The Joys of Spring!


This weekend brought sunshine, family and great joy into my life.
The sun shone, the skies were blue, the birdies sang and flowers opened. What more could a person want? I hope your days are joyous too.


Grandson George played on his "Nestled in Springtime" quilt. The days were bright and clear, perfect pram pushing weather and in the garden the crocus bloomed.

  11. Valerie, I so enjoyed this post. The pictures and the words just prove that spring is very soon going to overtake our long, drawn out winter.

    That little lad in his cars trousers is so precious!

  13. Your Grandson is so cute and so is that quilt. He looks so happy laying on it and playing with his toy.

    I can remember mine when they were that little. Time goes by too fast.

  18. A totally joyous blog,beautiful painting, beautiful flowers and what a precious baby.

    Many years ago in school we sang
    Handel's "Golden Hearted Spring"
    which still echoes in my mind at this time each year. I do so love the phrase "What misers of joy are they,Who will not share delight."
    Thank you for sharing the joy.

  19. The blue sky and sunshine certainly makes everything seem so much better.
    George would cheer up any season, he is so lovely.
    And it is woderful to see spring flowers and hear the birds singing. Which is just what I am doing now. I might even do some gardening later, when the frost melts.

  20. The quilt is a delight - but the hand-sdown winner is
    George -almost as lovely as our Henry James......!

  21. Yes, there is definitely a hint of spring in the air now...we just need those cold winds to disappear and the sun to get stronger and we are there.

    Grandson George is a cutie on his quilt.

  25. oh what beautiful crocus! I rally needed to see that! I bought crocus last fall and forgot to plant them, It is probbaly too late, but I stuck them in the ground a couple weeks ago anyway! I wonder if they will sprout? They seemed to be mostly still good bulbs with little eyes peaking out of them! maybe next year if the moles don't eat them!
