Thoughts of Spring

Fresh, soft, bright, light. That's what spring means to me.

The willows are showing a leafy green. They're always the first to start. Cheery blossoms decorate the neighborhood.  

The light has changed.

Early spring has a softness found no other time in the year. . . .

Who can help but celebrate?

Happy Spring days ahead!

  1. I'm celebrating with you! The signs of spring are everywhere. Lovely, lovely photos as always, Jacqueline!

    Happy weekend to you & yours,

  2. Your pictures of fresh Spring is so dreamy , as you say the light is brighter & longer making us all feel so much happier. Even though we didn't have snow and a severe winter, I'm happy to see Spring. Love all your pictures.
    Happy week-end .

  3. You really captured spring in this post. Our snow is gone and I finally see that spring is not far off now.

  4. I have been captivated by the soft light in my own cottage too. The last photos of the light on your roses is like a lullaby.

  5. That is such a pretty post! I love it- xo Diana

  6. Another beautiful post! Today was gorgeous, so hoping that the weekend follows the pattern. I'm ready to garden!

  7. Oh the sweet butterfly embroidery, all such pretty photos

  8. All of your photos are so beautiful, but the closeup of the nest really speaks to me. This post truly captures how spring is arriving here in CT - very slowly with small signs that it is trying to make its appearance (even with a foot of snow still covering my gardens).

  9. Such beautiful roses and pictures. Lovely gentle reminders of spring. Thanks, Patty/NS

  10. Love, love, love your post today! Oh, I am so anxious for spring... I cannot wait. Today our temps are still in the 30s, but at least it's lighter longer.

  11. Lovely images of Spring Jacqueline. I always like to see the lovely dreamy items you put together.

  12. My name for you is "the lovely linen lady".

  13. Today is suppose to be warm and my daffodils have doubled in size in a day. The winter makes us appreciate the rise of spring.

  14. Well, my weekend is certainly better now that I've seen your beautiful photos of the lovely things you live with J! I agree about the light that spring brings, it's like a total renewal of spirit!
    sending hugs your way...

  15. I can almost smell Spring as I read this refreshing post.
    Have a wonderful week

  16. Your photos make me happy and remind me spring officially starts in 4 days. Yay!


  17. Jacqueline,
    always beautiful photos, the nests and eggs are my favorite! Today is our first beautiful day, clear, sunny and 75, such a change from 2 weeks ago, freezing and snow! Spring may be finally really here!

  18. Just lovely touches with all the things I love!
    I would love for you to stop by my blog and join our Something to Talk About link party!
    Happy Spring!

  19. Jacqueline, I have been embracing the onset of spring, it youth in growth and the cleaning and tweeting about the house that always seams to take place about this time of year.
    I love your photos it's feels a bit different but very much you. My favorite photo is of the dark cabinet with the iron-stoneware a top it. I am looking for a couple of very dark pieces to anchor my home, I want to add some depth as you have that soulfully speaks to us all I am sure of that.

    May the grace and growth of spring inspire.
    Thank you beautiful for making time to visit me and always adding your special comment.


  20. Jacqueline,
    Early Spring, with its softness, beckons this indoors lady to come out~of~doors and soak up the Sun!!! I've been enjoying my time sipping Afternoon Tea on the back deck!!! This post is a gentle invitation to bring out some soft linens to add to the tables!!!

  21. Jacqueline, such a pretty and light touch of spring, just as it should be. Our willows are all sprouting too and look so pretty, but I'm sad that I missed the pussy-willows when they were out. We have been having such great weather that they came and went right before our very eyes..Happy Wednesday..Judy

  22. I love your spring decorating. It is perfect! Thanks for sharing at Shabbilicious Friday! :) Julie

  23. How lovely this soft and delightful, just like Spring itself!

  24. Your right Jacqueline! That spring light is fabulous. Some of the best photos I have ever taken are in that light. Beautiful images! Thanks for joining HSH!

  25. Hi Jacqueline, we are thrilled to be featuring you at Shabbilicious Friday tomorrow! :) Julie
