Spring is here, and I've been slow at Spring decorating .
Hare E. Rabbit...you might remember him from last year...
Click here to see his "debut"...arrived with a bit of an attitude.
And, yesterday, he gave me the "rabbit eye", because my Spring decorating isn't meeting his expectations.
Between you and me, I think he's been watching P. Allen Smith's videos again.
P. Allen Smith is one of his favorite garden designers...mine, too.
Trying to get me inspired, Hare E. said he wanted to do a "rustic and refined" vignette.
OK, I'm supposed to to the "rustic", and he will do the "refined"!
I set about gathering things for the vignette...rustic wheelbarrow, and a little distressed bench...
...a bee skep, a few flower pots...
...and Napa cabbage from the garden center.
That's a special treat for Hare E. and ...
...his country cousins, who stopped by.
They thoughtfully, brought a pot of carrots.
You're probably wondering about the "refined" part. Well...
...Hare E. donned his brown satin bow tie, and filled his basket with white tulips and little lavender and yellow flowers...very refined.
He added his favorite cabbages plates, a pot of grape hyacinths from the garden, and monogrammed napkins.
The "R" is for Rabbit, of course. :)
Shhh...don't tell him, but while he wasn't looking, I slipped in a bowl of Easter eggs.
I think Hare E. is happy now. I really did appreciate his "help".
Hope Spring has come to your garden...or maybe your kitchen table.
