the cloche. Just so lovely.

Mr. Quail looks very dapper and well coiffed with that nicely combed plume above his eye!
We love our quail. They march like soldiers when they are on top of our wall. With that plume held high.
They can have lots and lots of babies which trot right behind their march!
Thanks for stopping in!
Oh, what a beautiful life it is, Nance.
Thank you for stopping by! I am so glad you got to see our back yard. We love it! Happy Spring to you!

I knew you were kidding… but seriously… when you both come out… please let me know. Spring is the best for photography op’s!
I know 🙁 Scheduling is such a beast now; stuff going on I wish that wasn’t but such is life.
Just beautiful. You are so creative

My neighbor keeps telling me that winter does not want to end. Hang in there… “Sprinter” is all most over! Warmth is coming….!
Thank you so much for stopping by! I truly appreciate it!
Beautiful rose and beautiful back yard! I had a Quail jump up on the ledge of my office window last week. So cute…can’t wait to see them parade their babies around!! It is definitely springtime in the desert with all of the Palo verde trees in bloom…great post, Nancy!
Thanks for your kind words!
The quail are always something to see. We sure do love them.
The Palo Verdes are blooming and it makes the desert phenomenal!
