End of Spring

We had a very cool spring here in Michigan and everything is blooming a little later than usual.
I lined the walkway to our front door with these Shepard's hooks and spring flowers for a baby shower I hosted. 

Could anything be more sweet that this picture?  I don't know who the children are but I was sitting down at the dam "people watching" when I snapped this one.  I was nervous because I didn't see any parents near these two sweet little kids and the area where they were standing was less than a hundred feed from the dam.

This is an old picture from my front door.  I've changed the door color to black now and the urns are filled with purple pansies but I still love this shot.

So....spring is on the way out and summer will hopefully be here in it's full glory very soon, happy Monday.

The porch is beautiful. I love the arrangement on the door. Soooo beautiful. I bet that shower was awesome. What a beautiful welcome the guest received walking up. Did I say beautiful often enough? But it is!
Have a great week. I am headed to Tennessee and Illinois for a couple of weeks visiting daughters.

I agree with Savannah Granny that it's such a welcoming front porch. I love the flowers on your door. I need to jazz mine up a bit, I think.

I would have been nervous for those two children, too, and I agree the picture is precious.

Hi Char, I love the idea of the white shepherds hooks holding vases of flowers! So sweet! I would also love a closer look at what's on your front door. Beautiful post.
