Flowers... are a proud
 assertion that a ray
of beauty outvalues
all the utilities of the world.

~Ralph Waldo Emerson

On this first day of
March I hope you
have time to stop
and see the beauty
that is around you.
Enjoy another Thursday
my friends!


  1. We've woken to thick mist coming up from the river and hanging around the woods but It'll soon burn off and we'll see all the buds like your pretty blossom bursting out..

    ...the best time of year...

  2. I'm amazed that you have trees blooming already! Happy March 1st!

  3. Wow! Blooming already! I'll have to take a look around. Did you get any of the crazy storms last night? Lots of thunder.

  4. Your photo is beautiful! We are having winter weather today; snow, wind and some freezing rain. I love it!

  5. Thanks for sharing, Tracey! Gorgeous photo. It has been quite the Spring so far...high 60's here yesterday...very unusual here for so early. My kids are in heaven spending so much time outside which I why I forewent the yarn along....ahhh...priorities :)

  6. happy march 1st tracey dear! we have high winds and cold air, it's good knitting weather!

  7. I enjoyed seeing your beautiful blossom, as our are another month or so away. I suppose that is actually good, as we woke to snow (a very little bit) and ice this morning! Happy march 1st! Spring is almost here!

  8. happy thursday to you, too!!! (at this rate, I'm thinking we'll be into summer before spring even arrives!!!)

  9. march is shaping out to be a beautiful month. :)

  10. Oh, how I wish we were looking at spring blooms up here in Canada. We awoke to a snow and ice storm this morning.

    Hope you had a lovely day Tracey.

  11. Thanks for this reminder. I needed it, and I saw it lighter later and cherry blossoms on the trees and tulips making their first peak up in soil.
