Hello Spring!!








Dear Spring, 
It's that time of year when the leaves begin to pop out from branched buds to wave a welcome as you approach. Shy bulb flowers start to show their faces. 
I love the way you arrive in a cloud of blossom, bearing armfuls of colourful flowers and a warm sunny smile. 
Your friends, the birds and butterflies, are always close on your heels and soon it's one big happy party complete with lively bird song and heavenly scented breezes.
 Even the sun stays up later and later to join in the fun. 
Dear Spring, I'm so happy that you've come to visit us again. 


Happy flowers to everyone!

Happy Spring Day! I'm also celebrating today that Spring has finally arrived in the Southern Hemisphere! We've had such a cold wet winter this year. I love your applique flowers! Joyful!

It's nice to see spring popping over there, as autumn turns here. Your posts always make me smile!

Im loving seeing flowers start to shyly pop up their heads . I even have a few tulips that have bloomed.

Your happy spring makes our fall happy!!

smazoochie said...

As always, I wish you were just next door. (Though if you were, you would be wishing for autumn rather than spring.) My dear florist, your flower posts are always a joy!

rebecca said...

Welcome to spring! What a delightful way to begin. The flowers in front of pocketful of posies are my absolute favourite pic in the post. We have an early scarlet poppy (just one)blooming at the moment. Our dear girl gravely inspects it. We have also just got spring chickens - 3 girls, Drusilla, Cassandra and Hetty Feather! Yay Spring.

Marg said...

It was a fabulous day for the start of spring. I wish I could grow spring flowers here, sigh!

Lynne Shandley said...

Particularly love that first pic, the one of the poppy! It is just right!
Ranuncs and poppies are two of my fave flowers to photograph. Pity we are heading into winter here but that is how the cycle goes! No spring without winter!

Sharyn Baldwin said...

I adore your vase collection, they are just perfect with those bright flowers! It is so wonderful to be over the winter and right into Spring - we are madly gardening and preparing for Summer now!
Joy and colour!!

tracie @ beets+birch said...

yeah for spring and poppies!!! one of my very favorite flowers!

pandchintz said...

What a beautiful post. Although looking out the window, it looks like Winter has made a swift and chilly return!!

Barb said...

Happy spring my dear friend -
I love your poem (yes, it is a poem) and captures the feeling and longing of spring perfectly.
There is nothing like it after a long dark winter.
enjoy the flowers, birds and breezes.
I'm looking forward to fall myself ;)

I'm looking forward to the Autumn equinox on September 23 here in Canada. These last few days of Summer have been lovely, we have a bit of rain today and a bit more of Autumn temperatures.

I'm curious why you are saying it is the first day of Spring in Australia?

Rachaeldaisy said...

Hi Sandi, in Australia our seasons begin with the beginning of the month, not by the equinoxes like some countries do. I'm not sure why it's different.

Dawn said...

Enjoy your spring, we are enjoying heading into fall. I prefer fall to winter for the color. Although the many shades of white in the mountain snows are pretty spectacular.
Lovely flowers and words :-)

Leonie @ Cuppa and Cake said...

It cracks me up when people think that "Natural" colors are BEIGE!!. I'm glad I found a house that is covered in Nature!!

Melody said...

Spring is wonderful and so are your photos

Such a bright, cheerful post. The start of spring is a lovely time of year. Let's hope the nice weather returns in the next few days, after this rude return to winter weather.

Ellen Giggenbach said...

Yippee! We are enjoying the first hints of spring here too in New Zealand! I love your flowers in vases!X

Jess @ Elven Garden Quilts said...

Happiest of springs to you Rachael! I'm still awestruck by all the amazing colour in this post :o)
