Spring flowers.





Just wanted to share these sweet pics of Ava as she picked some little flowers yesterday. I think spring is finally here in west Michigan. It's taken awhile longer than usual, but it's still nice to have it arrive.
These other flowers are some of my favorite from Basic Grey (scrapbookers know who I'm talking about here) and in honor of National Scrapbooking Day (yes, there is a day for scrapbooking!) I thought I'd post a little something that sits on my counter and gets used often. Nothing like combining two passions...paper products and Satrbucks- to get a custom tumbler. =) Have a great weekend!
Tell me what the weather is like at your house today! We'll compare 'springs'.

as usual- it's instant summer here in central indiana.
but absolutely wonderous- warm, not too humid, partly sunny and gloriously fragrant with the blooming and blossoming flora...

In the past four days we have ranged from 50 degrees to above 80, rain to sun, windy to humid. Today is overcast but mild and tomorrow is suppose to be sunny and 75!

Today in Western NY it is beautiful and sunny and in the mid 60's but with a chilly breeze - and I am inside in a room with NO windows because I work on Saturdays. It is supposed to linger and get even warmer over the next 2 days, so I will have wonderful weather for my "weekend" (and I did get to slip outside for a mid-morning (non-Starbucks) coffee break - so I got to bask a bit)

Our temps are great 70's, but it rained most the morning, and now it's muggy, windy and foggy!! There's a storm brewing!

Well, we thought Spring had sprung here in GA...but then the temps are n the 50's and drizzly today. It was totally cold at the soccer field today included blankets, socks and sweat shirts when just last wekk I got a wicked sun burn in the almost 90 degree weather!

It's a typical Maine spring day. Sunny this morning, cloudy with showers this afternoon & back to sun with some puffy clouds this evening. Temps in the low 60's.
I am SO looking forward to summer - I love the warm weather & having the whole summer off from work to play, focus on a few Bible studies and scrapbook to my heart's content.

Sunny and a little windy here in N. Cal...nice break from the rain we had a few days ago...

I'm in Delaware and it was around 73 and we actually went to a pool birthday party. The kids got in but not me. The pool is heated to around 76 but kids didn't mind. Happy NSD

Cute mug! Ok, I have to ask...do you get a discount at Starbucks if you use your own mug? I may have to get crafty and make my own mug!
The weather was beautiful in central Indiana today. High 70's!

oh, about 92 degrees and muggy here in good ol South Florida. Summer has arrived; we don't have seasons here. There is hot and then not so hot. :):)

Ooohhh, I am wishing for spring! We were supposed to get to the mid 70's here in the U.P., but only low 50's cloudy and WINDY today. Hopefully nicer tomorrow - at least that is what the weatherman says! :) We shall see! :)

I'm a bit south of you and we were at almost 90 today with lovely south breezes. A bit too humid but that's typical. Tonight is perfect .. lovely moon and the breeze is still with us. I really enjoy your blog. I came across it last summer from comments you left on the Whitney Cerak blog. Have been reading since then. Would you believe I've never had Starbucks?? I'm in a rural area and am not sure how close we are to one. Maybe someday!

Right now it's 53 and it's supposed to get up to 61 and sunny all day. I was hoping that we wouldn't get any rain since today is my first softball game of the season.

Wellllll, in Southern Alabama yesterday was a slightly humid 96. My gardenias are blooming, as are the magnolia trees, and wild honeysuckle. It smells wonderful when you drive with your windows open!

Cara said...

in typical colorado fashion, yesterday was grey, cold, and rainy.
today is blue skies, sunshine, and most likely some warmer temps!

HOT!!! Here in Florida. Today is supposed to be in the high 80s (if not 90s). The humidity is starting to creep in too, yuck. I think we will try to stay inside or go swimming; the kids get hot so quickly. We may even get an afternoon shower if we are lucky. Love reading your blog!
