garden centers that smell like freshly cut flowers, dew and soil

bistro boards with lovely lunch menus scrawled on them

 peeling paint on white picket fences

rusty tomato cages

seed catalog dreams realized

buttercream yellow pottery bowls for mixing pancake batter

lavender linen spray

newly installed clotheslines

herb starts in chipped antique teacups

watering cans

french wire trellises and plant stands

an array of English teacups for $1 in an old out building

croissant sandwiches, cookies and tea fireside with a friend

antiquing in a sleepy Mississippi river town…

    What beautiful pictures! I love spring. It used to be one of my least favorite seasons but these past several years I just love early spring. The buds are beginning to awake and everything is so fresh after a long winters nap. I guess spring wasn’t always my favorite since here in NY it can be beautiful one day and snowing the next. But still spring is beautiful and so are your lovely pictures! Have a beautiful spring weekend! 🙂

      Thanks Jennifer! I love spring too. Minnesota is pretty unpredictable so we enjoy these gorgeous early spring days when we can. Thanks so much for stopping by! xo

    I love the tan earthen ware mixing bowls in the third photo. They remind me of my grandmother’s house in Ireland. Spring is really in the air and these photos just reinforce the wonderful feeling of renewal that spring always brings.
