It's like heaven....I tell ya!
Late afternoon yesterday I stepped away from the craft room, just couldn't take looking outside at the lovely day any longer.  My hands were in the dirt (and very dirty) for the first time this year♥

If you don't know me...I love "outside", my gardens, the fresh spring smell, the sunshine..just nature in general.

While I've been forcing Spring inside....things are happening outside too.

the first tiny lil' jonquil forced open in a teacup
had some fun photographing it
I like the shadow in this one
same as first..with flash
it's a wee little bloom, only 1" across

purple/blue hyacinth
late bloomer to my pink and yellow ones

and outside we have pretty crocus, opened up to the sun yesterday

I did manage to finish the prize for Week #4 - Egg Hunt
here it is...Spring Chick in Jello Mold, Prim Peep in a Peat Pot and 3 of my Large Antiqued Eggs
(Pink, Blue & Lavender)

I would like to Welcome and say Hello to my new friends who have visited and signed on to follow my blog in the last few days.  Great to have you and look forward to getting to know you.

And to all my regular peeps...I love ya!  You make bloggin' fun, always appreciate your comments and visits!

Raising my Coffee Cup to toast ya...Cheers


  1. Traci,

    The first flowers are always the most precious every year!...enjoy your day..


  2. I love the spring flowers. I have never forced bulbs. We have year round blooms because it is to warm, but the desert in spring is beautiful.

  3. Morning Traci~
    TFS pictures of your lovely spring flowers! I'm so ready to be outdoors but it's still cold. The past weekend was beautiful and a huge tease as to what will come, sometime! Now, the neighbors get more sun than our house so of course their tulips and the bleeding heart is showing promise. At least I can look out from my office/sewing room and enjoy their blooms!
    Havin' a cup with ya this morning~
    Enjoy your day!
