Afternoon Sun.

The last few days have been so gloomy
but this happened today. So very worth the
wait and the warmth was very welcomed.
Temperatures are rising and the melt is on.

Twelve Hours.

Today we went from a snowy blizzard to ....

.... the warm sun melting in just 12 short hours.

Sprinter ....

.... whatever is beginning to call our
so called Spring around here. A combo.

I'm not going to complain. I know it
will happen and soon it will be Summer!

Outside My Window.


Yesterday, as predicted, the rain began
to fall. The wind picked up and within
the hour, the rain had turned to snow.
All night it continued. Welcome Spring!

Cherish Link Party #2.

It's Sunday night, time for our 2nd week of our link party. If you'd like to join in and share with us something that you cherish, a person, a place, a thing, something you love, just click on the link below and begin your post. It's right under my pictures at the bottom.

For my contribution, I'd like to share something that I cherish but can't have right now .... the exquisite fragrance of freshly cut flowers. As we still have snow on the ground and more is expected over the next two days, I am personally craving the greenery of flowers and the amazing scent that is so invigorating. When we stayed at the B & B in Victoria a couple of weeks ago, the front entrance had this little desk with a beautiful bouquet to greet us each time we went out and then came back in. I wish I could truly describe the scent but you'll just have to trust me .... amazing! I can't wait for our garden to start to emerge from the frozen tundra, to show us it's little buds and bloom into sweet gifts to enjoy all Summer ~ hoping we'll get Summer after this long and cold Winter. 

Aren't these pretty? The colors are a blend of my three favorite shades of ivory, green and lavender. It's inspired me to figure out which plants and which colors we will plant this year for our big pots for the veranda and the back deck. While the snow swirls around us, I can at least gaze at these pictures often and dream about what we hope our gardens and our plant pots will look like soon. 

Will you join in for our second link party?
We'd love to learn what you cherish this week.

Tonight ....

.... is the 2nd week of our "Something
I Cherish" Sunday Link Party.

I hope you'll join in and share something
that is precious to you, something you
cherish. A person, a place, a thing ....
anything you'd like to share with all of us.
The link will go up later tonight and will
be up all week. Hope to see you there!

In the Fog ....

 ,,,, at the cottage on the cliff.
It was silent and very grey.

We couldn't see the mountain.
We couldn't see the ocean.

The quiet was unnerving.
The mist and fog was creepy.

It lasted all day long.
By night it had drifted.

We had a bit left by bed time.
And the next day it was sunny.

Doesn't this look like it
should be in a movie?

Dh trying to capture the look of
the fog in the trees on the cliff.

What did I do while he
played photographer?

Made a big pot of Irish tea
to last us all thru the afternoon.

Just Because.

It was a tough week. So many emotions, so many tears, so many questions and no true answers. So it was touching that dh stopped at one point and picked up this sweet package for me, complete with a little ribbon. I love it! We haven't figured out what the plant is just yet but it's colorful and the spot and felt flower and purple butterfly are sweet additions. It did help my heart and reminded me that even in the darkest of times, flowers will still bloom. And love will always get us through.
