Happy First Day Of Spring


It maybe cold out for the first day of spring today but the sun is shining and there is a dusting of snow on the ground . Miggs and I went for our walk this morning then played in the back yard and I took some photos .

SPRING 2013 (1 of 1)-29

The birdies know it is now spring time as they were happily feeding , singing and chatting away !


                          Oh look my Hyacinth's are beginning  to pop  above  the ground now !

SPRING 2013 (1 of 1)-27

                                                              So are my Daffodils !


                                  The birdies were very busy at the feeders this morning !


                                 They were all flapping about and pushing each other around .


                                         And some were even sharing with each other !

SPRING 2013 (1 of 1)-28

                                       Miggs and I were having fun playing ball !


                                      Starlings also hogging the suet and scoffing !


A bit of spring colour inside to ! These two pieces I got from the dollar store . I love the dollar store !

So regardless of it being cold and maybe the odd dusting of snow there are many signs that spring is pushing through !

                                   Until next time  hope you have a good day !

                                      Thanks For Popping By !

Happy Spring.....more like the first day of Winter here...but the sun is shining at least.......Poor flowers, sad but I think they are all the birds at the feeder, pretty, and of coarse Beautiful Miggs in action.....Blessings Francine.

I always love to check in and feel connected to your part of the country! First day of Spring in Middle Tennessee is a little bit "Springier" but still cold. I can't wait for the flowers to blossom but also hope they wait long enough to not get zapped by a late freeze. I also love your dollar store finds! Gives me inspiration to get creative!

Cold and windy with occasional snow here today...but the fire is toasty and spring can't be that far off...can it?

Happy Spring I found it a bit nippy out there and we have a fair amount of snow. I cannot believe you have flowers coming up very nice. B
