It's Waking Up

We'd love to have you join us for a walk. March is roaring in like a lion around here. The wind is howling today but the temperatures are very warm so my faithful companion and I are heading out. And we discovered the garden is waking up from it's long winter nap. We found all kinds of new green growth peeking thru winter's fallen and brown leaves. Pretty soon the gardens will be a riot of Spring color. All is good.

Hi Lynn, your walking companion is adorable. Isn't it exciting, the weather is warmer by me too and I also see my garden peeking up through the ground. Thanks goodness spring is springing.

Bebe said...

Hi Lynn,

What a nice walk you had ~ enjoyed seeing your first signs of spring (especially the eternally cheerful daffodil!). Thanks for sharing them with us!

Your walking companion looks so fluffy, soft and friendly ~ he let you take a wonderful picture of him. Has he considered a career in the movies? :)

Hugs, Bebe :)

Sandi McBride said...

We've been like you, busily preparing for spring...cleaning out and dusting with 7 the bird houses...pruning the fruit trees, tilling the garden. So much work, so very worth every calorie burned!
hugs

Susie Q said...

Oh Lynn! How lovely and it looks warm and fresh. We had the first inkling of Spring this weekend but Winter roared back in today.

Your precious walking buddy is oh so gorgeous!

Have a sweet Tuesday!

Thanks for this great dose of spring! A little reminder to those of us who know snow is supposed to be creeping in again tonight! I love the sweet face of your "walking companion." Who could resist some exercise with a fine friend like that? :)

Ahhhhhh Spring. We don't have any yet, but today it is raining and that is always a good sign that the flowers will be here, even if it is New England. Thanks for the walk. Blessings, Karen

bj said...

I loved going on this fabulous walk with you and seeing the first signs of spring. Out here in West Texas, the wind is howling, day and night...and will, all thru spring, into hot summer. Spring isn't a favorite of ours out here because when the winds blow, so does the dust and sand. One sand storm after the other. Nope, I don't look forward to spring but I love our hot summers.
hugs, bj

Susan said...

We are in a winter storm warning right now. I am glad someone posted pictures of spring because I have forgotten what it looks like. Thanks for the walk and I love your walking companion--he sure is cute.

You sure are much further from us when it comes to spring flowers. Here we only have snow drops yet, but we love them anyway LOL.
Hope you have a great Thursday.

These are just the BEST pictures!:) chris

Sherry ~ Cherie ~ ms. herbes de provence said...

I'm loving looking at these photographs -- you are much further into spring down there than we are up here -- we're still feet deep in snow, which once it warms sufficiently will start to melt. But I also heard that we are in for more snow this week. So thank you for sharing your walk. My soul needed to see this!
