Welcome Spring!

And Spring arose on the garden fair,
Like the Spirit of Love felt everywhere;
And each flower and herb on Earth's dark breast
rose from the dreams of its wintry rest.

~Percy Bysshe Shelley

Only a few more hours and it will officially be SPRING! I can't wait, I had to make a quick blog post with some photos that remind me of one of the most wonderful times of the year. Can't wait to get out there and play in my garden. I have to get some onions, peas, lettuce and spinach seeds to plant this weekend. There are all sorts of veggies that don't mind growing in cool weather.

Still haven't been able to paint. I'm feeling much better but still have a horrible cough. Worked on a commission some today but since I haven't painted in 2 weeks it's taking me a bit longer than usual. That and my 3 year old is in the me, me, me phase and really doesn't like me getting anything done. How much longer is it until she's in kindergarten?

Well, onto the photos and then a few blog awards I've been given recently.

Pictures of my last horse when he was just 5 days old. Boy, I miss him. He was all head and legs then!

Longwood Gardens, one of the most beautiful places on earth!

I want to thanks the following wonderful bloggers for my most recent awards:

I love spring too, and your horse as a foal was so handsome! I can't wait for spring to get here and then I too will be out planting and getting my hands dirty in good, honest country soil!

Love the photos, the baby is so sweet! I hear ya about not being able to paint when you're sick. I couldn't work on that dog portrait for a couple weeks there, but finally felt good enough to finish it this week, yay!

Happy Equinox and Springtime Blessings to you, Jen!
