And Spring Came in a'Springing

Has Spring Come to Your House Yet?

Along with tons of pollen, Spring has come a'springing at our house.

How better to share it with you than from my camera?

Snapdragons are happy, happy, happy right now.
 We Southerners love our Azaleas and they are just about to explode in Northwest Louisiana.

We love hearing the early morning chirping and cooing of birds, and one family decided to make their new home up close and personal.  They were quite ambitious by the size of some of the twigs they thought they could use for building materials.

With all the evidence of spring outside, I thought I also needed to bring some inside.
 The wooden bird was carved by a street vendor in Jamaica several years ago.
Through the years we have acquired a number of Andrea porcelain birds that I treasure.  So I decided to display a couple of the smaller ones on the coffee table.
 This one is musical and was given to me many years ago by a very special friend.
 I found this adorable tray at Tuesday Morning several weeks ago and thought it was perfect for my spring coffee table.
 I love the whimsy of the feather and twine balls in this arrangement.
 Some of my other Andrea birds are kept in my secretary along with a 1978 Limited Edition Lenox Plate of Boehm Birds titled "Mockingbirds."
 And, this is my cozy early evening living room bedecked for spring.
You will notice I even added a couple bird pillows on the sofa.
One of mine and my husbands favorite feature of our home is the effect of the morning sun as it plays in our living room.
  As you celebrate Spring and Easter in your home, my prayer is that you will know and celebrate the Peace of the Risen Lord and the Light He brings into your life.

Hello, My name is Libby. I enjoy reading good books, painting, blogging, spending time with friends and whatever my "Heart" leads me to do. Welcome to Beauty Without Within.


  1. I enjoyed all of your lovely photos, the flowers are perfect!

  2. Gorgeous spring flowers! We are not blooming here yet, although finally the forsythias are opening up. Yest we're two months behind! My daughter is home on spring break from South Carolina, and we were sitting on the patio which looks out on woods. She commented that the trees are completely bare still. But there are tiny buds, so that's something! And we've hit 70 degrees a couple of times which I am loving! Just hoping the potential 'flurries' are a miss tomorrow.

  3. I so enjoyed your glorious flowers and
    sweet birds. A friend told me about
    two bluebirds who have laid eggs in
    a nest outside her window. They
    really look like the birds who helped
    Cinderella. :)


I do love reading your comments, so please share your thoughts with me.
