Old Spring photos. :)

After-math of that hideous snow storm we just lived through.
Close to 50 cm of fresh snow fell on Ottawa and the surrounding areas. We got our fairshare at the mouse-house.

 I've decided I can't stand this dreary, dark, wet and cold time of year another day. I need colour, warmth and the smell of Spring.
And, so does this black bird.

So, I went through some of my old Spring photos and want to share them with you. 
What makes me happy?
Pretty dishes, gorgeous flowers and beautiful cats.

The world is filled with beauty.
 daisies; the happiest flower on earth.

Now I feel better.
that was fun so I think I will look for more photos.

Spring begins March 20th
that's not far off.

Enjoy your day,


  1. Deb dear, such a HUGE amount of snow - I really feel for you. However, underneath that heavy white blanket Spring WILL soon be stirring - how blessed that makes us feel! I already see daffodil buds among the leaves growing taller each day - and send them you virtually, lol!

    Lovely photos - that makes sense to look back at other years and see what's to come - and soon you'll be taking new ones!

    Stay warm and cozy - hugs, Mary x

  2. I hear birds chirping this morning, something that doesn't happen when it's the darkest, coldest part of Winter. That means Spring is coming! Yay! Love your photos!

  3. I don't think we've had that much snow in decades here. Now the shovelling begins, eh?

    By the way, what species of flower is that in the cup? It looks like a violet with the colours reversed. One or two grew in my front lawn at my old house.

    1. Thank you. You can tell I'm not floral-minded, though, as the man said about art, "I know what I like".

  5. We really did get hammered by it. I did my share of shoveling when I got home last night. A lot of people are digging out this morning, and most of the sidewalks are left as they are.

  6. And here is so heat... our Summer is terrible.

  7. What a lovely collection of porcelain you have! Wow, so much snow has fallen. Stay warm there!

  8. Drooling at your chintz in your cupboard! And yes, spring isn't too far away -- only about a month! We can do it! Loved the photos!

  9. Oh WOW ! you got tons of snow . Not for us it has been mild and sunny so far our snow now is melting we are to have rain for Friday and temps to rise to +6 . Lovely photos , hope it warms up for you up there soon and the snow starts to melt . Thanks for sharing , Have a good day !

  10. We go back and forth...a little ice and cold, then warm temperatures and sunshine. Daffodils are up, but the beds look soggy. Lots of work ahead of me with Spring coming, XOXO

  11. I love these photos!! 32 days until Spring.....:)

  12. And Daylight Savings begins March 13th. Getting closer all the time. Bess from Massachusetts

  13. Nothing says spring like daisies

  14. Thanks for the great pictures! They sure brightened up my day!

  15. Love your choice of photos....

    Linda :o)

  16. Such wonderful photos. I feel better! I hope you can get a break in the weather soon and that spring will come a little early for you, too.


  17. Such pretty pictures! I love that blue/white cup and saucer. And the red handled cups!

  18. So pretty - love your tea-cups <3 It won't be long now......x Karen

  19. Such beautiful pictures!! I had to laugh at the cat and the violets. I have a beautiful African violet...well, it WOULD be beautiful if the princess Posie cat didn't eat EVERY flower before it even blooms out completely!!! If I put it way up high where she knows she isn't supposed to go....she sits up there and CATerwauls until I go get her down.
    Blessings to you,
