Spring is here!!



Actually, It's been here since January...


That's how it is here in South Texas

We skip winter...

and go on to spring...

No heavy jackets..


No ice...

No melting snow..



And that's just fine with me...

  4. Hi Marissa,

    Love your bold and bright pics! You described EXACTLY the kind of seasons we have here on Crete. Fall and then spring. That's it.

  13. I wish we were getting some of that pretty warm weather right now. I live in the south and we usually have that now too, but this season has been so fickle! Your flowers look so pretty and I'm jealous that your grass is already green.

  17. That's my girl, Marissa! Bloom where you're planted. No hankering after another home because your nest is best! Lots to teach us complainers in that sweet attitude.

  21. That's pretty much how it is here. We had about 3 weeks where jackets were required. Now it's back to the heat -- almost reaching 100 degrees already during the day ... and it only gets worse. Have a great rest of the week. Tammy

  22. Hi Marissa!

    Happy Spring! Spring in the Pacific Northwest is bright and beautiful one day, snow yesterday, then sun and wind and rain and back to sun...all in one day. It is one reason Washington is called the Evergreen State. A little bit of everything to make every plant and tree and flower grow bountiful.

    Did you enjoy the catalogs I sent?

    Thinking of you, have a beautiful Sunday!
