Happy Spring

Cinnamongirl who blogs at Happy Handwork is celebrating the start of spring with a contest. The prize is Malabrigo worsted weight yarn in a beautiful variegated color called velvet grapes. Everyone is invited to enter. You'll find all the contest details (like entry deadline) here.

The basic rules copied directly from Happy Handwork:

You can only enter one time. If you mention my contest on your blog with a link you will receive an extra 3 entries! If one of your friends enters because of your input you will get one extra entry. And lastly, just for fun, make sure to mention in your post one of your favorite flowers.

So, what is my favorite flower? Wildflowers are at the top of the list. They are beginning to bloom around here--a sure sign of spring. We saw some Indian Paintbrush last weekend, so I know the Texas Bluebonnets can't be far behind.

However, this week my favorite flower is the orchid John gave me for no special reason, except he knew it would make me happy.

And it does.

Wishing happiness to everyone!

Happy Weekend.
Happy Easter.
Happy Spring.


  1. Thanks for the tip. I just entered the contest and mentioned you. I love the orchid. It's stunning. Happy Spring!

  2. Orchids are such special flowers. Yours is beautiful!!

  3. Lovely! I am a bit of a spring bah humbug. I love spring but I do not want it to arrive before April 15th. Being a CPA and all I hate to miss out on spring because I'm working. And I don't want my yard to get out of control before I can deal with it. I think they are predicting snow in my neck of the woods this weekend. I'll be the only person in all of Kansas that won't bad mouth it.

  4. Those pictures are beautiful. On a trip to California, we were taken on several agriculture related tours and one was to a greenhouse chock-full of orchids. It was incredible!!

  5. That John sounds like a real keeper, Tracy! :-)

  6. What a beautiful flower, indeed. Thanks for the tip on the contest, too! Happy Easter to you and yours.

  7. Orchids. I forgot how much I love them. Thanks
