Spring-i-fide Brain. Or a few of my Favorite Things....

Hi my lovely friends.  I think I have a spring-i-fide brain.  It's all I can think of right now.  I want to dig in the dirt, plant flowers, and watch things grow.   The last two week's of warmer weather has melted all of our snow.  And little Green things are popping out of the dirt.  So guess what some of my favorite things are right now....

All of these pics were taken last year during the month of May.  My apple trees in bloom! 


My crab apple tree in bloom...



Oh, and my lilacs!  I love lilacs, they are so lovely and smell so good!



My Mom's tulips!  They are coming up, and maybe they will bloom earlier this year....



Our front yard all green and spring-i-fide!


And over here too!


And the farmer's fields all Spring-i-fide and ready for planting!
My son and daughter were both born in May and my step-son was born in June.  I just love Spring!  A time for new beginnings.   And a time for new blog parties!  I am joining Laurie @  Bargain Hunting and Chatting with Laurie for her new weekly meme.  Go check out her blog, you won't be disappointed!

  2. Pretty Spring-i-fied pictures. :-)
    Gray and dreary here today. Hope the sun shows it's face, as I have to get out this afternoon.
    Enjoy your weekend.

  5. WOW, what an expansive property you have! How beautiful! I can just imagine how pleasant it would be to lay a blanket out on that lawn and read under the sun :) ♥

  6. Very nice Spring-i-fied pics girl. It's coming...I can feel it....I can hear it in the songs of the birds and the songs of the little peepers in the ponds. Get ready girl, we're gonna be takin' pictures of our bloomers before we know it.

    Have a glorious day, it's beautiful here! :o)

  9. Your trees and lilacs are gorgeous, Cindy. And I have never seen greener grass at this time of year! Beautiful.

    I was just reminded of this party today and couldn't think of anything quick enough. I am having some rooms de~wallpapered and I can't choose paint colors! I am so indecisive! So the whole house is a mess.

    I hope you have a fantastic weekend, girlfriend!

    xoxo

  10. SIgh. I have to come visit you. I think I might just pack me a suitcase right now. Course - if it SNOWED I'd be really happy too! :)
    OK, so when you are down on your hands and knees happily digging in the dirt and you hear someone come up behind you - don't think it's me - it'll probably be your naughty deer or your friendly bear from your neck of the woods. :) (Remember you have that little ladder leading to roof - go for that Girlfriend! :) )
    Have a great weekend! Miss you! Karen

  11. Ahhhhh -- the merry merry month of May! I've always said it is one of THE most delightful months! Thanks for sharing the promise of spring to come -- we're mighty dreary today.

  12. You have a lovely green front yard. I have the same spring a fied condition that you have. Today I went to the plant nursery to buy tomatoe plants, and sternly stopped myself from buying any, after reading the sign which said "Wait until mid-April to plant tomatoes." But I didn't burst in to tears, instead I bought strawberry plants and other goodies.
    Tis hard to wait!

  16. I love those trees in bloom. I just planted a crabapple last year. I can't wait to see if it will bloom this year.

  17. The pictures look great! I know I look forward to the same things. See, I read they are from last year, :) I would be very jealous too!
    I wish those crab apple lasted longer, don't you?

  21. You have one of the most beautiful gardens I have ever seen. Australia's grass doesn't get green like that very often... too dry. Have a great weekend.

  22. Cindy,
    It is good to catch up with you. Our blog names are so similar. I can't wait until our apple trees come into bloom so I can capture a picture to put on my blog header. It's been a long, hard winter.
    Thanks for stopping by Applejack Lane. My MIL was an avid collector. Many of the things I have were hers, and I have just added to them over the years. Then again, many of the collections are totally mine. It's an addiction that I am trying to stop somewhat.

  25. Oh, Cindy, your spring has arrived! What a beautiful lot & the farmers fields are warm.

    We are still doing the roller coaster ... a wee spring here & there.

    Have a beautiful Palm Sunday!

  26. Hi Cindy! Fortunately, John could not water the faux plants cause he was with me on a Caribbean cruise, lol. It was so nice and refreshing to come home to a clean home last night. Thanks for sharing these pretty flowering trees and plants. I am inspired. Our peach trees started blooming the week we left and I am glad to see more green grass coming out.....Christine
