Some Springtime Cheer

Oh, finally it is a beautiful sunny calm day here on the Island -crisp but not bitter.When we went for our walk the trees and shrubs were sparkling with frost and there was a little heat in the sun so I'm hoping that it it for the bitter cold this winter! I know there is a lot of winter left yet but as long as it isn't too cold to enjoy being out for awhile I won't complain.

The primulas below I picked up at Walmart for less then $1.50 each and they will bloom for quite awhile and then in spring I will plant them in the garden where they will last for years.It is so nice to have some spring color in the house this time of the year.

Hope you enjoy your weekend.

Hi Carolyn,
Love your new header! It is so bright & cheery; just the thing we need this time of year to perk us up. Thanks for dropping by today and for your nice comments. I think perhaps I'll start looking for slipcovers for the chairs too. Have a lovely day.

Blessings,
Sandi

Your new photo is so peaceful and fresh. So glad the weather is giving you a break. I keep wishing for a snow day just to have a day to snuggle up at home. Unfortunately snow days are a rarity for us living in the south.

I do agree, it's so nice with some flowers inside that make it feel like spring. Even better when you later on can plant them outside.
I love the flowers in the ballet shoes, beautiful.
Have a nice sunday.
