"for the spring is really springing."

 Spring is here. Finally.

 And I'm extremely glad about it.

 So, in celebration of spring's long-awaited arrival, I am going to share with you some of my spring favorites.

|aw! this probably has nothing to do with spring. but I love it so much I just had to show you.|
 and this poem by Pooh.

"Oh, the butterflies are flying,
Now the winter days are dying.
And the primroses are trying
To be seen.
And the turtle-doves are cooing,
And the woods are up and doing,
For the violets are blue-ing
In the green."

What are some of your spring favorites?


  1. That cat is adorable! The Winnie the Pooh poem is really cute, too... I love him. :)

  2. such a cute picture of alfred!

    my favorite thing about spring is that I will get to see you and frolic with you through the flowers barefoot.

  3. Love the Winnie The Pooh poem and of course Alfred the cat. Also--Katie Daisy's work is beautiful.
    My spring favourites? Bare feet, short skirts and a delicious drink, the Vanilla Chiller, which this lovely cafe in town serves. Mmm...

  4. This lifted my spirit this morning :) Spring is so fun! Alfred is hilarious, the flowers are beautiful, and Winnie the Pooh is so cute!
    Katie Daisy's picture is awesome! I might have to repost it to my blog! :)

  5. I love the feeling of the grass under my toes!!!!!

  6. Your pictures of the cherry blossoms are lovely... and Alfed is such a little darling!

    One of my favorite things about Spring... without a doubt... the bunnies!! We have little cottontails that decided to live in OUR backyard, of which I feel very fortunate. I've been seeing some of the rabbits hop here and there lately, and simply can't wait for the wittle tiny ones!
