Spring!


(the first of my new pink daffodils)

I think spring has truly come to our area. Yes, we have been having some cold rainy days with night time temperatures close to or at the freezing point, but we are also having glorious sun filled days with blue skies dotted with pure white, fluffy, cotton ball clouds.

These are the days that bring a smile to the face, a spring in the step and a lightness of being. These are the days that have helped me get through the last couple of weeks.

I have missed visiting with all of you. I have missed seeing spring come to you - your flowers growing and blooming, the warm sun filled days of joy.

Lots has gone on in your lives in the last few weeks, as it has in mine. I hope to be able to catch up with all your news and get back to enjoying garden blogging.

Have a wonderful Easter and rejoice in the rebirth of our gardens!

Beckie, the daffodil is gorgeous! Is this one of the ones we bought together? Mine are nowhere near blooming yet; you must have had better planters than I:)

I hope you and your family have a happy Easter, that your garden brings you some peace and joy, and that the two of us can get together sometime in the next week.

Susie said...

Hey Beckie,

Glad to see your comment on my recent post. Since I have been so busy these days I am not able to answer each one like I use to. It is wonderful to be able to rely on my blogging friends for advice. That is why blogging is so much fun.

I was thinking about you last night and hoped you were doing okay.

What a pretty tone! I want to pick up some of these to plant in the fall...very soothing. Jennifer

Thank you for your comment, Beckie! I'm sorry my feeds aren't showing up; I've tried to correct it but just can't figure it out. I did put a new subscribe widget on my blog. Would you please do me a favor and subscribe again to see if it will correct the problem. All of this technical stuff is way over my head! Hopefully I can get it all figured out correctly when things settle down.
