It's That Time!



It's that time of year when students are studying for final exams...
...and are busy writing papers....



Gardeners are toiling away in their gardens...
...planting and watering and preparing ...



Young children are having first holy communion celebrations...



Couples are falling in love...
...Weddings are taking place...



The sun comes up early...
...the birds wake us up...



...and the outdoor sales and flea markets have begun!

Every weekend now...

Have fun!
:)

It is such a glorious time of the year...not too hot and pretty flowers blooming everywhere, gardens looking hopeful and not scorched...I love your collection of clocks and timepieces... wondering what you will do with them, or do you just enjoy having them around where you can look at them? Thanks for sharing them with us!

Yes the clock faces are a treat, I particularly your arrangement in the first photo. Happy springtime, we are in autumn in the antipoedes, but still quite warm during the day.

I love the clock faces! I wish it would feel just a little more like spring...at the moment I am in Pocatello Idaho where it snowed this morning and could tomorrow, too. Makes my Oregon weather seem much more tame - we at least have flowers blooming everywhere in spite of our cool temps.

these pictures reminded me of a quote i do adore...

“Time is free, but it's priceless. You can't
own it, but you can use it. You can't keep
it, but you can spend it. Once you've lost it
you can never get it back.”
Harvey MacKay

such l♥vely photos and treasures you have shared...warm wishes and brightest blessings~
