Dreaming of Spring

I was going through some old pictures and found this one of springtime in my garden.....
the pillow stepping stones were a great find for me....I showed them a while back...

I found the stepping stones at Ohmega Salvage Co. the same place where I found my new old Victorian Mirror that I am going to re do..........I go to work in the dark and come home in the dark.....I guess I'm dreaming of springtime......and the time change....I love it when it gets dark later.....

spring will be here before we know it.....
Enjoy your day,
Mo :-)

What a beautiful garden and I love those pillow stepping stones :0).
I also enjoy the longer daylight hours and just mentioned to my hubbs that our days are getting longer. At least here. Today we are blessed with spring like weather. It's in the 80s today and tomorrow and that back into the 70s over the weekend. Here's hoping Father Winter will soon end for you and Sweet Spring will be all around you.

I went through a lot of your blog last night, I saw these pictures of your lovely garden. Oh, but I did not notice the old hand water pump. I love it!

Hi Mo,
Your garden looks so pretty. I love the pillow stepping stones. I too thought they were real pillows.
I got so lucky at Lowes the other day. They were going to toss some snapdragons and petunia and I got them for 6 cents each...yeah! Now to get them planted and hope a freeze doesn't hit us again.
Hugs
Becky

Hi Mo! I love the painted cottage you have for your header picture, it's gorgeous! The photo's of your garden during spring are just lovely too. The pillow stepping stones are awesome, I've never seen them before. It's funny that you are dreaming of spring, and I am here anxiously awaiting our hot aussie summer to come to an end! Sending some warmer weather your way and wishing you a happy day!

Good Morning Beautiful Mo,
I am just now getting around to Thursday's postings.
I know when I use to work twelve hour shifts, I hated it when they set our time back for that very reason...it is dark when you left for work and dark when you came home...you could not enjoy your yard at all.
I love, love your yard and those pillow stones...I don't think too many people would have those...so sweet...I am so anxious to see more pictures of your yard. What was really funny about our morning glories was that people thought we had ordered the seeds from some fancy seed company and we bought the seeds at the Dollar General Store. They were so much prettier in person...the blue was almost neon....so very pretty.
You have a wonderful day.
hugs
debbie

At first I thought those were real pillows and thought "What? Pillows out in the yard?" Then I realized they are stones to look like pillows. I can tell that is so you. Here sunset today is at 5:30! Yay! Sunrise at 7;16am. That means 10 hours and 14 mins of daylight. We are getting there!

Hello Mary Lou said...

Mo, I have never seen stepping stones, looking like pillows-so cute. Your garden is lovely. I'm also looking forward to spring to enjoy the flowers and everything else that goes with spring. I also want to start my painting projects. Can't Wait!!

Mo, your garden is beautiful and those stepping stones, they are just you! I posted a couple of pics of our snow. I shoveled that sidewalk. This was a dry snow so it wasn't so bad. We don't often get this much snow at once. I had two snow days at home and didn't get a thing done! Your garden pictures were a great reminder that spring will come.

Yes, the days are getting longer! Today, here, it was 5:00 p.m. and it was still a little light out. I don't want to wish my life away, gosh, it's going by fast enough, but I'll be glad when winter is over, too. I am a gardener, too, and spend most of my free time outside. My DBF has to coax me in at night by making dinner for me. I've been out there many nights and I come in and realize it's dark out there! Your garden is beautiful and the pillows are to die for!

Hi Mo!
I'm trying to catch up on visiting and have enjoyed looking through your past post sooo much! Your sofa slip cover turned out so gorgeous!! You did such a great job on it. And your bedroom canopy over your bed is awesome. Everything is always so beautiful here. I loved seeing some spring photos! We really need that!!

Have a great weekend! Hugs, Sherry
