A few random shots from my week. Happy Spring ya’ll! ♥
Boy – I’m ready for Spring – but I think the first Spring day could be a month off. 🙂
I know…..here comes winter…..
Oh my word, that was awesome. You just rock!
You make me LOL! Hope your first day of spring was a goodie! ♥
Well, you know that I of course LOVE this post, and I am not biased in the least! Nope,not at all.
I am so ready for Spring! Bring it on! 🙂
LOL! And you know that’s why I stopped, turned around in the parking lot…and took this! TRULY! Thanks for being in Oklahoma today, Bonnie! ♥
Yay!! I love that I was ‘there’ with you…see, one way or another! A road trip is meant to be, at some point! ♥
Are you stalking me, Bonnie?!?!? lol!
One of these days…..one of these days…. 😉
Who me?? Stalking you?? Never! Well, ok, maybe a little… 🙂
😉 It would be too boring. Let’s stalk my sister!
Ok! Much more fun to stalk someone together!!
More fun….more trouble….hope we get the same jail cell!
The dancing liberty girl has her crown upsidedown.
anyway, Happy Spring !
What attention to detail! I will tell her next time I drive by! 😉 Hope your day’s a great one 🙂
I think everyone is anxious for the weather to warm up (in the northern hemisphere, that is). It has been such a long winter. Love your inspiring spring photos.
Well….I have no room to complain…our winter has been so mild. BUT….we had a couple of days of warmth last week and I certainly enjoyed working in those flowerbeds! Spring Fever for sure! Thanks for reading. I appreciate you! ♥ paula
Ha! Love this quote: Behold, my friends, the spring is come; the earth has gladly received the embraces of the sun, and we shall soon see the results of their love! Sitting Bull
😉 Me Too!
Great post – love the cake photo!
I wanted to help her in the worst way! 😉
Just wonderful!! The first cake is so precious, Winnie-the-Pooh produces the best lines for quotes, and the Easter Grass is lovely. Queen Anne’s Lace is regarded as an allergy weed here, but I love it.
I drove home from my mother’s today in a blinding snow squall. I hope your weather gets over here soon!!
We have have a chance of sleet/snow predicted for here in the a.m. But this too shall pass!
“The first day of spring is one thing, and the first spring day is another. The difference between them is sometimes as great as a month. Henry Van Dyke”
This seems to be true for so many of you ‘Northern Hemisphereans’. Down here in Australia it is currently Autumn/Fall however, I will be really happy when it happens; we are experiencing a very long Summer in most areas….
OH how I love Fall! I hope you enjoy every moment! ♥
As I don my jacket to keep me warm in the mornings… yes spring has sprung away from us and the autumn haze has gathered in the morning…
And before we know it….we will be trading places. But as for now….we are still wearing jackets, too! (most days!)
Great shots. Glad you had the baby vampire in there 😉
Great post and photos. Your picture of the nursery says it all for us! The cake of molten fruits is rather special too 😀
I can’t wait to start planting! Have a great “rest” of the week ~ 🙂
Yes, we saw a great quote – some think of their garden as a retreat, I think of mine as an attack!
Oh I like that!! 😉
love the photos and oh I too am anxiously awaiting throwing open windows, dusting out the bunnies under the beds, shaking off the winter blahs and moving into lovely lilac aromas!!!
This has been the coldest spring I can remember. It’s still below freezing this morning. Yikes. I washed off the patio furniture and the water froze in little icicles. Does this mean a cool summer ahead?
Ouch! Well no icicles here yet….but possilby this weekend. Cool summer? I’ve never seen one! 😉
Please accept the award! You deserve! … Thanks to Shaun friend!

Thanks for thinking of me ♥ paula
That baby is the sweetest thing!! Such cuteness 😀
Isn’t she a doll. She was falling asleep eating her cake….;)
You have more images of spring in your neck of the woods than we do down here. It is still mostly dead except for the Bradford Pears. I do have a lot of “Easter Grass.” What a great name for it. I always get mad at Clint when he mows it down before egg hunt day. It is a perfect place to hide eggs.
The grands birthday cake looked very – uh, messy! Did that deep red stain his little fingers and mouth? What a doll; he looked like he was having the time of his life.
I want to get out an find spring here, but its turned off cold and miserable here and I’m sick for the first time in over two years!
Its supposed to freeze this weekend, I hope my redbud tree survives.
Redbuds are supposed to be the smartest of the trees. We’ll see! This little one is a friend’s doll baby. She had lots of fun, but was ready for a nap by cake time!
As for the Easter Grass……we pretreated the yard so don’t have any…but there is plenty to be had for photos! 🙂 It always reminds me of my little boys ♥
We don’t pretreat our 5 acres so we have lots! you are welcome to some.
lol! well thanks! What a great hunt that could be!
I hope it is nice enough for a hunt this Easter, we definitely have lots of “Easter Flowers” I had planned to give them one cutting before Easter, but then I got really sick. Now I’m hoping I get my house clean before Sunday. Its not looking to good.
No need to clean house….it’ll just get messed up with all the foot traffic. A thought!
I think you are right, but I will have to give the front bath a bit of attention so as not to gross out my family and friends.
I love this! great post,reminds me I need to get to the nursery so I can get the plants in the ground so the sun can fry them. Here in AZ I already have a tan, it’s in the 80’s!
Oh 80’s……we had ONE 80’s day last week and it was awesome. 40’s and sleet today….but before long I’ll be fussing because of the heat. Enjoy!!!!
My bed of wildflowers are blooming, my pots by the front porch are filled with petunias, and I’m heading out to enjoy the 75 deg. morning. My very favorite time of year here in AZ. However, I do find the Haboobs and Monsoon season pretty exciting (from inside the house).
Your photos were beautiful, as usual. Thanks Paula.
It’s almost tulip season here. Enjoy those perfect temps and flowers!! Still chilly here! ♥ to you, Delores!
umm…..stalk your sister…..you know she moved and left no forwarding address??? nice pics….need some sunshine to go with all this rain now 🙂
The sun’ll come out tomorrow….well…maybe the day after?!?! BTW….I can find you. I always find you…. 😉
First rain of the autumn season over here in Australia 🙂
Oh autumn…..a bit jealous….;)
