Thinking Spring

Our month in Florida provided sunny days for walks and swimming in the pool every day. We were sad to leave but happy to get back to our own home and luckily missed a snowstorm by one day.
The weather in southern Ontario is going to feel like spring for a few days and I can't wait until these temperatures stay and gradually climb.
Linking with Friday's Hunt our challenge for this week is the letter 'J', my favourite and 'a cuppa'.
A vase of spring bulbs with fantail pussy willow is my favourite this week. It's an older photo I took at Canada Blooms one year.
This is hemerocallis 'Judith', a gorgeous pink daylily that graces my front garden in the summer.
Today I started putting away the snowmen and snowflake decor to pull out some spring colours. A few of the napkins that are now in the tea cupboard sat on the table while I had my afternoon 'cuppa'.

  5. Three lovely things. The stack of napkins on the table with your teacup looks just as if someone from days gone by was sorting through their linen cupboard. A wonderful tradition you are carrying forward.

  13. Wonderful spring bulbs, dear Judith, and "your" hemerocallis is very beautiful, of course.
    "Our month in Florida" sounds fabulous, but I guess it's always lovely to come back home.
    Are those napkins with lilac edging your favourites? They are so very pretty! :)
    Have a great weekend! xx

  16. Pulling out the spring decor is going to help I think. Gosh that month went by way too fast. Glad that you missed the snowstorm...good timing. We are heading for more temperate weather...this week has been brutally cold...the kind that makes my back seize. LOL! I do know how to exaggerate a bit...love hyperbole.

  17. Hi Judith, We are expecting warmer temps this week too - 60s for highs all week! Yay!
    Your photo of the spring flowers is lovely. I have some tulips on my table and have been enjoying them immensely. You have many pretty tea linens/napkins. Have a wonderful week, Judith!

  20. The daylilies with your name are beautiful. No snow here, but one day raining, the next day frost, than rain again. So bad for our plants in the garden. Love your springflowers, it´s time to welcome spring.

  21. Welcome home, Judith! Your daylilly named Judith, must be beautiful in your yard in the summertime. It's nice to get out some spring things and enjoy a cuppa tea. It's always good to get home.

  22. Hi Judith ~~ I like your flower selections, you always have such pretty things. Yes, put the winter stuff away, spring is coming. Did you know that in the Houston, Texas, area that we so far haven't had a freeze? I don't mind but the mosquitos are already having a ball.
    Thank you for peeking in and for leaving your nice comment. I am sorry that I missed my visit to you before. You were second on the Mr. Linky signup.

  23. Tulips are my absolute favorite flowers. Just looking at your photo made me smile today. Thank you for that

  24. A cuppa and time to ponder spring dΓ©cor and gardens is a pleasant time. The vase with pussywillow and spring bulbs is lovely. I am always impressed with the flower arrangements I see at flower shows and fairs. I don't get much beyond simple arrangement placed in a vase or jar, but even so, a bouquet of flowers , no matter how small or simple brightens a room and lifts the spirit.

  35. Good morning, Judith! Although it's almost afternoon there :)

    Spring is indeed making her sweet presence known. We have been enjoying spring-like temperatures and just last week I saw a robin which I was tickled pink about!

    Your photos are simpy lovely and very refreshing. Hugs to you!

  42. Judith you really have the best of both worlds, getting back from your Florida trip just in time for Spring flowers. I really do miss home this time of year (Oregon). Thanks so much for hosting... We've had computer issues, and I am horribly late visiting.

  43. We just returned from visiting family in very warm AZ and CA....it was a great break from the cold but oh hard to get used to the gray, rain and chilly days here....glad you had a wonderful time.
