Welcome, Spring!

"It is the first mild day of March;
    Each minute sweeter than before.
 The redbreast sings from the tall larch
    That stands beside our door."

~William Wordsworth

Baking on a lovely Spring day and looking forward to a cup of coffee on the porch swing.
Wishing all of you a refreshing breath of Spring air to renew your spirits.

Blessings for St. Patrick's Day

St. Patrick's Day is an enchanted time - 
a day to begin transforming winter's dreams into summer's magic.  

~Adrienne Cook

May the magic begin today!

Dreams of Flowers

~ William Wordsworth

Longing for the first Roses of Spring and dreaming in Cake...

Queen Anne's Lace Cakes: Welcome, Spring.

Queen Anne's Lace Cakes: Welcome, Spring.

Welcome, Spring.

"The stormy March is come at last,
    With wind, and cloud, and changing skies...
Yet though thy winds are loud and bleak,
    Thou art a welcome month to me...
Thou ring'st the hope of those calm skies,
    And that soft time of sunny showers,
When the wide bloom, on earth that lies,
    Seems of a brighter world than ours."

~ William Cullen Bryant

Longing to browse my gardens and find these sweet little bluebells ringing merrily back at me. Soon. Very soon.
