Signs of spring are everywhere

Flowers, flowers everywhere you look. My daughter was complaining that she couldn't find any cute little girl shoes around so I picked up a pair of cheap canvas sneakers and painted them with flowers in girlie colors.
If you live in CT Laurel Ridge is one of the best kept secrets in the state. Back in 1941 a couple in Litchfield, CT decided to plant some spring flowers on their farm. They kept adding to them year after year and the flowers themselves kept multiplying year after year.
And this is only a small fraction of them on a lovely Sunday stroll with my hubby.
This entire hillside is covered in flowers. Flowers everywhere.
And me thinking ..... hummmmm I know how to plant flowers .......

Great job on the shoes! They're so cute.

Laurel Ridge is gorgeous. Makes me want to go out and plant bulbs in the yard.

Those shoes are adorable, you did a fantastic job.

The springtime flowers are beautiful. My grandfather used to have about an acre of gladiolas that were gorgeous, that picture made me think of that.
