    With still about 20-30 inches of snow on the ground and more to come this weekend, I sincerely doubt spring will arrive in our area, by appearance, in just a little less than 2 weeks. πŸ˜‰ However, seeing these lovely images of spring decor does make my heart happy….as did the video of Ruby.

    I love seeing your posts and then sometimes being able to say “Ooooh I have something similar to that…or that…or I should go looking for something like that.” It’s always the best and loveliest eye candy to start my day. πŸ˜€

    The clocks spring forward this weekend. Yea! I love it when it’s light longer in the evening, as I often walk my dog after dinner. Spring is my favourite time of year with the trees budding, the grass greening up and the sun getting a little warmer. It’s a time of hope and renewal.

    I love the spring, too. I call it the lacey time of year, the time when tree are not fully leafed out and we can see through them to the sky. Magical…
