We recently traveled to Rhode Island to begin our summer schedule of Antiques Shows starting with the J & J Field at Brimfield this week.
Our first impression was that our corner of Rhode Island hadn't been told - It Is Spring! On a sunny day last week I set out for my walk along these country roads. I began by admiring our magnolia tree - the one sign of spring in our very dreary yard.
The sky was the most wonderful blue - a blue we don't ever quite see in California. It was definitely a "good to be alive day"! But just look at those bare branched trees.
Looking down - the dandelions are here - and wait - there are teeny flowers mixed in - so very close to the ground.
And this wonderful patch of purple color - again so very close to the ground -
And a stray brave flower that knows Spring is here -
A few trees are trying to wake up - so slowly.
Yellow is definitely the color of Spring - Forsythia!
A few remaining daffodils -
And Marsh Marigolds -
The sound of the babbling water adds to the joy of this day!
Wonderful color in a neighbor's yard -
And home to my beautiful magnolia
And to find that the Osprey have returned again this year to their nest high up in our tall pine tree.
Yes - Spring is showing itself in Little Compton a little more each day!
