Spring fever?

We spent the day outdoors and I am either really out of shape or my allergies are to blame….for being SO tired tonight! I guess it’s ‘good tired’ but I am beat!


The weather is gorgeous


and there are flowers in bloom everywhere you look.


Even a few surprises in the shrubbery!



Do you ever laugh at the letters you have to type to comment on some of the blogs? I just had to take a photo of this one. Sure hope I don’t have any of these after being outside all day!


I am still crocheting flowers but I wanted to start a good book so I went to the library yesterday. Stacey from  Poofing the Pillows recommended the Rebecca Wells book, “The Crowning Glory of Calla Lily Ponder” so that’s what I’m going to read tonight! Do you have a good book to add to my reading list? I’m too tired to do anything else! heehee!  Have a wonderful Sunday evening! Ahhhh…..CHOOOO!!!



Stacey said...

Oh I hope you like the book as much as I did. :) I've been telling everyone about it.

Your outdoor pictures are beautiful. Aren't the redbuds pretty this year? I love the bunny too.

Enjoy your "good tired". That's my favorite kind.

Hi Diane,

Love all your outdoor photos, sweet bunny, violets and tulips.
Yes, sometimes the word verifications are funny ~ laughed at the cooties.
Night night and have a great sleep.

Oh yes, sometimes those verification words are really funny! suzie x

Unknown said...

Love your photographs today. Just lovely. I have often thought that these words should be recorded in a book somewhere, they really crack me up!


Emily said...

Ha ha, cooties! That's hilarious. I do sometimes wonder if someone is behind those letters, if maybe they're not all computer generated!

Maya @ Completely Coastal said...

Cheers to Spring. It's wonderful!!!

Vee said...

Cooties? Good heavens! I had to laugh when I got a "wowfat" message one day. The nerve! I love the little brown bunny you found in the garden. Too cute!

Brenda Pruitt said...

It's so beautiful outside now! Don't get me started on those little numbers and letters you have to type to comment. I'm starting to choose blogs to read based on whether I have to do that. I'm getting old and cranky.

Janet said...

I'm always tired after spending the day outside in the fresh air. I did hear that this year the pollen counts are extremely high.

I chuckle over some of the word verifications I get, too. Wonder who makes them up???

Happy@Home said...

Everything is looking very pretty in your yard. It is a great time of year to be outside playing. Well, except for that darn pollen.
That's funny about "cooties". I have seen some of the words that make me smile.

Enjoy your reading time.

JG said...

Oh goodness, I always believe that it has to be the allergies! Absolutely nothing else. :)

Now, I am reading and learning about Springfield, MA history - getting ready for the next tour at the Quadrangle.

Beautiful flowers. I would be so excited if I were ever to see a wild bunny in my yard. Yes I do laught at the words we have to type in cometimes. Cooties is just too funny.


Grandma Yellow Hair said...

How funny the word you had to enter. I did a post about those one time...been wondering if you have enter them when you do my sight because I have tried to set it up where you don't have too.
Wish I could recommend a good book for you I have been looking for one myself and have not had any luck lately finding one.
It is probably your allergies making you so tired because so many people are complaining about it.
Take care

Life is just plain funny at your word verification. I get some wing dingers too that make me laugh. Someone should do a whole post just on that has a personality all it's own! I've reading a fantasy book now (I know you are not shocked) and it's called Fablehaven. Two children visit an old grandfather...such a mystery and pure delight!

Janean said...

sweet bunny!!!!!!!!

at least it's nice enough to BE outside, huh? yay!

Dr. Denise Tucker said...

Your bit of NC heaven is looking lovely. My lilacs and roses send their best.

Shirley said...

Ahhh it's true.. allergies and tiredness..but wow, what a beautiful day you had!! I love those flowers you're crocheting...wonderful! As for a good book to add I must say that I'm just buying children's books these days (trying to really build my library) - and so if you don't mind any of these very quick reads, here are my recent books to ponder: The Brothers Kennedy by Kathleen Krull and illustrated by Amy Bates (she's awesome), and Jerry Pinkney's The Lion and The Mouse (no words!) HA..but it did win the Caldecott Medal this's gorgeous. Have a great rest of the week!

Unknown said...

Ah..finally spring is here and I love to see all the flowers as we dont have some of them here. Yes..those word verification does have some funny ones at times. Happy week my friend :)

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

What a cute bunny in your garden! Spring has made the world beautiful.

I laugh at some of the funny word verifications and I'm always happy if I don't have to type one in at all on a blog!

♥ Pat
PS: to answer your comment -- I'm sure there may be a photo or two of me in my blog ...I think in some of my posts about Ireland. Since I am the one taking almost all the photos I don't remember to ask for one of me! LOL I guess I'm a little "camera shy"

My favorite books you probably have already read. I am a fan of John Steinbeck and keep his works on my nightstand. And..I just bought a new book at a garage sale..which I have heard is one you won't want to put down..but that changes from person to person. It is The Other Queen by Philippa Gregory. I am going to start it tonight.
