    Boy – I’m ready for Spring – but I think the first Spring day could be a month off. 🙂

  2. Oh my word, that was awesome. You just rock!

    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! 🙂

  4. The dancing liberty girl has her crown upsidedown.
    anyway, Happy Spring !

  5. 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

  6. 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

    Great post – love the cake photo!

  8. 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!!

    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….

    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…

    Great shots. Glad you had the baby vampire in there 😉

  12. Great post and photos. Your picture of the nursery says it all for us! The cake of molten fruits is rather special too 😀

  13. 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?

    Please accept the award! You deserve! … Thanks to Shaun friend!

    That baby is the sweetest thing!! Such cuteness 😀

  17. 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.

    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!
