Decorating for Spring

Spring has come to Arizona. Over the last two weeks we have had temperatures in the high 80s to the low 60s. It may take until next month to make up it's mind, and then it will just stay hot. The fragrance from the blooming orange blossom fills the backyard. The garden centers are full of weekend gardeners taking advantage of the beautiful weather.

In honor of spring I have exchanged the Shiny Brite ornaments in the terrarium for eggs .
Tucson Sister used to be Utah Sister. While living in Sutherland Utah, she raised chickens that laid wonderful brown, tan, blue and light green eggs.
I was lucky enough to have her hollow out the eggs (which she scrambled and made into breakfast burritos) and bring them to me.
So the eggs are my official Spring decorations.

I do LOVE your spring decor. Those eggs look beautiful...don't you just love spring?!

And the orange blossoms do smell so delicious. Now if only it could stay spring instead of climb into the triple digits!
