my absolute favorite time of the year. Lots of Springness happening around here.

First off, we had a gorgeous weekend. One of my favorite things is the moment when I realize I'm gazing at the "green haze". What is that, you ask. Well, when the trees start budding out at the beginning of spring and you're driving down the road or just standing there looking at a line or cluster of these budding trees, it looks like there is a green haze surrounding the trees. LOVE that green haze! It totally fills me with joy.

Which brings up the topic of spring cleaning. Due to the beautiful weekend, we spent a big chunk of it outside tidying up. The deck needed it bad.

My farmboy made an attempt to till up some areas in the beds. However, the tiller petered out on us. But we did get some tulips and hydrangeas into the ground.

And as usual, there is always a slacker or two.

I just love the satisfaction of planting something.

I took these on Sunday afternoon before a mega storm blew in. And when I checked the weather this morning, wouldn't ya know it...possible snow tonight! Go figure.

Today the house is going to get a spring cleaning as well as this place. Time for February and Valentine's Day to move on.

Next topic...spring inspiration!
Put this little lovely together the other night.
