The Glories of Spring!

Spring brings many things
like tea on the porch...
digging dogs...
stick chewing...
squirrel watching!
"Did someone say squirrel?"
Kramer watches from inside.
But spring also brings glorious blooms.
Daylillies and Amarillas burst forth in bold shades of color.
Let's get up close and personal...
(you gotta love a great camera:)!
Flowers spill from an old terra cotta pot.
Please remember to pray for those whose spring has been interrupted by devestating storms.
Next week I will begin sending out invitations to all those in blogland who would like to take part in a tea party honoring Queen Victoria:)!

Hi Kim! May you have a wonderful week-end!

You get the best pics of your sweet pets. So much personality.

It's rainy here today, but the serious storms have gone around us this week.

Stick chewing, must be a sort of teething thing for dogs....or it cleans their teeth.. ?

So many beautiful flowers. I am giggling at your digging dogs because it wasn't 30 minutes ago that I just had a run in with my golden, she is a bad girl. I went shopping and let her out when I got home and away she went. I knew she was chasing my baby rabbit, they play a game but she would really like to get him. I put my groceries away and she is barking at the door to get in...WHoa!!!!! You should have seen all four paws, I know she wasn't digging for gold, it was clumps of mud with grass sticking out, in between her toes. I had to get a bucket and let each paw sit in there and still had to keep pulling clumps of mud off that goofy girls paws. Grrrrr...She is in now...LOL...

I love all the antics of your sweet furry babes. They are sooo cute!
I love seeing all the pretty things you are able to grow where you live. I cannot believe that you have daylilies already!
Isn't it fun seeing how different each of our gardens mature and bloom?

PAPER GIRL said...

thanks so much for stopping by, and your kind words about my art. Love all your BEAUTIFUL close up shots of the flowers, and the teapot... Just thinking of tea on the porch takes me back.

I am in Indiana again, for awhile. Please prayer for my Mama too. She having major surgery this coming Wednesday...

Can't wait for the info about the Queen Victoria TEA. I believe this is were you and I first met! (The blogland tea a year ago?? feels like a lifetime, so much has happen. Since I am in Indy will have to use my Mother's tea things -- looking forward).

Have a blessed Sunday.

Your doggies are so cute, digging and chewing sticks! Poor Kramer has to enjoy spring from the window. Your flowers are so very beautiful, and yes, your photographs are amazing... it's not the camera, it's the person behind the camera!

Kim, Your dogs and cat are just adorable! Beautiful photos on your blog too!

We are just beginning to enjoy Spring here in Ontario. It is so appreciated after winter :)
