Saturday Sparks Link Party 514

Welcome to Saturday Sparks 514! 

 Starting off today's party with a no regrets impulse buy!


We have a short growing season here in New Hampshire. 

Each spring, I anxiously await planting day which is around the end of May.

This year, I couldn't hold myself back and bought a couple of these Spring Matrix Primrose Pansies'.

I now find myself on babysitting duty keeping a watchful eye on the nightly temps. 

If the thermometer falls a bit too low, they are brought inside for the night.

The joy of seeing these lovely blooms far outweighs any inconvenience my early purchase has caused.

"It is spring again. The earth is like a child that knows poems by heart." 

~ Rainer Maria Rilke

Saturday Sparks Link Party 513

Welcome to Saturday Sparks 513! 

 Starting off today's party with this bristly little guy!

Porcupine at Pieced Pastimes

We have two porcupines that wander about our property all the time.

One is quite large and this is the smaller of the pair.

In recent days, a pair of black labs got loose from just down the road.

Luckily, they were found after being missing for a couple of days.

Unfortunately, they were both found with their faces covered in quills.

I suspect our prickly pair may have been involved.

They are gentle creatures but are more than ready if trouble finds them. 

"Wake not a sleeping lion."

Saturday Sparks Link Party 512

Welcome to Saturday Sparks 512! 

 Starting off today's party with a late night visitor!


This grainy photo from the other night is from one of our house cameras.

This hungry bear wandered all around our house - a bit too close for comfort.

He managed to fill his stomach with our seed filled bird feeder.

It was our own fault, as we hadn't taken it down yet.

Needless to say, it was a lesson learned.

"The best way of being kind to bears is not to be very close to them." 

~ Margaret Atwood

Now, let's get this party started.

First up, the Fabulous Features from Saturday Sparks 511.

Saturday Sparks Link Party 511

Welcome to Saturday Sparks 511! 

 Starting off today's party with some fair-weather friends!

Whitetail Deer in the Field at Pieced Pastimes

This trio showed themselves the other night, just as the sun was starting to set.

We have been enjoying their visits every night for the past few weeks.

It seems to be a common pattern each spring, after a long, cold winter.

The minute our grass starts to show signs of life,  the wildlife appear in droves.

I suspect their visits will taper off as the trees start to bud and there are more food sources available to them.

For now, we will revel in the show. 

"When spring came, even the false spring, there were no problems except where to be happiest.

~ Ernest Hemingway

On another note - just wanted to remind everyone about the new monthly Inspirations Link Party that has started and will be open through the 25th, giving you plenty of time to linkup.

Now, let's get this party started.
