This morning there is a nip in the air and the fireplace holds a warming fire...but after the record setting temperatures the last few weeks, our Spring has definitely arrived earlier than normal. The ice has completely vanished from our pond.
Geese, ducks and even a naughty muskrat have returned to make their seasonal home.
The house has made it through another Wisconsin northwoods winter and our snow weary eyes greet budding weeping willows with much pleasure.
Donning a cozy fleece jacket and a pair of garden clippers, I headed out to the little garden under our sunroom windows...with a warm, southern exposure, the daffodils have all ready started to bloom and a small bunch begged to be gathered for an inside bouquet.
Tucked in next to the thyme plants, a little yellow pansy turns its face to the sun..I was also pleased to see that the Siberian Wallflowers made it and the Lupine plants which were started from seeds brought back from Alaska in 2010 look very strong.Like old friends returning, it does a gardener's heart good...
And this cute border pattern needs to go onto some special dishtowels.
On to the table of "Good Intentions."
Progress has been made - the first Cherry Tree quilt border is done and the 2nd one is in the works...
And another beautiful book has been received - a gift from one of our stitching Buds - thank you, Jean! I want to try every recipe!!!
Though things appear to be on the quiet side at Taylorsoutback, there is much afoot and as the weeks unfold, I will be sharing more stories...
In the meantime...wishing you a daffodil-filled week
