Sweet Spring is Near



Welcome, welcome,
little stranger,
Fear no harm,
and fear no danger;
We are glad
to see you here,
For you sing
"Sweet Spring is near."

~Louisa May Alcott,
"To The First Robin," 1840



Sweet Spring is indeed here!

The woods have come alive with beauty and song. I am spending as much time as possible either outside or in the back porch. Springtime seems to go by too quickly and the heat of summer will soon be upon us.

I love this little birdhouse that we bought on our visit to Boone, North Carolina.  I've yet to see a bird peeking in or out but the season is young.  Welcome, little birds!

  2. I agree that spring doesn't last nearly long enough here either, it seems to go from cold to hot very quickly, I am sure it won't be long and the birds will make a home in the house :)

    1. Connie, I hope you are right. I saw a lot of robins and cardinals today. I love to listen to the woodpeckers. :-)

  3. We are heading to the country tomorrow. I look forward to seeing if the leaves are on the trees there now as they are here. We are taking some wind chimes to hang...home sweet home away from home, they will chime.

  4. Cute little bird house! I haven't been to Boone in many years. It's such a quaint little town. (well, it's probably grown since I was there!)
    Enjoy your spring!

    1. Anne, it is a big college town now. Parts of Boone are still rustic though. ♥

  5. I'm enjoying Springtime, too, Gina. Your birdhouse is darling and I hope a family will take up residence.
    I got my card...thank you so much! I bought all the ingredients to make your Buried Treasure pie! I'm taking it to Arkansas this coming Friday.

  7. It's a beautiful time of year to spend outdoors. It's even been really cool in the evenings for my walk. Tonight I saw a bluebird fly from under a mailbox...must be a nest! Hugs sweet friend, Diane
