Thinking of Spring

     I wanted to share this lovely vintage fairy picture with you. Hopefully "Spring" is just around the corner. I miss the flowers and the scent of the warm breezes. We have not had a cold winter or a lot of snow but the time seems endless. I long for the sun shining on me making me feel so warm and protected. I hear the birds outside and I even saw our resident Starling checking out the hole in our tree that has served as their nest the last two years.
     Our family has grown over the winter. We have another cat; he showed up just before Christmas and walked in the front door and he has never left. He is so beautiful. He coat is soft shades of grey with tufts between his toes. His tail is large and fluffy and he has a beautiful mane. He is a Norwegian Forest cat. He settled in and all the other cats treat him like one of the family. He is very gentle and he has not asked to go outside once since he got here.
     I am anxious to see the flowers bloom. I can see the buds on our trees. Soon the leaves will unfold and surround our yard and once again it will be our oasis.

      Our home is a work in progress and we have may things to do but our yard is great. The trees that line the property are years old and the pine trees right beside the house can be seen from the top of town. We are hoping to install a new sliding door on the main level and decide on building a deck or installing a patio. One of these days there will be a second floor deck. The sliding door on the second level is our master bedroom.
     Everything takes time.

Love Always,

  1. Hi Kim, It was nice to hear from you. I love when you visit. Your grass is so green. We still are covered with what I call the winter hay look. So much thatch..will be happy when March is over as then we can start working on the lawn once again. It was so nice to hear the Cardinal singing yesterday. They are here all winter but they are silent. He must have been calling for his mate. I love spring and the flowers and birds..
    Enjoy what sunny days you have..
