It's March! Go Green.

 It's the start of the month of March, so it is time to go green at the Acorn Cottage. I got my festive St. Patrick's Day decor put up over the weekend and am ready to usher in March. It has felt like spring here for a solid week, and I am loving it! The snapdragons are also loving this time of year.



The leprechaun doorhanger from Tom Tom and Company is a favorite of mine and is the perfect welcome to guests in the month of March.





Corrugated shamrocks are also spread throughout the front yard.




Shamrocks & Leprechauns, y'all!

Snapdragons are Poppin'

 The snapdragons in the front garden were planted way back in November of last year, and they are still putting on a show. Green and white is always right says James Farmer, and I agree. The white flowers make for such a coolling effect at any time of year.









Thanks again to Perino's Nursery for offering such a healthy selection of annuals from season to season.

The snapdragons really have put on a spectacular show.

Snaps are Poppin', y'all!

Mardi Gras 2024 {I Bought My Own Flowers}

 I love fresh flowers, and the shades of the Mardi Gras season. Again this year, I headed to my local florist, Mitch's Flowers on Magazine Street for Carnival-spirited designs. Monique and her team hit it out of the park once again. Blooms in shades of purple, green, and gold are ready to greet our many guests this Carnival season.
