Gently...

March
began gently...
 

in like a lamb...
 



I spent the morning
chasing away all traces of winter...
 
I brought my lamb statuary
in to sit on the mantle...
 


the rain
was falling softly...
 



 
the first Camellia bloom
popped open...
 


 
in the afternoon,
I bought a couple of flats of blooms
to fill my front porch planter...
 


color!
I am thirsty for color...
 



 
It was a perfect beginning,
I hope yours was too...
 
I will be joining...
 
Happy March...

Oh the flowers are so pretty and so Spring. I think everyone is ready for Spring.
Your lamb is darling and looks so good on your mantle.
We had so much rain, but we really needed it here in So CA. I am anxious to dig in the dirt LOL.
Have a great week.

That is sight for sore eyes. We have ice and snow here. We usually have temps in the 50's and the crocus and daffodils are blooming by now! Yours are lovely!

Oh my gosh, your flat of plants is just heavenly. It was 68 degrees here in North Carolina yesterday, and snowing today! But the little daffs are still hanging in there trying their hardest to open their little blooms...

Those colors are such a jolt of happiness, Bella! No wonder you couldn't resist them. And your litte lamb is so dear. Only 17 more days until spring.... counting, counting...

Susan Stillwell said...

Beautiful, as always! Maybe you could come chase winter away here? :)

How enchanting! Spring will be especially welcome here in Michigan where it's always, "In like a lion, out like a lamb." Our March began like a lion with temps at 12 below zero and 3 feet of snow still on the ground! To see blooms like yours in March would be extremely surprising. We may have to wait until April...maybe late April. Good thing Easter is late this year!

I love your sweet lamb, and your beautiful spring flowers. Gorgeous colors and photography. How I'd love to bring spring in here, but with two feet of snow on the north side of our house, I am patiently waiting . . . Thank you for reminding me what I have to look forward to!

Your lamb is very charming, Bella - I love the little flowers tucked behind his ear. I can't wait to see your flowers planted - they are so cheerful on a dreary afternoon. Lovely photos today, my Dear. Hugs xo Karen
