What was once will be again

It’s windy today and overcast.
Not everyones idea of the perfect Spring Day.
But it’s not raining……


This was a photo I took last year…….
Soon it will be beautiful out with blue skies and warmer temperatures
...... just like the day I took this picture

…..and we’ll be busy.

I hope:) 
and I will be ready for it.

I think ? :)

Are you ready for Spring???

No...but I've got a list. Does that count?

Laura @ 52 FLEA said...

Nope. I can't even find my ducks.
They must be here somewhere!

Hi Carole, All ducks in a row - that sounds cute :-). Let's see. One, two, three, four, five. Oh darn, two are missing. One is the window cleaning duck. She doesn't like her job and prefers to hide. I have to search for her and let her clean the windows next week. They look just awful when the sun shines. Then the little Christmas decoration duck seems to have fallen asleep somewhere, even though a tiny Christmas tag is still hanging in the living room. She must have forgotten to take it down. Wait a second - I will just remove it for her. O.k., I'm back, mission completed and duck number six has her place in the row :-).
It had been sunny but not too warm lately. Very slowly the trees start to bud over here. I'm looking forward to seeing the fruit trees bloom.
Hopefully lovely spring weather will soon come to CT and bring you lots of customers.
Have a wonderful Sunday, my dear friend!

I am so ready for spring!! High winds here and still 32 degrees or so in the evening and early morning! Sigh!!

Barb said...

What a lovely photo, wish I could send you some of our 80 degree + temps from Texas. Ü
Happy Sunday,

I am so behind this year but am happy anyway!
We spent the day at our campground opening up our trailer ~ stocking it for the season and cleaning our site. Can't wait til the 29th ~ that first campfire is going to be so great!

Gorgeous photo, Carole! I love it!

It turned out to be a great day here. A few sprinkles but definitely garden worthy. My husband even worked on a woodworking project for me! Maybe at some point I'll blog about it.

Winter is gone, gone, gone!!!

I am so ready for Spring! If this rain would stop for more than a few minutes I might be able to get some work done.....

Shannon said...

I am COMPLETELY ready for Spring! :-D
Just wanted to let you know that there's a giveaway going on right now on my blog, featuring a gorgeous, eco-friendly bracelet made out of recycled magazine and water bottles! Hope to see you there!
Have and great day and God bless,

I won't get my ducklings till the end of May but I have 26 chicks in my basement right now. I am so very READY for the REAL Spring. Love your picture, it gives me hope.

Serendipity Chic Design said...

Well, it seems like spring is never going to arrive here in CT! I'll just have to keep checking your blog and photos for some inspiration...

Take care,

What ducks....
It is cold, cold and more cold here, and did I mention rain..,no? Well it has been pouring here, raining, fogy and everything in between. What the heck is going on?
Bet you, we will jump right into a very hot summer again!
Well, it all sort of matches my mood...but that is another story to be told.
The pretty flowers in your post are giving me a boost.
I wish you and George a happy Easter,
lots of love and hugs,
Evi and Ebbie
PS. The mag was really nice this time. Thanks and put me down for the next one.
What fleamarket did you go to...was it the Elephants Trunk?

Poppy said...

Hello Carole, we are having a really hot spell at the moment!
I thought of you today when I was planting some baskets up......

I hope you have a fab Easter!

Renée Finberg said...

you will be ready.
and i wish you a bang up season!

Rebecca said...

Hi Carole
My ducks are never in a row... and probably never will be.
But with that said, I have been waiting on spring and I am starting to get a little impatient. We are still seeing snow here, ugh!
Wishing you a glorious season!

Pamela said...

My ducks have been standing in their row for quite some time. They're actually tired of it. Ha! So happy I stumbled on to your blog. I sure am enjoying it.

Hoping your resurrection Sunday is filled with joy,

vicki said...

Carole- what a gorgeous summertime photo! Aren't we all just so so anxious for the beautiful weather to finally get here and STAY! It's been the same for us- beautiful one day- then freezing cold and rain the next!

When it finally is here to stay- I have lots to do for sure. I'm so looking forward to digging in the dirt~~
