I am linking this post to Seasonal Sundays at The Tablescaper.

Thank you for looking through my Spring notebook with me. I loved getting out in our yard, finding blooming flowers, and snapping these photos. If it’s not already there, I hope Spring will be in your neighborhood soon. Please go visit other favorites shown in the links below. laurie

Beautiful blooms, Laurie. I definitely smell like dirt at the end of the most days. Lots' of garden time lately.

Your pictures are glorious! And the quotes are, too!
We aren't nearly as far along as you are, but I did find some crocuses blooming in the back yard today!
Yay, spring!

Hi Laurie,
I think we are all so ready for the beauty of Spring! We have finally gotten some warmer weather and most of the snow has melted. I even got to spend a little time outdoors straightening up some things. Have a wonderful weekend.

Lovin' all the beautiful colors Laurie-enjoy! Your orange trumpet daff is great! If my plants do well I'm thinking about having a daffodil bulb exchange this fall, we'll see:@)

Oh Laurie, all of your flowers are so pretty. Nothing wonderful around here, our cold weather just about killed everything. Guess I need to make a trip to the nursery. Hope you have a super weekend. Hugs, Marty

What pretty flowers, Laurie! They are blooming here, too! I am holding my breath, though. We usually get one more hard freeze just as the azaleas bloom. :-( Happy weekend!...hugs..Debbie

These images are so beautiful. It is so nice to see these pretty springtime flowers as we are heading into winter soon and things are already looking a little sad!

Thanks for having me today.

Breathtaking Pictures:)

Debbie said...

I just love this post. Not only are the pictures just beautiful, but the quotes are fabulous too. Within this one post, you hit on two of my favorite things, too.

And the Grizzard one is my favorite. I love Lewis Grizzard. I just recently pulled out "If Love Were Oil, I'd Be About A Quart Low" to reread for laughs.
