Tiny fingers picked a basketful of spring flowers this weekend... I hardly dare to hope that winter is gone for good. Snow has frosted the mountain tops and a thick mist hangs over the valley, over the brown and green fields that wait and hover for God to say that it's time to bloom.

Beautiful little blooms. How pretty!

Just commenting on another blog that spring is in the air -- although we may experience some winterish weather before it warms up for good.

Beautiful! And love the header shot too. Is that a French pine cone or a Texas one? :)

Winter is coming around. I drove to the north part of the state back to the south this weekend and it was a 20 degree difference. Looking for snow this weekend while I babysit again.

It will be here before we know it! Saturday here was lovely and then yesterday the skies were grey and a little snow fell but didn't stay. Today the sky is blue but the wind is cold. These flowers were a nice way to start the day! Enjoy.
