Welcome Spring : :

We had a beautiful weekend to welcome Spring, a special few days where you can enjoy being out without a jacket and yet there are still piles of snow on the ground. (Today, not so much!) I took many photos -- of the kids so excited, happily embracing Spring in their own ways, of the Spring flowers breaking through the ground, of all the thawing, and mess that Winter has left behind. Those photos must have influenced my fabric stashing this weekend, right away I could see the similarities between a few of them. Can you?

Pots from around our old house. We brought them over from the old garage and set them here where they were quickly buried with snow. Soon they will be blooming Sedums, Blazing Star, Chives, Spearmint, Lavender, Bee Balm, and more...

I love all the color in this photo! She was whipping up a magic potion or possibly some stew for the fairies she's expecting this Spring.

It is quite amazing how taking a snapshot of a moment can stay with you and influence you, without you even realizing it.

Happy Spring to all! ~ Maureen
