a little bit of spring sunshine





The birds have been singing spring songs for a few weeks now. Our grass is turning much more green again.  I didn’t expect to see the daffodils blossoming already! It is not even February yet.

But there they were, looking as much like sunshine as they always do. I know I say it every year, but I love these first blossoms of spring, and each discovery is like finding another gift, just for me.

This morning, after taking unusually long to start the car, Scott came in with a bouquet for me. Now, even though the sun is hiding behind some rather rainy-looking clouds (oh, wait—there’s laundry still on the line!) we have sunshine sitting on our table.

How could this not be a beautiful day?

    It has been warm here a lot… in the 60’s! We don’t have daffodils yet that I’ve seen and sure miss hanging clothes on the line! Our yard is too small and we have two medium size dogs so the clothes would prolly end up as a doggy tent! LOL

      I have been so happy to have a clothesline again! But yes..medium and large dogs + clothes on a line=almost inevitable disaster! ;)

    I was so excited to find your blog and reading challenge. I have been reading and was looking forward to linking up with the other readers. I have my post up, but I don’t see a post from you to link up to for January. Did I miss it? I looked all over you blog. I hope all is well and that you are just behind or forgot. The daffodils are lovely. I have seen a few green shoots around our area but no flowers yet. It is way early, but then we have had a very, very mild winter. Have a great day!

    Debbie, I’m running a bit behind! I try, but don’t always get the posts up on the 1st like I want to. Working on getting better at that. ;) The post should be up by the weekend, though, and I’m looking forward to reading your post!!

    Great Chantel,
    Now I will stop worrying and just keep checking back until you post it. No hurry. We ALL get behind. I am behind on another post I was supposed to have up on the 1st… I hope to get that up today or tomorrow.
