  7. pretty pretty PRETTY!!! (which is why I haven’t let the dudes eat a single bite of the flowers, which I’m keeping around for cheery Easter decor. the clams, however, they happily consumed) 🙂

  8. I bought flowers for my house just to feel the signs of spring…it was a nice day now we are in rain…..I guess it’s better than snow! Happy Monday!

  9. Oh the talent dripping from your fingertips!! Those are just gorgeous!! Makes me want to see the beauty in Spring more. I just hate seeing the long hot days of summer knocking!! I’m really more of a fall girl!
