Tulips are my favourites and buckets full of them in many colours make me so happy. Hooray for spring!

Jacqueline @ HOME said...

Happy Springtime to you, dear Mimi.
Spring is a time of new beginnings and optimism and, although I love every season, as they all have their merits, Spring is so fresh and clean and, our garden always looks its best in late Spring.
Paris in the Springtime is the most wonderful place to be....lucky you !!
Have a lovely Sunday, dear Mimi. XXXX

Mimi! - Those tulips made me so happy! It snowed here on the first day of spring - a day after we worked in the garden in 64 degree weather.
Now we are waiting for the snow to melt...sigh.

Can't wait to enjoy our own tulips!

Happy Spring to you too Madame Romance. Tulips are my daughter's favourite flower and a must in my cottage around this time of the year. Sorry I have been a bit absent lately! I am finally getting to catch up, I needed some me time to relax and to get rid of my migraines. I am so glad I was able to find the time to do so. Thanks so much for visiting me, you are a good friend. Take care luv.

Bonjour Mimi!
I love your quote, It's so true. We've all had some bad Winters in our lives, the trick is to have Spring last longer:)
Don't you just love warm sunshine and flowers?? I can't get enough of them. I am most definitely looking forward to Springtime. It's full of hope for future happiness.
Thanks for sharing your beautiful thoughts and pictures
I hope you are having a wonderful spring day!

Hi Mimi,

I wish you a lovely spring season as well! Spring certainly had a good start in holiday. Today we will have temperatures up to 20 degrees celcius. Hurray! Time to go into the garden!

Wish you a lovely evening!

Lieve groet, Madelief
