An intimate Spring Setting at the Edge of the Woods ....

It seemed just the kind of day to be out in the shade to enjoy the spring weather and a little refreshment.......

I cut a few sprigs of woodland greenery, a few flowers and took this opportunity to use the rabbit picks that I have had unused for years. I remember getting them at JoAnns after Easter at 70% off.  They are beautiful metallic colors.

I moved the little garden table to the shade just at the edge of a stand of trees.  I had been wanting to use this spring-looking tablecloth I got a GW.  It was a great bargain.  It is circled with flowers, ducks and rabbits. Looks like this might be its first use.

I gathered together my rabbit plates and eggcups, all from Hallmark.  I have a friend who likes to shop at Hallmark for gifts.  These came from her.

I had found these beautiful, large cookies at Big Lots.  They came individually, tightly sealed in plastic and also in a see-through bag and tied with a ribbon.

Still wrapped but, isn't it pretty!

A pretty, lacey napkin always seems to fit a spring setting.

The other color plate (I also have a yellow and a blue one).  The cookies are large and came in three different designs - $1 each

A small glass of ice cold water with a rosemary/lemon spear.  Slice the lemon thin and fold it so you can put the rosemary through two folds. This is so refreshing!  Why don't I think to have it more often! Especially since I have rosemary year round.

Someone is thinking - those rabbits shouldn't all be headed in the same direction.  But, their ribbon bows are all on this side.

I love this little spot with the table all fancied up! The birds were singing, the rabbits playing and a big kite (bird) was soaring overhead.  They are so graceful and occasionally come swooping down pretty low.

                           A nice relaxing afternoon.  Oh, by the way, the big cookies are yummy!
