Scavenger Hunt Sunday

I'm trying something new for this post and am posting from my phone. All of these pictures are from my phone as well, hence the not as good quality. However, some of my favorites are what's captured on here. So here you are. Blessings to you on this beautiful day!

1. Neglected 
Stinging Nettle is is full bloom now! This herb has many health benefits, but can often be overlooked and neglected because of the sting it gives when touched. Always use gloves with this one! 

2. Signs of Spring 
I always say when these gorgeous flowers, along with the lovely yellow ones beside this bush, come out then Spring has officially arrived. And I just spotted my first sighting of these this week. I'm happy. 

3. Last Thing You Bought
I really don't know what the last thing I bought was, but this is the last thing I made; gluten-free, no-knead sandwich bread. Be on the lookout for a recipe post soon! 

4. Shadow 
I think it's actually reflections in the glass, but for the sake of this prompt and having nothing else I'm calling them shadows. :) I ran across these adorable little vases in a glass shop last week. Aren't these so perfect for those first spring flowers, especially if you have a toddler around? 

5. Four Things 
How about this for a twist to the prompt: 
1. I missed Africa and cooking over a fire. (Yes, I just said I missed cooking the hard way)
2. We had a gorgeous few days.
3. So my sisters and I sat outside and cooked like we did in Africa.
4. It was awesome and I can't wait to do it again soon! 


  1. Cheery offerings, but I really am liking the shadow shot most of all!

  2. Stinging Nettles, Ouch! I've gotten into them before, not so much fun.
    The Flowering Quince is beautiful.
    Oh those little vase are darling.
    Your cooking excursion sounded fun.

  3. I learned to cook like that in Korea. I think it's fun more because it's a novelty for us. Beautiful spring flowers. Love the bright color. Diane #15

  4. Those vases are so cute! Looks like you had a great meal!
