green and pink and white

columbine, ready to bloom.
bleeding heart.

a neighbor, enjoying the lawn.
this is one of the latest, longest, most beautiful springs i can remember.
freshly mown grass and mulched flower beds.

still waiting for a bit of work to be done here in CT,
so the house is not quite yet on the market.

it is the bane of my existence.

p.s. today vermont became the first state to require GMO labeling.
another reason to love the green mountain state.


  1. Congratulations to VT for its brave step. Hope this will encourage others to follow.
    Your garden in CT looks beautiful.
    Keep the faith, Karen. It WILL happen.

  2. The fruit of your hard work WILL drop, my friend.
    Thanks for sharing these beautiful pictures of your beautiful spring.


  3. Beautiful photos, Karen. You blog heading took my breath away!
    Your CT house looks fabulous and I can't believe it won't sell quickly. Sending you good thoughts.... xo

  4. Ours has been cold so it's lovely to see your post of spring, thank you xxx

  5. Enough to turn you into a "spring person?" :-) I have never seen the flowering trees and shrubs as beautiful as they are this year - it is a treat - perhaps natures nod to your patience.

  6. Gorgeous spring photos! I love pink and green. And all the other colors as they appear.

    I agree that patience is hard, but you'll get there!

  7. This is indeed an amazing spring! Your yard looks lovely!
    I'm grappling with patience too - the house is on the market because we are up against such a crazy deadline but fear and impatience have set in.

    We just have to trust things will work out as they're meant to, in their own time. I don't know what else to do, personally.
