A Little Spring Weather

lily from a bouquet on my desk


Today included a cloudless blue sky, bright sunshine and a high temperature of  62F.
I cracked the kitchen window just a little, opened the blinds and heard birds singing!
A couple more days of this weather and this winter-loving girl is going to get spring fever!
I have to admit that it put a little spring in my step!

What kind of weather did you have today?

  6. Can.Not.Wait. for flowers in the flowerbeds! The scents, the feeling of the petals on my skin...love flowers! Hubby is taking me to the Philly flower show on Friday :) We had lots of sunshine and blue skies today too. Thursday is to be in the high 60's! Bring it on! Makes it difficult though to stay indoors to get the Spring cleaning done!

    1. Oh, the flower show will be fun!

  8. Lovely photograph! I've got spring fever; we've had a few days in the 70s. I even had thoughts of taking the plastic cover off my deck umbrella but know that, if I do that, a storm will come for sure.

    3. it was still a bit chilly, but the sun was wonderful. It had a new look to it...not like a winter sun, but bright and slanting into the house this morning. Lovely. And I got so much done around the house. Love those kind of days!

      Delete
  14. Spring weather? We have yet to have winter weather here! Although there was something a lot more "cheerful" about today. Maybe the sun shone just a tad bit brighter.

    Enjoy your spring weather :)

  17. It was mostly cloudy & windy & a bit gloomy here.
    It was nice yesterday(Monday)...Sunday was the most springlike day...upper 50's.
    Is you lily yellow? I love the smell they have.
    I bought myself a lavender colored hyacinth the other day(since none will be coming up for months). It smells "yummy" and is the largest I have seen.
