Daydream a Little Spring....



It has been pouring rain all day.
It will tomorrow too.
I would rather have a brisk, cold day
~with sunshine, no wind~
than a grey, cloudy, all-day-rain.

Can I order that, please?
If not, then I will dream about
~Spring~
I know she won't be here until late April.
Never is.
That Girl is always running behind!

So today instead of wishing the rain would go away~

I
thought
of
these
beautiful
things
that
remind
me
of
Spring
!


White picket fences with gorgeous spring flowers.




The horses grazing on green, yummy grass!

Flea markets!





Good friends, like Elvira, come back to visit :)



Dining Al Fresco
on my front porch!


Forsythia.
{ours has tiny, tiny little buds!}




Potting sheds are happily put to good use!


I took this pic of Annie one year ago today.
She didn't even know what Spring was yet!
She was still at Miss D's side.
Venturing off more and more on her own then.
This Spring, I do believe Annie will be in love!
Birds to chase to across the pasture,
buttercups to run through,
and beautiful new grass to nap in.
{and in all her joy, I am sure J
will have plenty of boards to replace!}



So for now I sit at my desk.
And
Daydream a little Spring.....



{really}

Oh, I hear ya. And we're about to get more. UGH!!!

DUDE - he's a 15 year old 16 hand Quarter horse who will semi-retire with my sister and her daughter as his owner. He's super quiet and gentle and perfect for first time horse owners. They have been taking lessons at a QH barn for a few years now and there are teens there that my niece rides with, so they don't want to move him out of that barn. I wouldn't want to pay the board that an "indoor" facility gets and I really like that Opie has large pasture besides a big box stall at night where he is now. And I like to trail ride.. they don't do that where Dude is. Soooooo... for now we are not at the same barn. I am thinking of building another barn at the new old house and bringing Opie home, my two minis too (yes I have two minis that are "on loan" to another farm right now). Stay tuned!!....

Your pics are so pretty.. is THAT your PORCH??? Love it.

Hi Misha,
I feel your pangs for spring. I'm not far from you in Georgia and I too am just tired of the rain. But soon I'll be listening to my mom wish it would rain so the crops would grow...so for now I'll take the rain!!
Have a good warm weekend!
Fondly,
Ann

There's something about this winter that makes me ache a little more then usual for any sign of spring. Your lovely photos have made things a bit worse, I'm afraid to say ... we have cold rain here in Virginia today, and the grey skies aren't helping my mood one bit. I'm an optimistic person by nature, and I noticed the other day that it's not completely dark anymore while I cook dinner. Longer days mean spring is getting closer ... I can't wait!

Your porch is lovely, and I have enjoyed my visit here. I intend to return ... often.

If I wasn't before, I am now! And the flea market, I want to go to the flea market!!! I have no idea how I would bring anything home with me but I don't care, I want to go to the flea market, with you! : )

Happy Saturday

~Andrea~

PS. And then I would like to dine al fresco on your front porch!

LYLAS!!

texwisgirl said...

Had to laugh. I too, for some strange reason, perked up when I saw the flea market photo. And I typically don't like to shop or treasure hunt! Must be spring fever stirring inside. :)

Deb said...

I'm dreaming of Spring right along with you. We will get above freezing today so maybe all of this snow will melt.

I want to dine on your adorable porch. It looks SO inviting. I'll do the cooking:) The flea market sounds like fun too, it's been awhile since I've been.

Donna said...

Misha,
I too am so ready for Spring! It has rained here the last two days mixed with sleet and snow on Thursday UGH!
I can't wait to put on my purple tennies (like yours) and get out and work in the yard.
Hugs,
Donna

Julie Harward said...

I appreciated all your images of Spring..makes me feel better to remember that ...it will come! Come say hi :D

Snappy Di said...

That's a nice looking flea market. I could browse there for hours on a nice sunny day.

Jeni said...

I need to find a flea market like that!!!

Right now as I watch HUGE snow flakes fall and coat the ice the freezing rain dropped earlier... spring seems soooo far off =(

Jeanette said...

I start wishing for Spring as soon as we get the first snow fall! Honestly!! We are now over the hump of Winter so it won't be too long now! Loved your post and your beatiful pictures!!

Tonya said...

Well Misha I'm in Northern Florida, but we have not had much sun or warmth believe or not. Cloudy in the 30's which is probably warm to you, and misty and rainy. Your photo's are just beautiful. I love the one of your porch and your desk and of course your horses. Hopefully you will have an early Spring. Blessings.

Donna said...

We're dreaming of spring too! The wind has been wicked today, rattling the windows and blowing things over.

I was just making a new spring-y post and here I was clicking over to your blog and you have a new blog makeover AND springy pictures! I LOVE IT! This has been a long winter even for those in the milder climates!
XOXO

Just found your blog. I am in ET too. Love the pictures of your table setting on the front porch.Actually I enjoyed all the pictures, and I too am dreaming of spring.

Hello Misha!
I know exactly how you feel...I'm dreaming of spring too. I'm REALLY hoping that this year we'll get grass planted in all the areas around the farm that have been dug up or where buildings have come down. My big #1 project this year though is to get the flower gardens and grass planted inside the picket fence. Shep can't get in there anymore to dig and pee on everything...YEAY! Your pictures are wonderful...love the spring flowers and the porches etc but most especially the horses on the grass and little Miss Annie when she was just little. She's so sweet. Thanks for giving us a little taste of what's to come...now lets hope it comes early this year ;) Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
Maura :)

Not yet but will be soon.
We are supposed to get a little more snow this coming week.

Happy Sunday.

Laura said...

Loved your lovely pictures.
I am so ready for spring! Measured about 17 inches of snow in our yard yesterday.
I promise that I will not complain about the mud this spring! :)

I love the photos and the idea of Annie playing in green pastures.

Spring seems like a long ways away in my neck of the woods.

Thistle Cove Farm said...

Please forgive me for saying this but I'd like spring to hold off a tad longer. Just long enough for me to enjoy a wee bit of winter at Thistle Cove Farm. Although I'm already planning the garden and other spring chores -grin-; hope springs eternal!
