~Knock, Knock~


She has arrived, Spring! Well, the weatherman said it's not official until close to midnight here...but she's on my cottage's doorstep!

I am an avid gardener...as avid as a girl living on the Canadian prairie can be.

I have been feeling a little like I imagine my mid-March garden must feel. A little bit soggy...sloppy. Applecores...Halloween's pumpkins...eggshell...bits of the past...gracefully decaying...creating fertile ground.
Speckled with pods...seeds from a season gone...
Lying in wait...breath catching with anticipation...

For those of you interested in eco-friendly clothing please check out magnoliapearl.com. I have got to get myself some of this loveliness!
(Once upon a time...fairies on my front porch...)



Have a beautiful day!

Yep, I think I'm feeling a bit like your garden too. And I love those fairies. Fabulous. Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier today.

Hello there! Thank you so much for visiting my blog and leaving such a wonderful message. Your art work is so beautiful! What a lovely space you have here. :)
Yes, my garden is peering at me through the window, wondering when I am going to come out there and clear away the remnants from last year so the new has room to grow!

So nice to meet you.

Hello beautiful you, and happy Spring!!

Your door is lovely and inviting and immediately made me smile.

I too have been feeling that mid-March weird soggy and squishy type feeling... but i am trying to get my bearings back!

I've missed seeing lovely you, and your perfect smile...

Hello Spring!!

love you :)
