Spring Has Sprung

With the lime green blanket that has covered the foothills in Northern California, the excitement of Spring is in the air.  I love this time of year.  We escape the gloom of winter and get to enjoy warmer weather and the new green, the lime green of freshly budding leaves and new grass.  When the trees start to pop with buds and blossoms and the daffodils and irises sprout up everywhere, I can understand why the term spring fever was coined.  

 My family was enjoying the beautiful weather and the first day of spring break today.  The little ones gave me with best gift, a huge basket of wildflowers!  

 We filled multiple vases with these unusual beauties.  While some would consider these weeds, my children saw the beauty in these unusual plants.

  Grouped together, the spiral white flowers are so interesting, they remind me of an exotic plant.

 I am so grateful for my kind generous children who amaze me everyday!  Thank you for the happiness in a vase.

What is your favorite thing about spring?


  1. These Flowers are not near as beautiful as YOU!!

  2. Great photos! You should see if any of them are edible weeds, but I'm sure they're prettier than they are tasty!
