  1. You sure have it wet and muddy right now! We are still having snow too but probably not as much as you are. Keep looking for those signs of spring!

    Thanks for sharing your lovely images with the OHC.

  2. Signs of spring are lovely to see......but it sure is a messy time with mud isn't it? My kids live in their rainboots this time of the year. Great pictures!

  3. You hit it just right! The jean hem photo - oh my! I sometimes have to wash pants here a couple times to get them clean. :-)

  4. LOL, same story here too :-)
    Mud two days ago, a winter wonderland today!

  5. That reminds me of my childhood growing up in Ohio. While I confess I miss the stark contrast that comes with the change of seasons, I am relieved to not have the mess that it all causes. Although, you make it look pretty magical! Gorgeous pictures.

  6. great shots...too funny about the scarf!!

  7. Wellies are definitely in order!

  8. Thanks for stopping by my blog! These photos remind me of growing up in Minnesota! Don't really miss my Arizona! Enjoy!

  9. Your spring looks a lot like ours right now!

  10. Oh my goodness! All that mud!
    We sure need a little bit of your rain in Texas!
    Thanks for stopping by my blog,

  11. these photos are beautiful !! A lot different than Florida!

  12. Love your photos..and blog font!

  13. Great, great photos!

    I'm enjoying all the sights to see on your side of the mountain:)

  14. Love your pictures. In Massachusetts, we're having pretty much the same....spring, then, snow, and lots of mud. We recently moved from the city to a town and love all the nature we were missing on the city streets. I miss being close to public transportation and some of the other advantages of the city, but Nature wins hands down..... I'm glad your kids get to enjoy so much nature at a young age. It truly is a gift. Thanks for your posts, love your blog.

  16. Your pictures really capture the reality of a slow coming spring.... we are right there with you. My favorite is the jeans. We have a lot of those at our house too....even with the rubber boots!

  17. Oh I love all that mud stomping - and that you found scarves in the melting snow! So excited for garden planning too :) Wonderful photos.
