Craving Spring

First of all, I apologize for the blurry picture. It can be seen in a much better format in Shades of Country by Chippy Irvine. While at work yesterday, I came across this book again. I've checked it out several times--enough that I should probably order it--and the book flipped open to this page...the simple beauty of an old set of stairs propped up against a back door just got to me. I want to do this as soon as weather permits...perhaps I should start looking for discarded wooden stairs somewhere. Not in the next few days though...the weather mavens are predicting the fabulous combo of rain/sleet/ice/snow for our area today and tomorrow. That's forced a cancellation of BUNCO this evening at one of the best cooks in the group's home. I guess it will be a quiet evening at home, looking at seed and garden catalogs, and wishing for Spring.

Love that dappled sunlight and of course the flowers. No spring here for many months, so I try not to think about it.

Such a romantic image...love it! Hang on now, we've got a ways to go until spring, but photos like that should be a big help.

This photo blurry or not looks so inviting. I too am lost in wintery weather and long for Spring. I bought some daffodils and tulips at the market yesterday so I could pretend.

Oh me too! I want spring and that photo looks so pretty! We've got that nasty snow/sleet thing today except that it's been mostly snow. Definitely a good day to be inside. ~ Lynda xo
