Spring Fever

Are you as sick of this weather as I am?  We got a dumping of snow last week, and more is in the forecast for tonight.

I. Just. Can't. Take. It. Any. More!!

Luckily for my sanity, we are supposed to get a reprieve later in the week with temperatures in the 60's.  That makes me realize that Spring is just around the corner.

It can't get here soon enough for me, so I decided to cool my Spring fever with some eye candy.

One thing that always says Spring to me are tulips.  I grew up in the Pacific Northwest, and a trip to Skagit Valley to see the tulips in bloom was usually a yearly must-do.

Bryan Swan,

Tulips just always look cheery and happy to me. Aren't these adorable bunched in this "Tulips" crate?

spring spring spring!

And these in this wire basket.

I have a chicken wire basket we can line it with burlap...or gingham...and fill it with either baby's breath or orange tulips.


Bring some tulips into the house, and well the photo says it -- you've added a touch of Spring!

But it's not just tulips that make me think of Spring -- any flower will do.
Don't these Forget-Me-Nots look sweet?
And I can day dream about sitting in this meadow on a warm Spring day.
Ahhhhh....  Makes looking out at the dirty snow and the thought of more to come almost bearable! With photos like these and the promise of warmer weather to come, I might just make it through!

  1. Beautiful pics! Thanks......I really needed that, too! :o) We're getting 4-8 more inches tomorrow night! Ugh!

  2. Tulips are my favorite flower, especially the yellow. It's funny that half the county is getting snow and then here in CA we are in a drought. I'd kill for some rain. My apple trees are already blossoming from the heat and honestly, I could probably start all my veggie seeds right now. Today was a short skirt, a t-shirt and flip flops.

  3. I'm dying over those photos! Seriously cannot wait for spring...

  4. As much as I want spring to hurry up and get here, I need that time to catch up on things that have to be done before spring arrives.

  5. Such gorgeous photos! We have plenty of flowers here already and I can't wait for more!
