Yellow arrives at the farm

Finally enough warmth for the daffodils to open up at the farm. They are out in the field. How they got there I don't know.

Tulips about to open

A flowering shrub

a wounded tangle of forsythia

Bitters: dandelion leaves delicious in a salad

Kimmie sent me a lovely strip of muslin to hang at the Cloutie Well. The end is folded over to enclose a tea bag. Look at those lovely even, straight hand stitches. Thanks Kimmie.

Finally some color at the farm!
Seems like it's taken forever here as well.

The barefoot folks in Maine were nuts because it was chilly and windy, although sunny.

I'm gald you posted Kimmie's cloth. I needed a reminder!♥

So pretty! I particularly like the daffs with the red building peeking in from the upper left corner. Your spring is a lot more advanced than ours.

Oh Yeaaaaaa you are getting color and I love the contrast between the yellow daffs and the red barn. Lovely shot. Its only going to keep getting better.

They definitely help bring hope and courage to face the future!

Oh, the Cloutie Well looks fantastic...full of dreams and goals - my scarf should arrive today .....I am looking forward to having something of mine there a the well!

Happy to see you surrounded by spring colors! And we are fast approaching summer here in CA with temperatures of 90 degrees promised for later this week! Yikes. I love spring best!
Yes Kimmie's stitches are uniform and great for your hanging flags.
