Signs of Spring









Hi all. Just a very quick post today as I am leaving shortly for Moncton for the NB Gathering of the Guilds. This is a gathering of representatives from all our quilting guilds in the province, held every second year. We get together to share ideas, challenges and see if we can brainstorm to solve common problems and issues. It's always very inspirational and a good deal of fun as well. So, all my bags are packed, I'm ready to go.... ♫♫  (I'm just not leaving on a jet plane... ha!)













With the nice weather we've had this week, I've tried to get some work done outside, and am happy to say I have the leaf mulch all cleaned off four of my five big beds and things are sprouting up! The daffodils are up and budded, they'll be in bloom by next week I expect, the tulips are budded too, but smaller. Some of the perennials are poking through already, and some of the small bulbs are already blooming - chionodoxa, crocus and scilla.










So it looks like spring has finally arrived. (We won't discuss the foot+ of snow that Newfoundland got this week, okay? ... sure hoping that doesn't happen here...)


So hope you enjoy these few spring-y photos huriedly taken around the hacienda this morning....















Peace,
Linda


"The naked earth is warm with Spring,
And with green grass and bursting trees
Lean to the sun's kiss glorying,
And quivers in the sunny breeze."

Have fun at your get-together! Sounds like a good time. Your flowers are all very pretty. We went to a national park and did several wildflower hikes earlier this week. Love SPRING!!!!!

Wonderful signs of spring, even the threads (in the header photo) are happily green. :)
Enjoy the gathering and the lovely season!
I don't manage to see the first of the photos, but I trust it's as beautiful as the others. (I'll pop back to see it later.)
Big hugs!

What pretty flowers! You are enjoying your bursts of spring, while we are finally rejoicing that the heat of summer is fading......not completely gone, but nowhere near as bad.

Oh just loved seeing your blooms and the colours appear so vibrant. Mine are still in the pre-bud phase with our cool temperatures (freezing overnight) continuing. But soon! Love your quilts too!!
