Have I mentioned how much I love spring........... :)













Spring has finally come to New England.........



I got to spend awhile in the Magic Wings Garden.........





The best use for banana peels ever......


A selfie with butterfly in my hair.......

You talkin' to me.........




 Second largest moth in the world.... Pic doesn't do it justice......



Tiny quail were running around the underbrush......

The colors didn't even seem real ......


When this one opens it's wings-- it's the most incredible color blue.......




Never pass up a chance to go to a butterfly house....... have a beautiful day....

So much going on!!


My friends greenhouses are open today.....
They had their doors closed to keep the rainy cold out--but inside the wood stoves were pumping out heat and the flowers-colors- smells of dirt and blossoms were fantastic!!!  I managed only to buy a few for now- indoors and outdoors everyday is a little much!!

Been busy with important things..... Like getting tattoos!!
Reading books......

Decorating Easter eggs........

Oh my....... Fabulous news....... This grand (& her mom and dad!) are moving back home in a couple months!!  
You might say we are excited!!!

Everyone is excited!!
Now finding an apartment.. That's an adventure!!

Always keep in mind our soldiers.....
It's guard weekend for this little guys daddy.... This is a photo taken when he was only a few months old.....
Plus remember all the soldiers in harms way..... far away from their families......

Have a great week--Rain

Packing my little truck for the drive back to Maine.......


Am I nuts you say.........


Could well be........


The suns too bright to get a good shot of this bourganvilla tree- but I think u get the idea.......... It's beyond beautiful....


I'm sitting here in the last chair to pack up... Dreading the cold ahead.....



 I made a commitment to a friend .... (This is a friend and her cousin-it's an example of good friends!!) And we know that's one of the important things in life..... Next to family.....so I must head out.....


Postcard says it all........

The smell of the orange groves when we took a ride into back country Florida.....
it was unbelievable!!!




But this is also what's waiting for me at Holme......⛄️⛄️⛄️⛄️⛄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️



---------not this yet--------


On the road before the dawn breaks....

Color-color-color.....................





I got the spray paint out again..........



Found a quilting group.........
       getting me motivated to get back in the swing 
       of quilting--fabrics- colors-creativity- laughing
             women- it's a good thing......


          
Teaching each other........



We were always told never to use yellow in quilts...
Now these are beautiful with the yellow?!?......


 
I love this little house quilt........

I'll be there on Monday..... Now I need to get going to
Finish up my 3 day marathon scrapbooking event.... And it's still dark out
I don't like the time change....... I'm a morning person !!!!!

Have a great day!
