"Life isn't long enough to do all you could accomplish. And what a privilege even to be alive. In spite of all the pollutions and horrors, how beautiful this world is.
Supposing you only saw the stars once every year. Think what you would think. The wonder of it!"--Tasha Tudor

Signs of Spring


Well, it seems that Spring has decided to grace us with her presence. Last night was the second night it was actually too warm for a little fire in the wood stove. This morning on my way home I was flagged down by an enthusiastic group of little girl entrepeneurs with handmade signs reading, "Lemonade~50 cents." They were wearing brightly colored tee shirts...not a sweater in the bunch. As you can see, the small stream in front of my house is no longer icy; but mossy and flowing again. Weebles is inspecting some of the tiny seeds I planted in these little jiffy greenhouses. She knows there is catnip planted amidst the tomatoes and flowers and herbs. I told her that watching it won't make it grow any faster; but she is a stubborn kitty. I bought a couple of ranunculus when picking up the seed starters. I am always drawn to this flower. It reminds me of a cross between a gorgeous peony and a rose I think. Enjoy the weekend. I'm off to throw open the windows and do a bit of Spring cleaning ~ as soon as I finish my lemonade!-CS ^..^

Love the pictures Cat! I didn't know you painted that hedgehop, I started one a week ago and am also finished. I work in pastels though. The blog looks good with the new colors and pics:-)
