Spring Wreath




I especially like the pussy willows!
It's not warm enough to do most of the things on my
Spring Fun To Do List yet, but I did get this one checked!
It was made by this Etsy shop.

    1. Thank you! At least one thing looks springy around here! ;)
      I believe Gloria scared him away! She got on him one night and
      he never returned. I thought he might have gone to visit you! haha.

      Delete
    2. Betsy! You think I scared him?
      Not way ha!
      Only talk with him one time:(

      Delete
    3. Yes, you did! Ask Eddie! lol...

    4. ROFL
      It was you Gloria!
      You are so frightening!! LOL
      You told him Betsy was like a sister to you and shouted "extraviarse"
      You would never say that to me would you? lol
      LOL

      Delete
    5. Eddie? Why nobody told me ?
      I really never think I bothered him.
      Im sorry.

      Delete
    6. Omy! I said that because he said something about doll and I said fox call her so.

      Delete
    7. Oh, don't be sorry! He was getting creepy!

      Delete
    8. I wouldn't worry about it, Gloria.
      No need to apologise I am sure and
      Betsy's heart is certainly not broken! lol
      And I am joking a bit as well.
      You didn't say "extraviarse"
      but he might have thought you did.
      Betsy will explain but she is probably
      doing the washing up right now.
      I sent you an email today.

      Delete
    9. lol...no, my heart is not broken!
      He was being a little bit like a stalker.
      I'm glad you scared him off! ha.

      Delete

    I though we would make a lemon meringue pie and a chocolate pie for James' birthday but we ended up with two chocolates instead. Now I've got a craving for lemon.

    1. I'm not quite sure what it is about pussy willows. Maybe it's because I remember them as a child. And they are so unique. I've said for years I wanted one growing in my yard. I really need to get one! I should have put that on my fun spring to do list!

  22. Something about pussy willows... I used to rub their furry little bodies too! And cat-tails as well. So soft. Do you know the Gordon Lightfoot song "Pussywillows, Cat-tails?" If not... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=towEg9j5K4k
