Spring is Here!

The calendar says it's official - spring arrived yesterday, March 20!

With the time change last weekend providing longer daylight hours, there's more time to enjoy the beauty of nature. And I've been doing just that, snapping pictures of the flowers in my new-to-me yard. 

Starting at the top left, I've found beautiful white calla lilies, fuschia azaleas, cheery daffodils, a clump of bluebells, lovely hellebores, and a flowering tree I don't know the name of but the hummingbirds like it!

Such a pleasure to discover! Now I can't wait to find out what all the fruit trees are - hopefully they'll provide some fruit this year to solve the mystery.

All of that floral beauty really puts me the spring mood. And how better to further my enjoyment than with my Spring Fling table runner?

I made mine on a navy background to make those flowers pop, though any color combo would look great!

Something else that's always associated with spring is strawberries. They were my late mother's favorite, and they were always in the store around her March 5th birthday - certainly a perfect gift! 

She enjoyed hers as they were, but now I've gotten a bit fancy and dressed them up with a bit of chocolate. I wish she was here for the decadence of Chocolate Dipped Strawberries!

Now that I have two spring favorites, flowers and strawberries, I can enjoy them together in Strawberry Splendor.

This is my favorite spring wall hanging - easy to paper piecing, a bit of applique, and wonderful quilting, especially the trapunto strawberries in the border. I am seriously in the mood for spring! 

Happy Spring!
