Dropping By...

 
I have been busy all week,
 
doing springy things,
a little spring cleaning,
a little gardening,
a little finishing up of winter projects...
 
just all those small things
that when they pile up
keep you so busy...
 
 
I thought it was about time
I dropped by...
 
a quick post
to share my Snowdrops...
 


 
the weather has turned nasty,
so I filled my soup tureen with them...



 
straight from the garden
moss and all...
 
so garden fresh,
a little worm
 crawled out while I took pics:-)


 
Nor will I then thy modest grace forget,
Chaste Snow-drop,
venturous harbinger of Spring,
And pensive monitor of fleeting years!
     
William Wordsworth
 To a Snow-Drop
 
you know spring is but a month away!!




 
over the weekend,
Mike and I took a mini trip to Eastern Washington...
 
the terrain is entirely different
on the other side of the Cascades...
 
we had been wanting to see wild Big Horn Sheep...
(do you see them on the hillside?)


 
during the winter they bring in hay
to feeding stations...
 

 
the Elk horn in on the free hay,
there must have been eight hundred of them...

 
I hope you are having a
 LOVELY DAY...
 
today I will be joining...
and
 
Thanks for (snow)dropping by....

I am SO jealous- You have snow drops and I have snow dropping from the sky that is supposed to continue for 24 hours! Wanna trade?;>) xo Diana

What a great idea to bring your snowdrops into the house to enjoy. Amazing photos of the sheep and elk. That would be awesome to see so many elk. Pamela

Your snowdrop pictures are dreamy. I love them in that tureen. Love that look. So pretty, and I love all the white of course. The elk and sheep are amazing. Wild adventures! Great to get out, yeah?

Gayle said...

Oh my, those sheep are amazing! And of course I am adoring the snow drops. So ready for spring here as well Bella. Today we went to Vashon Island to a quilt show. It was a great get away with a girlfriend and just what I needed to cope with the winter gray weather.
Have a wonderful weekend,
Gayle

Beautiful, Bella. I'd love to have snow drops in my garden. They are so lovely sitting in your white tureen. Great idea!

I love that you brought your snowdrops in the house dirt and all--I should do that! My snowdrops look sad amongst all the dead plants--and the pouring rain!

Jennifer said...

I have heard of snow drops but never saw one. They are very delicate and so pretty looking :o) Have a nice weekend, Jennifer

I love the snowdrop flowers. So pretty. I may have to consider buying one.

I love how you used a soup tureen to put the snow drops into. They look really pretty sitting in it!!

I couldn't see the worm...

Hope you had a great trip!! Thank you for these wonderful pictures!!

Love your beautiful snow drops, Bella and the lovely quote to go along. How nice that you took a drive across the mountains to see the elk and sheep. Glad you didn't choose this weekend to go. The weather is so awful. But your lovely snowdrops remind us that spring is coming! xx

Visiting your blog for the first time. Your photographs are beautiful! I pinned your dresser planter, hope ut's OK.

Bernideen said...

You created springtime for sure with this tureen arrangement - lovely!!!

La Vie Quotidienne said...

Oh how pretty! And I love the way you put them in the terrine.

Years ago we went to Pullman, Wa every summer, where my husband was attending WSU. I well remember the vast difference as we would travel along the river from western to eastern Wa. I definately prefer your greener, lusher enviromnent.

Haworth said...

What a beautiful tureen of snowdrops, Bella! So warming with the promise of spring on an end-of-winter day. And what a beautiful landscape on your weekend journey. I hope you have a lovely weekend and that your weather improves. (We're waiting for ANOTHER snowstorm, here. Oh dear...)

Madelief said...

Dear Bella,

Such a good idea to take the snowdrops inside. They look beautiful in the terrine.

Beautiful photo's from your trip!

Happy weekend!

Hi Bella,
Your snowdrops are perfect to show during this weather! Cute title to go along with your theme too. I just published a post relating to snow as well, I hope you'll come and see. Have a great weekend! Gina

Heaven's Walk said...

Bella - you live in the most beautiful place! What amazing photos! I can't even imagine taking a mini-trip and seeing those gorgeous creatures!! :)

That is what we need, bringing snowdrops inside, for outside it is bitterly cold. Love the pictures of the landscapes with the Big Horn Sheep.

The snowdrops are gorgeous..very sweet and pretty...Happy Sunday with love Janice

Evi said...

Boy, I am green with envy!
Nothing sprouting here yet. It is still under snow. Slowly melting, but I want to see something green....
Love the mountain sheep. It is an interesting landscape, and looks very foreign to me as an North Eastener.
Have a wonderful week,
Evi

Your snowdrops are so beautiful, Bella!
I may need to get some of those planted!
You were over on MY side of the state, I hope you enjoyed your travels...Will snowdrops grow on the eastern desert side of the state?
My hydrangeas are moving and the apricot trees have just begun to bud...
But it is still cold, and that is good for the apples and the soft fruits, as well.
Love your beautiful table decor with the tureen...
Hearts,
Betsy

Your Snowdrops are so pretty! I've never been to Eastern Washington or Western for that matter but this looks beautiful. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and for your nice comments about my art.
