A sure sign of Spring!!!! 8-)

Woohoo!!! When walking up our front walk after going to church today, I was excited to see 2 little flowers that have risen out of the earth against our house...The snow is really melting quite quickly now... OH happy day! 8-)

Here is the close up of one little flower...
And here I have circled the little beauties... Click on the photo! They are really there!!! See the snow? I had to show you the snow...how it is receding... 8-)
And here I've got a second carrot done for the Easter table on Sunday... I'm wondering if I'll have time to make one more...?... Something different again... hmmmm...? 8-)
Have a blessed and enjoyable Easter to all my friends, relatives, and blogging buddies... 8-)

I just cannot believe the snow you have there - fancy the poor little flowers struggling to life! It is a wonder anything just springs up naturally. Your carrots are just lovely!

Wow Myra! You are sure chomping your way through those carrots! Is this a bribe for the Easter Bunny to leave extra choccies????

I can imagine your delight at the snow melting and flowers beginning to bloom. :-)

The carrots are very cute. There are no flowers daring to poke their heads out here. I should go looking for crocuses. Maybe there are some of those up in the wild.

The flowers are so pretty! Love your carrots, too. The patchwork one is tempting.....

Hooray for the crocuses! I only have tulip bulbs planted so they won't be up for awhile yet.

The 2nd carrot turned out great!

Julie said...

You must have had your magnifying glass out to find them. lol Glad its warming up for you, if only slowly.

Brenda said...

So exciting when the next season comes along, especially when new flowers poke through the earth. Have a great Monday!

Oh we really are a sad bunch of Manitobans . . . every little tulip tip (I have some!) and little blossom is so very exciting! Especially after this weird Winter and Spring . . . we need to see these little signs that the weather is changing for the better. I really like that checkered carrot - very nice! - Marlene

Myra, what a cute scrappy carrot table topper...I will keep this in mind for next spring. You are so clever to make one like this. That will be a great idea for the watermelon table topper too.
