Hello Spring!

The first week-end of spring
was interesting weather wise

Saturday we had gorgeous temperatures
14 C here on the east coast

I was ready for it

Friday night on my way home
I stopped and picked up some tulips

I have a big bouquet on the table
and another smaller one in the bedroom

then a single stem
in the kitchen

they make me smile

On Saturday I scooped up Molly
and headed to the dog park

the freedom
she ran and ran
and played

when we got home
I ventured around the yard

in my new boots
I think they are cute

I found this little gem

my tulips peeking out of the ground

the sedum is greening up

the lilies are getting in on the action

Now I will have to wait a bit
and get all that old stuff cleared away
so the buds can breath in
the spring air

~*~*~*~*~


I saw these and needed to scoop them up

I am usually not a pastel loving girl
but I could not let these pass me by

Sunday was cooler
but still a nice day
we took a drive down to the cottage

but that is a while other post
so more on that later



for now we will enjoy the tulips

and oops
I almost forgot

you must head over to
Farmgirl Paints

she is hosting a giveaway
and you are not going to
want to miss this one.

Hope you had a wonderful week-end!

It HAS felt like spring for a couple of weeks here now, then both Saturday and Sunday we woke up to a small splattering of snow on the ground. ??! Very strange. Our tulips here are very confused!
(Love your boots too!)
