Good Bye February...Hello March






















Good Bye February.....Hello March.... hey everybody..February is almost gone...and you know what that means.....SPRING ! I have a little daffodil update for you today. Remember those daffodils I got the other day..well, look what greeted me this morning as I walked downstairs to make tea. THESE beauties. They opened overnight in my kitchen window. While we were all asleep under a full moon...the daffodils opened.The white ones are from my garden. We had a pretty good thunderstorm yesterday morning and it knocked the life out of these outside, so I clipped them and brought them in to add to my daffodils. The little cardboard easter chickie is old, i have a collection of them across my piano, but i put this one up in the window...she just looks so Springy... the little spun wool rabbit is old too..i also collect those.Can you see the row of clay pots through the screen? I just hung that windowsill container on the fence the other day. It is very shady there but I am going to plant some impatiens in the pots. I saw some in the Burpee catalog called Candy Box. I have ordered them before and the colors really do like they are out of a candy box.The vine is a morning glory..I can't wait till is starts to bloom.... how many days till Spring?

  5. It seems that everyone is waiting for Spring. I would like not to wear so many layers such as a scarf, hat and gloves. But that will change soon.
    I love your little chickies and rabbit - so cute.

  9. Today was gorgeous after rains and winds, it was so like spring. I went for a long walk in the green hills, breathing in wonderful fresh air. It was wonderful. I'm glad you are knitting. I want to crochet and make necklaces out of fine thread. Oh the ideas.

  14. Goodbye February! I can't believe those daffodils! I have a few peeping up in my yard, but it's still too cold for comfort here in central Arkansas. I love Easter--can't wait to get my decorations out. Love your chicks!

  19. Oh, I love how quickly dafodils and iris open! I bought ten of each at the farmer's market, all buds, and that same evening they were open and smiling at me!
    My sweet friend, it is going to be just wonderful watching spring unfold through your pictures and recipes.
    Love you.

  22. What a springy, cheerful post! I love your daffodils and your collections!

    Every spring, my husband and I admire the neighbors tulips and daffodils and swear that we are going to plant some in our yard. Somehow, we forget and never do. I wish we had. I'm just itching for some spring color around here!

  24. Ahhh! We were going to go to SLO this weekend, but too much rain. We had a couple of places we were going to look at. I just love it there so much, and so does the rest of the family.

    I can't wait until we have less rain, and we can see SLO again.

    I love your flowers, and your house just looks divine.

  26. We're still under a heavy blanket of snow here, in my little neck of the woods. But, yesterday, a pretty butterfly was fluttering inside my kitchen window. A sign of spring!

  29. Ah, yes...March. Even the cut flowers in the local stores look a tad bedraggled and I'm gearing up to head to the barn in the first snowstorm of the month.
    Baked oatmeal, warmed cream and warmth wait me here at the house and I only have to either stay inside or go to the studio. Wonderful!
    Love your new header photo, I'm almost beginning to long for spring.

  30. I really enjoy seeing the seasonal changes at the farmhouse; they cheer me during all this unrepentant rain. I hope you and Buddy are both keeping safe.

  31. I am so happy to see March. It's like the beginning of Spring to me. Before long the flowers will be up and the leaves will be growing on the trees. I can't wait, I've had enough of winter.
