All Things Spring


You know it's truly spring when the orchards are on the verge of blossoming. Very soon the valley and hills will be twinkling with little pink and white flowers so deliciously beautiful that you'll want to walk down orchard row upon orchard row trying to take them all in.


Meet my new friend. She lives on a sheep farm down the road and she's fulfilling my desire to make new furry friends. My sweet adorable alpacas (here) have been moved to another field so the sheep are my new adorables to stop and say hello to. And she's the perfect kind of furry friend...completely squeezable!



Indoors, spring is shining brightly through the white ranunculus on our bedroom dresser.


And of course the heavenly pink ranunculus on my nightstand. Can you kiss a flower? What would Hubby think if I leaned over and kissed my ranunculus before we went to sleep at night? I'm afraid he'd think it was fairly normal behavior.


My new spring bonnet is the latest addition to my spring 'wardrobe'. I found it at an antique store and it simply made me smile. Do you think I should wear it on Easter? Do you think it will 'go' with jeans and a warm sweater?

Happy Easter dear friends.

Happy Easter Trina!

I know you've posted before about the flower farm that you go to often, but do you also grow your own flowers? Have I missed that post? I was just curious as to whether you bought those beautiful Ranunculus or if you picked them from your own garden.

Happy weekend!

Trina, Spring season is so beautiful in your area. I would love to have a sheep farm down the road, she is adorable. Have a very Happy Easter! Lori

Your furry new friend looks ready for spring also. Our trees already have leaves for the most part. The pecans are the last to bud. Have a wonderful Easter weekend!

Happy Spring Morning! The orchards and fields look heavenly! I can only imagine how beautiful they must shine when all the flowers bloom ~ it must be spectacular!
You absolutely must wear the bonnet on Easter - and make sure you go into town with it on. You will be the envy!
Happy Easter ~

I can almost smell the wet, muddy air. Growing up, my neighbors had a sheep--LambiePie--and they used to let him in the house. When the kids were little, they used to ride him around like a little pony and LambiePie seemed to love to oblige. Oh, I miss the country! Love the Easter bonnet and I'll bet you have an apron to match. Happy Easter! steve

Happy Easter! And I think it's perfectly acceptable to squeeze a sweet sheep or kiss the ranunculus!

Love the spring pictures! I don't think my husband would think it odd for me to kiss a flower! Happy Easter! Carla

Roseanna said...

Loved seeing the picture of the sheep. We sat out on our back porch last night watching the sheep and llamas in the pasture. Don't you just love spring!

Yes to the bonnet - you are a classic beauty and I think this will only add to your beautifulness - is that a word?

And how about a picture of you in it?!

Hi Trina,

Just wanted to wish you and your husband a very Happy and Safe Easter. I've been a bit naughty and called in and read your posts but not left comments. I've been trying to have a balance of not spending too much time on the computer and getting jobs etc., done....some days are better than others!! Anyway, will call in again soon.
Take care

Trina,
Looking like Springtime by you! Love that sheep, your flowers and your snappy chapeau! I hope you had chance to wear it today, but it would look nice with jeans too.
