Touches of Spring ~

...a most welcome sight!!

my 'persuaded' forsythia & pussy-willows are beginning to bloom!
{I dislike using the word 'forced', so 'persuaded' it is…}

I cannot wait for the gardens to stir to life again this year ~
I have big plans for new plants, new colors and some neat garden decor ideas…

I have always loved houseplants too,
my Mom & Sisters all have green thumbs when it comes to houseplants…
me? not so much, but I do keep a few alive ;)


some kind of succulent ~ any idea?

a corner of our Keeping Room off the kitchen ~

Your farmhouse really is taking on a spring air m'dear!
SO nice to see. A bit up North here in Ohio we are getting a bit more snow. At least we've had some sunny days and they ARE getting longer! Have a happy day!! L

The days are gradually getting longer and Spring will come. Love all of your springy touches to the farm house. Also love your new header. Looks great!

Your home is so warm and welcoming. I love all your baskets too. We think alike, I have a bunch of forsythia being "gently persuaded" to bring some spring into the house also.

I persuaded some forsythia and a few daffodils too Lori - they really brightened my thoughts. :) blessings, marlene

Lori...I think your little succulent might be called Purslane. It's in the Portulaca family (like Moss Rose)
