Cool spring day

Today is the first full day of spring. Standing at the back of the great room looking toward the barn the sky looked like spring. Puffs of clouds drifting across an aquamarine colored sky. I stepped out onto the deck wearing only a tee shirt. It only took a moment to realize that I  was under dressed. I stepped back to my closet to grab a sweatshirt and hat.

We had a good walk. The dogwoods are beginning to bloom. The next warm day and they'll be out in force. I saw tiny white and purple flowers at the base of an oak beside the walking path. They were so small, I was afraid the photograph wouldn't look good, but I think it will do in a pinch.

When I returned, I sat down with my laptop to write my column that runs Sunday. Some Wednesday's I struggle coming up with a topic, but Jilda gave me an excellent ideal last night so this morning I knocked out 600 words in about 20 minutes. I love it when that happens.


  1. This picture is so pretty and full of spring hope which we need here. Congrats on writing and being so constructive

  2. Our spring sprigs are currently under 10 inches of wet snow, which will probably be gone by Friday. The snow, the sprigs will still grow.

  3. Those tiny flowers are lovely.
    I hope Spring moves in more completely soon.

  4. Writing is easy when we get inspired and thank goodness you had Jilda to inspire you.
    I don't recognize those cute little spring flowers. I wonder what they are called...
    We're waiting for another snow storm.
    Hugs, Julia

  5. How wonderful to see anything blooming ! Those wee flowers are precious indeed. Wonderful too that Jilda provided some inspiration for you ! You are blessed.

  6. Those flowers look a bit like Creeping Jenny. My grandfather hated it because it will quickly take over and strangle out other vegetation.

  7. Pretty flowers! Spring will get here eventually and I'll look forward to finding posies along the way!

  8. Nice to get an enjoyable assignment and interesting also. Sounds great.
