Random Acts of Spring...

We had the most lovely
Spring Weekend...
 
It is just nice to say
"Spring Weekend"  Isn't it?
 

today the grey skies returned...
 


the rain...
 


but,  frankly that's o.k.
 
the garden is thirsty,
and I am a little achy...
 


 
I do think the rain is beautiful...
 

 
today,
as the dogs had a run around
the garden....
 
I picked a handful
of Muscari...
 

 
 
 
my Mr. brought home
a couple bundles of Daffodils...
 
since they grow them commercially
in my valley...
 
you can often find kids selling bundles,
a little like
Spring Lemonade stands...
 

 
I brought out
some Spring decorations,
to start arranging...
 

 
Daisy,  Iris and Randy
had the best idea...
 
a snuggly lazy nap...
 

 
all in all it was just a random day,
sometimes they are the most special...
 
I am linking up to,
 
and
 
 
 
I Love it when You stop by...

Dear Bella, I am completely enchanted by your photography! Your photos really get the feeling of spring across. How nice of your husband to bring you daffodils, no flowers say more "spring" to me. The photo of your dogs is so cute. I would love to see more photos of your sweet Italian Greyhounds on your blog in the future! Wishing you a very wonderful and happy spring!

I would LOVE to be able to say "spring weekend" but there's no sign of it here yet. Makes your pictures all the more alluring. As always, your flowers are incredible, your babies are precious, your photography is breathtaking.

Your garden is so lovely, Bella. And it's especially wonderful that you share it with all of us who are still waiting for spring.

Enjoy!

Hello Bella,
Your photos are always beautiful. Love what is blooming in your garden. I just purchased a bundle of daffodils and I wonder if they came from up there.
What a sweet photo of your dogs.
Have a wonderful day.
Blessings,

Wow! Gorgeous header! And what a sweet little bundle your pups make. Your blooms are all fabulous with a few raindrops on them. A nice rainy day now and then is just about perfect!

Cindy said...

Oh my gosh your flowers are so beautiful. Here in North Carolina, we'll warm to the 70's then within 2 days have ice rain and snow, and then it repeats. this has been going on for a month, spring is just soooo close, and such a tease right now, i'm thankful for each sunny day, and so are the little flowers and tree blossoms

Hi Bella,
I am in awe at the beauty...and more then a little envious!
We are getting the worst blizzard in years ...and it is supposed to be spring after all.
Guess,I will have to be patient for awhile yet.
In the meantime,I will enjoy your beautiful spring!

You're so right Bella, the simplest days can be the happiest. It's then we have the time to appreciate all the beauty around us. Beautiful photos.

Sarah said...

Bella, your random bits of spring brightened my day. It's been gray and chilly here again.
Love the shots of the rain kissed flowers.

Janneke said...

Absolutely most beautiful pictures!The rainddrops on the flowers, the pale pink Magnolia and your lovely spring decorations but most of all I adore your dogs in their "snuggly lazy nap".

Haworth said...

Such beautiful flowers, Bella! And how wonderful that you've had weather to bring all that lovely color into your garden. Those pups look so content... naps on a rainy day are the best! Wishing you another lovely 'Spring Weekend'.

Burlap Luxe said...

Love the scent of beauty here, what beautiful spring blooms.
As for the pups are they Italian Greyhounds, if not the pattern on a couple of them and ears remind me of my Italian Greyhound ours is now 7 months old and younger pictures I have posted her.

Have a beautiful weekend.
