Waiting for Spring

I have yet to rant and rave over a long cold winter.  I do not want to live in a climate that is endless summer. I can not imagine a world without spring. Spring is almost here!  I love how it can arrive little by little each day.  The grass is greening up in just the last 2 days  here.  I saw white tiny flowers emerge on an unknown shrub just this morning.  I see the dogwood trees loaded with tight little buds that will be beautiful flowers.  It will come soon and it will go quickly.  Open your eyes to the change of the season and marvel how overnight a tree can go from its barren winter look to a showy pink fuzz ball!

Here are some pictures of past projects that whisper 
or shout spring to me.

 Milk glass and pretty spring flowers are a match made in heaven!

For this project, that I envisioned would be great in a nursery,  I used scrapbook paper as the background and painted thrift store bunnies and frames.

I painted some thrift sore candlesticks white and the birdhouses were given a spring color for a very cheap spring look.

Spring, summer, who cares?  It is just boring old dated, worn out wood pieces brought to life.  

Enjoy the emergence of the 
world that has been resting.

Yesterday the twig was brown and bare;
To-day the glint of green is there;
Tomorrow will be leaflets spare;
I know no thing so wondrous fair,
No miracle so strangely rare.
I wonder what will next be there!
~L.H. Bailey

Everything is blooming most recklessly; if it were voices instead of colors, there would be an unbelievable shrieking into the heart of the night.  
~Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters of Rainer Maria Rilke


No winter lasts forever; no spring skips its turn. 
 ~Hal Borland
