  1. I've seen that coffee creamer around, and everyone swears that it is good. And yet, when I think about putting raw eggs into my coffee, I shudder somewhere deep in my soul.

    1. Ha! I thought the same thing when I first saw the recipe. I just tell myself that once they hit the hot coffee they cook! Yes, that does it!

  6. They are also called muscari. I never saw them until we got married and the florist snuck a few into the arrangements and then we moved to the Northwest where they grew wild on the hill behind our house. I love them and was thrilled to be back in a place with enough of a chill to grow them this year..ours are starting to make an appearance right now, too. They are easy to also force and grow inside in little containers.

    Isn't it nice to see such lovely signs of spring popping up. The DC cherry bossoms have been delayed this year but are finally making their famous appearance.

    Happy Spring!

    1. Oh, they would be so pretty in an arrangement. Good to know they keep and can be forced. Would love to have some inside!
      I hope you take some pics of those blossoms! That would be a sight to see!

  7. It's the root children! That was a very favorite book around here with each kid.

    I planted grape hyacinths in our backyard years ago, and they come back every year. I love their color so much.

    Thank you for linking to my post, Dawn. So glad that it's helpful!

      One thing that is fun about moving into a new house is figuring out all of the surprises that pop up in spring!
