Morning to all!

With the wonderful weather teasing us–it seems that Spring is just around the corner!Daffodils

I’m seeing signs of Nature waking up, with buds and even some blossoms cautiously peeking out. It’s so exciting to see the new growth!

I took a nature walk yesterday, just to check out the current wildflower situation. I only saw a couple actual flower varieties, but I saw plenty of buds. Spring is definitely coming!

Purple crocuses

Take the time to check out what’s blooming around you. It seems that for some flowers, if you blink, you’ll miss their show!


Have a wonderful day, and thanks for coming by!

We’ve been making strides in our cabin. Check out the latest updates on our YouTube channel. I’ll link them below.


And a peek into life around here lately.

  2. Happy Wednesday. We are in for a bit of crazy weather. Nasty wind storm tonight. I am looking forward to spring. Haven’t seen the crocuses popping up yet which are usually that first sign that despite the snow on the ground they are demanding Spring come.

    Thanks for hosting.
