Oh, it's the same here. I love it here so much in the winter and spring that I (almost) forget what it's like in the summer...

Wonderful photos! They made want to come over and have lunch with you...

Love, Silke

Silke said...

And...speaking of food - I love to eat! And it's become a little joke having pictures of me with food. As I was reading your comment on my blog this morning, I was doing so while eating a couple of biscotti.. Love, Silke

No, we haven't exchanged yarns, but I did find out she gets hers from specialty yarn shops. We have one in town and I've been there a few times. I see I'll have to start collecting some yarn...oh, how terrible...;-)

Hello Beautiful! At last. I have been dying to leave a comment when I saw the lemons. Oh Deborah! How great it is that you have a fruit tree? I love lemons. It reminds me of my childhood. I don't know why because we don't have this variety of lemon in our island. Anyway this year I finally bought a plastic lemon, the same kind we had when we were children and Mother let us hand it in our Christmas tree. The weather was not as cold as it was yesterday and I was able to take a walk at lunch without a winter coat, just a light vest. Yet our garden does not look like yours. My plants are all wilted from the freeze. I am not sure if they will survize the freeze. What a beautiful home you have. Of course I expected you to have a beautiful home! Have a lovely evening my sweet!

I love to pop by for some color therapy. I can almost taste those lemons, yum. I was so sad to pack away your little chocolate delights for the season. Thanks again for you thoughtfulness. Enjoy your springy weather- I've been busy creating my own spring fling over here.
Happy friday!!!
