Spring is coming...it is HONEST!!!

Spring simply must be coming because I am now the proud owner of this little pink chick...and chick's are born in spring right???...or at least near Easter because chick's are associated with Easter...anyways I bought the chick from the same place (Left Bank Books, Searsport) I purchased these lovely little boxes of Italian candy/sweets....aren't they adorable, look - the pink one says "Fairy Wood Fragrance", doesn't get any better than that!! The chick decided on his own about the red ball.....
...and then there's this sign....the very tiny tips of daffodils, I just spotted them this morning and I am thrilled...this winter may really, in fact, END!!!
Then there's this sign...the shadow can only mean one thing...SUNSHINE! ...and thank goodness temperatures above 32F/oC, the snow is melting...I am so happy!!!...anyone who has made it through this winter in Maine knows exactly how I feel...congrats to all of us if we haven't been institutionalized!!

Yay! Even though I love snow, I couldn't imagine it for a WHOLE winter!
We have a wonderful spring-like day here too!

Hello!! so happy and surprised to see your daffodils sneaking up.. maybe there is hope for mineas we aren't too far away geographically ...
I noticed a bookstore on your sidebar... very similiar to an historically correct home built in the city of Saint John, New Brunswick a few years ago...

Your work, recipes and blog are simply lovely!!!

Patricia,
I went right down to Left Banks and bough a pink chick just like yours. How could I resist? It goes with my pink kitchenaid mixer. Sorry to be a copycat.
