Round About

"The first day of spring is one thing,
 and the first spring day is another.
The difference between them is
 sometimes as great as a month."
Henry Van Dyke, (Fisherman's Luck)


 My first flower photo..taken last year.


Morning Glories at Sunrise Farms Bed and Breakfast

To answer you - I post Friends Sharing Tea late Tuesday morning and Open House (just did it) late Thursday morning. I moved them both up a couple months back. Thanks for asking! You can do "tea" on either one really.

I like that quote, used it myself recently. Dandelion flowers are quite pretty, and I've received small bouquets of them over the years from grands.

Clara,
Lovely photos and choice of subject matter for Round at Mary's Thursday's Inspirations, dear one! The photo of the dandelion brings pleasant memories of my boys and their Grandmother to mind!
Your quote is a perfect description of Spring...especially the one we're experiencing here on the Prairie this year! SNOW is in the forecast for the weekend!!!
Fondly,
Pat

How true that quote is! The Irish weather is more Winter than Spring at the moment!

We are seeing primroses and daffodils and the first of the azaleas here at Pondside. In town, where it's warmer, there is much more. The quotation you offered is wonderful! I'll have to save it.

Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to comment. I love to hear from you. ~Clara~
