Spring dreaming

Living in the pacific northwest, we see signs of the approach of Spring much earlier then in my home state of Michigan. By the end of this month, I'll be cutting heavily budding branches off my white quince for forcing indoors and creating small bouquets of camelias for the table and the snow bells are already poking up. Yes, there's rain, but the color of that new growth just waiting to burst forth is a fair trade in my mind.

          I created this collection in appreciation of what's to come. 
                                        I am so ready!
     You can get a close look at each lovely item in this treasury here.


  1. that explains this juicy treasury, it feels ready to burst! thanks again for including me betsy :)

  2. Thank you for the reminder that, yes we're so very close to seeing buds pop. I think my silly daffodils are starting to show their heads. Today has been so dark and grey sometimes it's hard to wait for spring here in the pacific northwest!

  3. Yes! I saw little daffodils blooming a week ago in someone's garden!

  4. I can see the quince colours. How lovely and inspiring.
