the peepers are awake...

"Ere yet the earliest warbler wakes, of coming spring to tell,
From every marsh a chorus breaks, a choir invisible,
As if the blossoms underground, a breath of utterance had found. -Tabb"
From Handbook of Nature Study by Anna Botsford Comstock

The spring weather is here and while taking my walk up the lane I heard the chorus of the spring peepers. It has to be one of my most favorite sounds, as it means spring has really truly arrived.
I took some cutters with me in hopes of finding pussy willows, which I did. I cut a basketful, gathered eggs, and found some good reading in the mailbox...

Now at least I've done a little spring decorating...

I want you to know I appreciate all your kind comments. I have a sewing order to fill so I may be absent more than usual, but will catch up with you all soon!

    I love your blog! It makes me smile. It is very inspiring. I forget about all the great things that happen during spring. I live in AZ and we pretty much have the same weather year around.

  20. Thank you for your kindness sweet blogger :) We cant believe it ourself..it`s just madness. My sister is totally broken and my heart hurts for her. Yesterday she couldnt talk taht much with me, and she is exhausted. But we are a very big family with lots of warmth and she has the best man ever. I hope we all can give her the best support. She lives by minut by minut. I hope time wil heal....I want to wish you and your loveones the best for this weekend and upcoming easter, and take very good care of each other!!
    Thats very important. Love from Aina
