adding a little SPRING to the step~

The beautiful spring came;
and when Nature resumes her loveliness,
the human soul is apt to revive also.
Harriet Ann Jacobs


the color yellow just does me some good

we've not had much of a cold winter,
but the days have been long & dreary
the body don't seem to do well with those
I've noticed the wonderful forsythia bushes blooming
and adding such brightness to the landscape.
I added some sunny yellow blooms to our foyer table.
Just seems to add some cheer and life.


The lemons add just the touch to
brighten the top of the frig.

Don't take much just a half-dozen lemons
and some stems of forsythia to add
a little spring to the step. :)

I love your forsythia blossoms. The yellow is a day brightener for sure! And the lemons around the candle are a sweet idea too. It's pouring rain today so it will take down the snow a bit. No forsythia blooming here though. :( Have a great day! Pamela

I am beginnig to like yellow again, especially with a yellow, blue and cream colored kitchen. No my own is not that color combo but wouldn't it be pretty?

Oh how beautiful! Isn't it funny how we just get tired of winter and our souls cry out for spring? I just smile when I walk past my springiness. I love forsythia and the lemons are a perfect touch I wouldn't have thought of.

Such beautiful vignettes. I love how warm and inviting everything is. Great idea to use the lemons for color. Stunning. Thanks for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty

HI Karen and I love your pretty yellow touches! Seems like everyone has had a milder winter this year! We don't get much of a winter here. When it's 60' here, I'm freezing! :)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Ohhhh... I love your yellows! Wonderful glimpses.

Our winter has been milder (except for a week of -30C). So I haven't been yearning for Spring like some years. Yet it feels wonderful to realize it's around the corner.
