And it's because today is the first day of SPRING !!
I loooove Spring, it's my favourite time of year! The flowers are blooming, the trees are covered in new leaves, lambs are frolicking in the fields, baby deer are being born surrounded by forests full of bunnies and cute lil skunks...Oh wait, thats Walt Disneys spring...not mine...LOL...but you get my drift anyway!

But spring around here does mean plenty of frolicking in the sunshine for boys named Sam...

and pussy cats doing not-so-much frolicking but still soaking up the sunshine in their own unique way.

AND for me....well i get to wear my new open toe shoes without my poor toes turning blue from the freezing cold. (see the blingy ones...Sam chose them for me!)

And it also means that at around 2pm when the sun comes around the western side of my sunny spot is ready for me to enjoy with a good book.

And it also means that pussy cats can catch those last rays of warm sunshine late in the afternoon on mummys sofa and bed *smiles*

So bring on a little bit of Sunshine, Warmth and Love i say......and now i must put down the chocolate bar and get on that treadmill *phooey* I miss winter....*wink*

Lotsa Love N Pink Springy Kisses !

I too love springtime!!
I love the sunshine with the crispness in the air and the wattle trees all in bloom!
And how nice is it to see bees around again!!
As for your Puddy cats I reckon they have a great idea...It looks like a rather inviting spot to while some hours away!!

Yeah for Spring, I love spring, but I love Autumn better because that is when Easter is...and you know every present you get is chocolate!! What is not to love about that. Of course we don't have such huge changes of weather in Queensland besides it is really really really hot or bearable. Happy Spring!! Kiss noises Linda Lilly if I get a choice I am coming back next life as a cat!!!

Hi Shan, I just love your sunny spot, and yes I agree this is the best time of the year. It makes you feel like you want to get out of bed in the mornings and do stuff. I adore your pictures, and reading your blog, you are a very creative person. Thank you for sharing. Cheers Debra.

And it's starting to look like Fall around here =) I still can't get over how you have Christmas in the Summer.

Hope things are well. I haven't been visiting as much lately. Things have been so busy. I did try to email 3 or 4 times about that other package but hadn't heard back from you. I sure hope that it finally arrived!! (I had usps put a tracking on it). Let me know though.

Blessings... Polly

I love Spring, too...except the magpies! We live in fear all Spring that they will swoop us as we go on walks. Haha

It's so funny to hear you talk of spring while we are headed into fall and cooler weather! When we get snow I will have to run to your blog to see flowers and sunshine!
Enjoy your spring!

lucky lucky you~! Our weather has just changed and it quickly went from summer to fall. Hoping we have a few summer days thrown in there before the snow falls! Great shoes! It looks like you have beautiful floors in your home. Just my type!

Hi Shann,
I can remember doing my post last March saying "can I wear my flip flops yet" and here it is the end of summer and I am soooo happy. I am ready for cooler weather. I guess that is why I love the change of seasons. I'm happy for you for spring is delightful, everything has new life.
