It Really is Spring

I saw my first robin yesterday.  Several had perched themselves on my crab apple tree and were enjoying its fruit.  Not one of my best photos, but still such a wonderful site to see.

Around the House This St. Patrick's Day

Before the sun showed its wonderful face this morning...
Violet lounged on Spring bedding...
I baked a batch of homemade chocolate chip cookies...
and then they felt the sun...
and all hell broke loose when I asked them if they wanted to go for a walk :)
Happy St. Patrick's Day and remember - "If you're lucky enough to be Irish, then you're lucky enough!"
I will be drinking a pint (or two) of Guinness to that this afternoon :)

Longing for Spring

There is nothing I would like more than to be able to enjoy a warm Spring day.  I would throw open all the windows, wash the walls, hang my sheets out to dry, pick up fallen branches and get my hands dirty gardening.  I have yet to see a robin or red wing blackbird.  I miss the sounds and the colors of Spring. 

So while I wait, I have decided to bring the colors and scents of Spring into my home.  A forsythia wreath adorns my entertainment center, my ironstone pitcher contains a bouquet of Spring flowers, a honeysuckle candle burns and my cut glass candy dish is full of colorful jellybeans (ready for eating :)  I will enjoy Spring on the inside, even if it is cold and gloomy outside.

A Wee Bit of the Green

Things are finally beginning to green up around here.  It has been a cold, long winter and I cannot say that I will be unhappy to see it go.  I think my dogs will agree with me.  They bring me so much enjoyment.  To most, a walk is just a walk, but to my dogs - it is the world.  In turn, it means the world to me.

I hope you enjoyed a wee bit of the green on tonight's walk.  Now get out and go for a walk yourself.
Have a great night.
