{Our Fragrant Double Narcissus bloom!}


The weather has been so perfect all week! We walked in our bermudas around the pond at our local hospital where our fitness center is. This was wonderful doing so after we worked out on the machines; instead of using the treadmill.
So uplifting to see the Japanese magnolias in bloom and other trees. In our garden the {Fragrant Double Narcissus Obdam} (< click to see previous blog) bloom again.

Nice spring display on a Le Jacquard Français towel from Gerardmer, France with daffodils. We had a French exchange group in March 2005 and one of the chaperones stayed with us and gave us a present from her region.
The daffodil plate of the Royal Albert Friendhip series you can see in my prievious post: {DAFFODIL OF ROYAL ALBERT FRIENDSHIP SERIES} < click to open.
For a dear friend who had her birthday today I'd baked last night Amaretti hearts and also made chocolate hearts. This is just a sampler...
Today was also Mom & Dad's 62nd wedding anniversary! We did talk to them by phone.

  6. Hi dearest Mariette,

    was für ein traumhaftes Wetter ihr haben müsst! Und dazu passen die sonnigen Farben deines Posts natürlich hervorragend! Sorry, dass ich mich ertst jetzt wieder bei dir melde: Ab Donnerstag-Spätabends war mein Internet "tot" und von Freitag bis heute haben wir uns ein "verlängertes Wochenende" in den Bergen gegönnt (auch sonnig, aber nicht so warm wie bei euch: 4 Grad Celsius - doch immerhin endlich wieder Plusgrade!). Aber jetzt sind wir wieder daheim und mein Mann hat den Internet Fehler entdeckt...
    Alles Liebe - und herzlichen Glückwunsch an deine Eltern zum Hochzeitstag! Hertzlichst Traude

  7. Hi my new friend,
    Thank you so much for your lovely comment. I am a very proud army mom. My little soldier turns 32 today.

    I see you lived in Indonesia. Jeff went to the Defense Language Institute and Indonesian was the language he learned. It is a very small world!

    Have a beautiful day.

    big hugs,
    Barb

    P.S. Your blog is lovely

  9. So meine liebe Mariette, nun muss ich aber ganz dringend und unbedingt bei Dir vorbei schauen. Leider hatte ich fast kaum Zeit hier unterwegs zu sein und somit sind viele liebe Bloggerinnen, wie Du auch, leider zu kurz gekommen!! Bitte entschuldige dafür!!
    Wie ich sehe ist bei Euch aber schon schönster Frühling und diese Narzissensorte sieht einfach fantastisch aus. Duftet sie auch? Ich meine ja!!! Auch das Porzellan passt klasse dazu, vorallem auch mit dem leckeren Gebäck!!
    Liebe Mariette ich hoffe Dir und Pieter geht es gut und Ihr könnt den Frühling richtig geniessen!
    Ich wünsche schonmal einen schönen Wochenbeginn und schicke euch ganz herzliche Grüße
    Marlies

    Much love xxxx

  11. Liebe Mariette, Du hast mich nach dem Schloss gefragt, um welches ich so gerne "Lustwandele". Es steht in Schwerin/Deutschland -Hauptstadt des Bundeslandes Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. Eine 850 Jahre alte Stadt und immer eine Reise wert ;-)
    Ganz liebe Sonntagabendgrüße sendet Dir Carola

  12. Hello Mariette,
    this Narcissus gave me a real spring feeling. Congratulation to your parents!
    Greetings, Johanna

  13. Dear Mariette,

    the daffodils looks absolutely beautiful, I love their double look and the bright yellow-white. We have many daffodils in our small garden too but they are not ready at this time. Maybe in 3 od 4 weeks I can show them.
    I love porcelain and your plates are very sweet and so much spring.
    Today it is rainy and cold and dark - I want to have better weather tomorrow.

    Have a nice week,
    Tanja

  16. Nou, loop ik nog niet rond in de bermuda brrr. Maar ik heb vandaag na het werk wel lekker in de zon gezeten met vest aan;-)
    De mooie foto's doen mij gelijk aan pasen denken met de narcissen en het mooie servies.

    Zonnige groetjes vanuit het hoge noorden,
    Sandy
