Happy Spring! Yeessss! Spring!

Happy first day of Spring everyone!
Just in case you're all excited and thinking that I'm showing you my beautiful bounty of Spring flowers, I will let you down slowly and tell you that I'm so anxious to see flowers blooming, that I went back into our OLD pictures and found these beauties!

In my lifetime, the first day of Spring has never so closely coincided with Easter. People who follow the cycle of the Moon, and other acts of nature say it never will be this early, in my lifetime again, so I will enjoy this special occurrence.

Look closely, I think she stuck in her thumb and pulled out...why yes, it really is...
SPRING!!

Celebrate everyone, break out into a happy dance, and while you're dancin' that happy jig, let me know what fun things you plan to do for Easter.


Be sure and check out Gail at The Tattered Nest. She is featured today on the sidebar to celebrate the arrival of Spring. Wouldn't it be fun to sip your favorite hot drink on her beautiful enclosed porch?

I'm planning on coming to your house. Yippee :-) I'm going to bring something besides chocolate for dessert (imagine that) since it is Spring and things should be pastel colors. ha

Pretty spring flowers! We are just the two of us for Easter this year....but I will make the traditional ham, scalloped potatoes, baked beans, deviled eggs, etc...

This is really cute! I love the thumb in the egg, especially the way children will just sit and ponder what just happened. Too sweet!

Nice to meet you and OH HAPPY DAY!

I remember when Annie would wear a darling Easter dress. Now of course "that's dorky" LOL I wish I could get those days back...

That picture is precious. I wish spring was here, not yet. Hopefully Sunday so the kids can have a egg hunt. It's been raining here, so the ground is so soggy. Have a nice Holiday.... Stacy

No special plans for Easter. I'm trying to come up with something special... but haven't decided on anything yet.

Well, I'll probably be "out in the garden a'weedin" or some such thing! With spring comes weeds. With birdseed comes little plant sprouts that must be pulled up. Don't you just love spring?

HI RACHEL, THOSE FLOWERS ARE SO SPRING. THE LAST TIME EASTER WAS MAR. 23 WAS IN 1913, SO THIS IS A RARE YEAR. LOVE THE PICTURES OF THE LITTLE ONE. KEITH

Hi Rachel,
Happy Spring!

Love the pictures and the new porch featured too - just lovely. I'm going to go give a friendly porchly visit (don't think that's a word, maybe we'll make it a new one!).

Happy Easter too, Rachel.
