Saturday Sparks Link Party 558

Welcome to Saturday Sparks 558! 

 Starting off today's party with some sweet blooms!

I picked up these pussy willows at the store the other day and the timing couldn't have been better.

It was the perfect lift for this winter weary gal.

In spite of yet another fresh coat of snow, the inside of our home has taken on all the vibes of spring.

And for this, I am thankful.

In case you were wondering, I placed the branches in water to force the buds to bloom and will remove the water next to let the stems dry.

"The first blooms of spring always make my heart sing."

    Spring has sprung here in the south several times. We'll have an 80 degree day, then a cold snap. Looks like spring is here to stay now & that makes me happy.
