I do love how Spring makes everything fresh and new again. It washes away all the drab colors of winter and makes everything light and colorful. It always amazes me that dead brown looking plants burst from the ground every year with new wonderful green shoots. I often wonder how something so delicate could survive the harsh winter... but I'm glad they do.
This little squirrel looked so lovely sitting on a soft carpet of moss. He was only about 3 feet or so away from us, sitting soaking up the Spring sun. Who can blame him, it did look so soft and comfortable. Although not many flowers are open yet this little pink flower was blooming in the woods where we go walking. All around it was brambles and dormant bushes so it really caught your eye with it's lovely deep pink color. Every time we go walking there is always something new at this time of year. That's what makes our walks so interesting. I have been meaning to show this new magazine ever since I made the Lime Pound cake, as it came from here. It really is full of new ideas and recipes for Spring....... I found a lot of really wonderful recipes that would be perfect for Easter...... or even for later in the year, maybe a birthday party or an afternoon tea. I think it will get a lot of use in the coming months.
Well my soap making is on the back burner for a few days as not all of my order came. I am still waiting on the colorant... pretty important unless you want all white soap! But I won't be sitting idle as I always have a gazillion other things in the works.
Hope you all had a great weekend!
