Finally!

After many, many months...

of looking this way...

...and looking that way...

... of always sleeping...

... with one eye open...

of waiting, and waiting, and waiting...

...until you have no more "wait" left in you...

... of looking through...

... every window, for the smallest sign ...

...until you feel like climbing the walls ...

... or the windows ...

... because all you see is this.

 F . I  . N . A . L . L .Y

... beautiful, glorious ....

... S P R I N G ....

... has arrived in New England...

HAPPY SPRING, EVERYONE!!!!

Donna

That's what I say! I live in Boston and just got back from a walk to the grocery store...and....wait for it...I'm HOT!!! Spring at last, YAY!!!

My irises are coming up, too. I love love love them, although it's really difficult to weed them with their killer roots. But who cares? It's SPRING!!!

Donna, you took the most wonderful photos of Baby! She is very photogenic, isn't she? Yes, Spring is finally here! Although today is a bit rainy, I won't complain!

Thank you, my friend, for the information on Cambridge and thrift shopping!

YIPEE!!!! I feel the same way, Donna! I spent all weekend and yesterday AND today outside working in the gardens, floofing my front porch and back deck, and painting some projects that were waiting in the basement all winter! Doesn't it feel great to be back out in the sunshine again and see things greening up? :)

Donna, Thanks for asking about the picture on the office wall. It isn't a Don Austen. I wish it were but it's just one of those pictures from Hobby Lobby. I'd love original art work, and have a few pieces, but that isnt' one of them. Do Austen's work sounds just up my alley, but I can't find much about him online.
Thanks for visiting,
~Babs

You do have the most beautiful cat.
I love all the photos you post of Baby. What a sweet and funny cat.
Smiles to you and Baby.

Oh how I know the feeling.

Spring has not sprung in my hometown yet, but still waiting.

Happy Spring to you.
