i found it, i found it

I knew it was lurking out there somewhere.

I knew if I just cleaned the snow and ice off the ends of my binoculars I could see it.

Yes, there it is.



Oh spring, I knew you wanted me to find you.

Who knew you were hiding in plain sight at Trader Joe's.


And for only $2.49 I was able to bring you home and have you right here in my bedroom.


You look so pretty in my little basket. 

Now when I am sitting soaking up the sun with my flip flop clad feet on the window sill, I can gaze at your glorious yellow beauty. 

Ahhhh!!  such a simple little pleasure.

Note to the young couple I saw riding around with the top of their convertible down yesterday. 47 degrees is not warm. Put that top up before I tell your mother.

  8. And they are cancelling schools in GA like crazy because we're gonna get snow after having 55 degree weather today. Go figure! I love the flowers and the thought of you telling that young couple's mother just sent me into wild laughing fit which scared the cat.

  11. I'm glad you found spring and are enjoying the sun through your bedroom window. :) I'm still chuckling at that convertible. It was 36 here the other day (warm for us in January) and I saw people in shorts. Guys of course.

    1. I saw a man in his shorts at the grocery the other day and it was 10 degrees. He was definitely old enough to know better.

  12. I'm not sure what that is in Celsius but I bet it's not warm. I'm always in love with those little Tete ' a Tetes , after they are done, plant them in the garden, they will come back next year.

    1. It was definitely not warm enough to be riding around in a convertible. I will try and replant those if the ground ever thaws out.
