Beautiful, Beautiful Spring

Which way shall I turn?  A window plant?  A cat?  A walk in the park?  Working in my garden spot at Jason’s?  I think I need spring, the earth, plants, and a good soaking water of newly planted flowers, the kind that leaves the air smelling like dirt and promise.  That is what I need.  I need spring!

Here are some photos of recent activity.  On Monday I took the day off work to celebrate my birthday!  Happy Birthday to me!  Jason took me out to eat.  On Tuesday night we went to see The Steve Miller band.  Let me tell you, Steve Miller hasn’t lost a thing!  He was great!  Even today, Jason is preparing the yard so that I can get there and play in the flowers on my time off.  I am so needing spring.  More than ever in my life.  Here’s to spring!

Pretty little miss statue, sits near my desk.
Favorite vintage postcard of my collection, complete with letter home from soldier.
Yummy Angus Barn dessert, after birthday dinner with Jason.
Tiny little patch of phlox in bloom.

Enjoy this day!

  1. Happy Birthday!!!
    I need spring too…and I like the smell of dirt after a rain also.
    and I’ll throw in the smell of cut grass.
    (BTW, your cats looks so clean!)

    1. Hi, Andrea! The cats get combed and brushed regularly, here and at Jason’s. Jason was the one who taught me how much they love that! It does keep them really shiny. Black cats show dander more, it seems, so that is hard, but they are pretty. Thank you! xo Lynn

  2. Happy Belated Birthday Lynn! Looks and sounds like you had a wonderful day.
    I think we all need Spring. We received a bit of snow overnight.😫
    Have a good weekend!

    1. Hi, Robin! Snow??!! Boo! 🙂 I hope we have NO MORE SNOW this springtime season. I know it could happen, but no!! Weekend was great. Garden photos next post.

  3. Happiest of birthdays to you, Lynn! I need it to stop raining long enough to get out in the dirt. I love how you have your postcard displayed. That note from the soldier is a treasure!

  4. Oh Lynn…I’m sorry I didn’t get to wish you a happy birthday on your birthday, but it looks as if Jason took good care of you…especially when it came to dessert. Give me ice cream any day!

    That azaela is.. beautiful…just beautiful! And I adore vintage post cards…your is a beauty! I always feel like when I find them that I am reading part of someone’s history.

    I hope you have fun playing with the flowers…enjoy your weekend!
