  1. I’m going to trust the magic of beginnings. I need a new start! Thank you for sharing this message! Have a wonderful week ahead! Best, Koko:)

  2. When I came back from Sweden, it felt as if I had missed the first half of spring. Some things were already done blooming – I felt a bit cheated. Glad you get to enjoy it from the beginning!

    • So sorry you missed early spring, Anna. It all happens so quickly, doesn’t it? I had that experience last spring when I traveled to OR for 8 days. I hate to loose even a moment of the show! We enjoy driving through the Blue Ridge mountains in April. You experience all the phases of spring again as you drive up and down from valley to peaks. We stayed at elevation, near the West Virginia border in April, where it was about 3 weeks ‘earlier’ than it was in Williamsburg at the time. We went back to Forsythia and early bulbs for a few days, then watched spring unfold at speed as we drove back home! So interesting how much profound change a few days can bring. Thank you for visiting, Anna ❤ ❤ ❤

  3. Well for some reason my post was slow to load the photos – but you know it was nice because I was able to read the quotes and then when the pics came in it was a color explosion! Well maybe not explosion – ha but awesome !!

  4. Is that your first crocus? Spring at last! 🙂
