Happy first day of Spring Anita. With the renewal Spring brings us all its always lovely to see color being added to our homes. I love all you Aqua touches and especially love those dyed eggs. I think you will have to blow out the insides on some and dye the pretty Aqua for display. Just like Penny, I love and want those boots.

Beautiful words and photos.

I don't really experience big seasonal changes in weather, but I imagine it must be wonderful to finally have warmer days.

I'm new to your blog and love it! Utterly fun, cosy and filled with adventure. Adore the wellies as well! :)

Deborah Nolan said...

Dear Anita it looks by your lovely photos it certainly had arrived. Those boots at the end are absolutely gorgeous. Nothing like something colorful to put on to walk in April's showers. Hope you have a blessed week.

Red Rose Alley said...

Happy Spring, Anita! And I am lovin' all the aqua on here today, especially the last picture of the rain boots, so cute. Spring is looking lovely in your home, and I'm starting to decorate a bit for spring too. I saw my first red roses in my garden yesterday. :)

Have a happy spring week, my dear.

love, ~Sheri

Good Afternoon My Dearest Anita,
What lovely inspiration you have treated us to today. Your photography is stunning and thoughtful poetry perfectly written. I am thoroughly enjoying your choice of blue hues. In fact these eggs brought back a vivid memory for me. Growing up as a Farmer Daughters nature was abundant. In fact, nature appeared in some very unlucky places. I remember climbing on the potato harvester to discover a nest filled with tiny vibrant blue eggs, from a Robin.
Wishing you a equally vibrant Spring, my friend.
With love,

Ana said...

Happy Spring my sweet friend.


Down by the sea said...

Beautiful colours, that shade of blue is my favourite colour! Wishing you a joyful Spring and Easter! Thank you for always popping by and leaving me a comment. I just don't have time to get into instagram too! Sarah x

Hello Anita,
Your post is a breath of spring air on his overcast spring day.
I wish you take this opportunity to wish you a very Happy Easter

Beth at PlantPostings said...

Happy spring! I'm so glad to see you're back. I hear you're getting quite a bit of snow this week. We will get some here in Madison, too. Oh well, hopefully it will all melt fast and spring will continue on its merry way. Happy Easter, too!

What a beautiful colour blue can be - your images are just a joy to look at.

All the best Jan

Chère Anita,

Quel beau message.

Je te souhaite
des jours de printemps
fleurissants et tendres
d'une beauté limpide
et inoubliable...

Hopping and skipping
a bird jumps in the meadow,
straight into spring...

Oh cher Troebadoer, vos paroles me touchent à travers les distances de la poèsie. Le printemps demeure pour toujours dans le coeur fidèle qui aime. MERCI!

Wonderful pictures! Being sick, I had no time to decorate for spring, but I enjoy seeing dyed eggs on others' blogs!

The French Hutch said...

Bonjour Anita,
Stopping by again to say hello. I am enjoying all of your photos now, I am trying to find my way around in Instagram!
May your week be beautiful...........

Michael said...

I just did some of my own eggs. Can you believe it? But first time ever! Let me clarify: that is, first time creating art on eggs vs jsut dipping them in colour. Fun but oh so back wearing. haha.

Anita fairest! I stopped by yesterday and left a couple of comments, but for some reason they did not go through. I set up a new page and I'm still sorting out the fine details, so I hope this works today.
I am so happy to connect with you in blogland again. Fun gathering at instagram, but oh, how I love this place. Just seems so much more open and friendly. Your photographs are as stunning as ever.
Have a lovely day, lovely.

Red Rose Alley said...

I love that picture on your instagram of the chocolate eggs and the bunny hehehehe. Is that a live bunny or stuffed animal, it looks so real?

love, ~me

Linda @ Life and Linda said...

Anita, such a lovely post. I adore the aqua. Beautifully composed post with your amazing photography. Thank you as always for visiting my blog. xo

Anita, dear friend, thank you for stopping by and for your warm welcome back to blogland. :) Seems impossible to leave this magical land permanently, and my goodness, how much I've tried. ;)
I'm still testing my commenting, so please pardon any duplicates. Seems the only way I can comment is via a blogspot profile, but not with wordpress as I used to be able to. I'll see if this works.
By the way, I clicked on your name in your comment and it led to your new page. LOVE! LOVE! LOVE!

Marcia said...

testing once more

Marcia said...

YAY! It worked!
Oh my goodness. teehee
Persistence prevailed!!
I'll be in touch via email later today, my friend.

Oh Yes, the poetry nowadays does not always rhyme, and I love the olden days when the poetry rhymed, but I also enjoy some of the poetry of today. That one was from such a long time ago, and I've always treasured it.

Have a wonderful rest of the week, my dear.

love, ~me

I need these boots for my garden! How sweet of you to visit.. So happy you enjoyed the tour.
I just cannot get upset with Ethel.. After all, this is what she does.. However, I looked out the window this morning and she was NOT there... She must have heard me as she was running away yesterday. teeheee

I miss coloring eggs for the little children. Renee always had an Easter bonnet and Easter egg hunt. My Mother always had Easter Dinner. She was French and stayed in a Catholic convent 5 days a week as a child.. My Grandmother had to work, as my Grandfather was shell shock after WW 1
ttps:// amazing what war does. God bless us all. yvonne
