Spring at Last


I can hardly believe spring is finally on our doorstep. It's been a very long Michigan winter. And although it doesn't seem much more springy outside, we've officially bid farewell to winter.

Something Cicely Mary Barker (who channels spring with her brush, like nobody's business) seemed perfect for the occasion. I love this odd little snail parade of hers! I can just hear them saying, "Spring - that away."

A Happy Springtime to you!

    1. It seems like the longest-winter-ever. I thought spring would never come. So happy it's here now! Yes, C.M. Barker has such lovely work!
