Spring, oh spring

Oh Spring,  spring

Where forth art thou?

Oh Spring, you were here last week. I took pictures of the evidence.

Azaleas in the yard at the cottage a little over a week ago.

And now this…………. picture taken today after almost a week of record breaking cold..

I can’t control the outdoor weather,,,, but, it can be spring indoors. That I can control.


An economical,  colorful  and fast way to decorate for spring. Plastic eggs.

And a plus….these eggs will be used for an Easter Egg hunt in April.


















One more night with freeze warning temperatures.

Oh Spring, spring……Your arrival Monday, March 20 will be welcomed with sunshine and a high in the mid 60’s.


Charleston, Charleston

Everything you’ve heard is true!

The flavors, sights, sounds, people and traditions …there’s no other city like Charleston S.C.

A long weekend in February…….  perfect time for a trip to the Holy City.

The weather was beautiful…….hard to complain about that

except, it was so sunny…..not the best for picture taking.

But no way was I going to leave without snapping a few.

The famous Rainbow Row.

The architecture , art galleries, restaurants, and King Street shopping.

So much to do…..never enough time.


The battery

One of many old churches ….French Huguenot Church







And all too soon……………It’s goodbye for now………I’ll be back.


The New February

This is the way I remember February.


This is the new February

Yep. February is the new spring.

Spring is busting out all over. Guess that old groundhog was wrong.

If winter is the new spring , will that make spring the new summer?

Sigh…too confusing. I can only imagine how confused the trees and flowers are feeling.

With spring outside,  I am  in the mood to take away warm and cozy winter decor

and replace it with spring/summer decorations.



These little bunnies showing up six weeks before Easter. Just adorable.

Any suggestions for names for these sweet bunnies?








Anyone ready for ice cold lemonade?  In February?
