New life

Don't you just love spring? It's when everything comes back to life. Spring also brings back the worst of my seasonal allergies, but I can forgive it that because of the beauty that comes with it. One thing I adore is seeing the trees bud. The leaves just start poking out of their winter hiding places, very bright green, just hinting at what beauty they are going to bring. I've always wanted to be able to take a picture of the leaves popping out. Finally, today was the perfect day. Rain falling and the leaves just beginning to make the trees look fuzzy. Kind of makes me forget about all the stuff that keeps my mind busy the rest of the time.

Nice blog! I'm not very "crafty" myself, and what talents I do have tend to run more toward sewing/making things. But your stuff is really pretty. I guess I just don't have the patience to create like that.
Just wanted to let you know someone is reading, 'cuz no comment land sux :(

Great picture! My tree's are doing that as well, but this weekend they had a layer of snow on the as well!
I love your book marks! The back ground really looks awesome! Are the fish sticers, stamps or what? Great job on them!

I agree with you Michelle. I absolutely LOVE watching the plants grow. It totally amazes me every year! It just shows me every year how God loves me to give me such beauty to look at!
Thanks for sharing such a great moment.

I love Spring too!!! We're having a pretty wacky one--snow, sun, hail, rain. You name it, we've got it...sometimes on the same day!!

Have a good one, SBS Sis!
