Happy weekend

Spring flowers are blooming here, so today I brought a little bunch of sweetness into the house.
The fragrance of the Hyacinths is heavenly and I wish you could smell them.

A multitude of small delights constitutes happiness
~ C. Baudelaire

 I am looking forward to coming to visit your blogs soon to see what you are up to. Many thanks for the visits to my little place.
Also for the kindness with the words you left me, when I had to  go and see the Dentist. I appreciated each and every one - all was good and now I will go back in a couple of weeks to have the crown put in place.

Best wishes to one and all, for a wonderful weekend

  8. Your photos are lovely and I could smell the flowers from here.
    I do hope your tooth is settling down.

  9. Hello sweet Carolyn,

    So glad your trip to the visit went well!!

    I hope you have a beautiful weekend! Our deck in our backyard is done and I LOVE it so now I will enjoy it so much more but not next week as it's supposed to be in the 100's YUCK!!!



    Are you better my dear? Thank God you seem to be in good spirits and do come to visit when you get a chance!

    I know how you feel about fragrance or any other beautiful thing; we want others to experience the same moment that we are able to experience. I have lavender scent wafting through my home currently, for I have a bunch of lavender flowers that just seem to keep giving off their scent.

    ENJOY THE DAY! Anita

  11. Dear Carolyn,
    I`m still waiting for my crown to arrive.... hope it will not be too long ! I`m glad that your visit was not too bad, and that you are now in a wait possition like me :-)
    So wonderful that you already have spring flowers, I thought it would only be in a month or so ?
    Hugs ,Dorthe

  12. Have a wonderful weekend love love

  13. I love the scent of hyacinths too Carolyn. I don't think that there are too many flowers out there that can fill a room with it's sweet smell like they can.

    I have a funny story about them. One time when I was working at the plant nursery several years ago, we got a shipment of hyacinth bulbs and I was sorting them and putting them into their bins when I started to itch incessantly. I didn't know that they were poisonous and would cause such discomfort. Now I am always sure to put my gloves on before touching them.
    I am happy to hear that the trip to the dentist went okay.
    hugs from here...

  14. Dearest Carolyn,

    The good thing was that Francesca bear did give you some joy, to divert your thoughts from the dentist. Enjoy your hyacinths, they are heavenly, one of the most fragrant of bulb flowers.
    Happy weekend to you.

  15. Hi Carolyn,

    Thanks so much for stopping by and for the sweet comment.

    Oh it's too bad we don't have smell-a-vision in order to get the scent of those beautiful flowers.

    Glad to hear that the dentist went well and that you'll be "crowned" soon. :)

    Have a lovely rest of the weekend!

  16. Beautiful flowers Carolyn...
    I am happy to hear you are almost finished with the dentist..
    Thank you so much for coming over to visit me and leaving such a kind note.. I always enjoy your visits.
    Wishing you a wonderful Sunday...

  17. Dear Carolyn
    Your spring flowers are so sweet. We are in the middle of the summer but it is cold.

  23. Hello my dearest Carolyn, it's good to hear that there are already springflowers blooming in NZ. (Are they just blooming in the house or outdoors, too?) You show us pretty nostalgic photos! I'm happy that everything went well at the dentist. Please cross your fingers (tomorrow is MY "dentist's-day"...)
    Very warm summer-hugs from Austria,

  24. Carolyn,
    Your Hyacinths are so pretty. I want to thank you for always coming over and leaving such nice comments. I smile when I see yours, as they are so heartwarming. Have a nice weekend, my sweet friend.

  37. We have to be brave...even enough to go to the dentist. Haahahaha. See you soon.

  38. Hello Carolyn,
    I have been so out of touch, I did not know you had to go to the dreaded dentist. I'm so sorry you had to go though that.I will pray for your next visit coming up.
    On a lighter note.I sure did love this post.The tin is to fab.My daughter and I are always looking for tins.I wish I could grow hyicints.They just don't do well here.
    May God Bless ,
    Marie Antionette
