*HOME* Sweet *HOME*

For the past 2 days I have been telling myself I NEED to take a picture of my home. You see, in Michigan SPRING is such a welcomed sight after a long, cold, brown, drab and dreary WINTER...this winter being one of the snowiest on record. So when the brown grass turns to green, bulbs break their way through the crusty hard cold ground and then the colorful petals bloom on trees all around...well you can see from my pictures..SPRING IS HERE!!!

I love the house and the flowering trees, sweetpea! Yep, it looks like spring has arrived at your house.

Absolutely beautiful home. So glad Spring has started for you, we are already in Summer weather here in FL.

Dolly said...

Everything looks so fresh and pretty! And GREEN!
We are about a month behind you up here as far as weather and growing season!
Our grass is just turning green and the daffodils and tulips are opening this week!

Thanks for shareing your beautiful yard with us!

Hugz, Dolly

Your house is so gorgeous! I love brick homes and yours is amazing to look at, thanks for sharing! We are just coming out of a very long, wet, mossy winter and I love looking at all the Spring posts, HOORAY FOR SUNSHINE!!!!
It was sunny, but only in the high 40's today so I stayed inside and made some stuff in my sunny craft room instead, I tried to garden but my fingers wouldn't move...
Hugs and Blessings coming your way,

Love, love, love your flowering trees, Lorena!! Your lawn looks so green, too. Much better than ours as the moles worked the entire winter under the snow, I think! Thanks for sharing. You have a beautiful home outside as well as inside.

What a gorgeous home! Isn't it great to see the green grass again? Winter was harsh here too, and I don't think I have ever been so happy to welcome spring! The only downside is that with all the April showers, I have grass to mow already, but wow, it sure brought out the May flowers!

Donna Lynn said...

I am so sorry about your sick fan, I hate it when my computer has problems! Hope you get it back really soon so we can have more posts of yours to read.
Thanks so much for coming for a visit today! I love your comments, and yes bring everyone for a lunch date in Sumner, that would just be a blast...
Hugs, Donna Lynn
