What a lovely bit of Spring...

The older I get the more I love Spring. I found a book that I've had for a long time but couldn't remember where I had put it. It's called "The Fragrant Garden" Edited by Sheila Pickles. It is full of poetry and prose about spring and flowers. And it's aromatherapeutic, it smells really pretty! I am still working on my felted bunny project and will have more pictures later. But for right now I thought it would be nice to show off these lovely flowers growing around my house. I know it is such a cliche but I don't think enough people stop to look at the simple beauty around them. If you don't look, you'll never see it! Have a really wonderful day. Cassie
