Dreaming of Spring on the Porch


It's a cold gray February morning ...
but in my heart I am dreaming of spring.
I'm longing for a sunny morning with the light filtering
through the trees and sweet blossoms to brighten the path
to my door.



I'm longing to sit on the porch with a cup of tea
and planning a garden while Bentley
chases the squirrels.



I'm dreaming of clay pots filled with flowers and
sweet little birdhouses.



Ah well ...
Just a dream for now!

Lets go visit some sunny friends ~

Sweet Bentley ~ think of all the fun we will have in the garden
this spring and summer!!

Love,
Susan and Bentley

  3. Lovely shots of your porch! I'm dreaming of Spring on our porch too. I miss having my morning cup of coffee out there. It's snowing again, so I think the groundhog is a liar!

  12. Susan, it's back up in the 70s here again today so it feels like spring. Then tomorrow it is suppose to drop below freezing again for a few days. Our poor trees and plants aren't going to know what to do.
    Lovely images. ~ Sarah

  14. Susan, Beautiful pics. Spring is just around the corner, we just don't know what corner yet. It is like a cool spring day here today but will be freezing my the middle of the week and they say we will have snow again. I hope the weatherman is wrong this time. Hope you have a wonderful fun filled week and give Bentley a big hug for me.

  18. Oh, how I want your house! I'm so glad we are together on the porch today. I made tea also (well, pretend tea. You know I'm a coffee girl. But it just didn't sound as romantic.)

  19. I'm dreaming with you, cause I'm getting a little weary of winter. Don't forget we're supposed to remind each other to buy hollyhock seeds this spring.

    I'm so glad that you stopped by to celebrate Yorkshire Pudding Day with us yesterday.
    It was good to sit on the porch with the two of you and chat for a while about our gardens this morning, roll on Spring.

  31. Hi, Susan. So happy to meet you. We were very cold here last week, but the week before & now this week, temps are back into the 70's and 80's. I don't think the cold damaged anything and we actually have pansies, alyssum & various other things blooming that we planted last fall. Weather every where seems to be so weird, huh? Thanks for becoming a follower and I am now following you.
