  1. you are just killing me with cuteness! so clever, what a treat to “know” you~

  2. Now, HOW did you know that I was going to ask where you got those “wellies”??? I am a fellow Target worshipper!! I think quite possibly I could live there! Thank you so much for sharing your creative awesomeness with us Mary!! Hugs to the girls!!

  3. Mary,
    I always enjoy my visits to your world, your fabulous photographs sometimes really do take my breath away.
    Stunning spring flowers and how clever to use those brightly colored wellingtons as planters.
    They make my hunter green wellies so envious!

    Very pretty Mary! I’ve been wanting gardening/rain boots for quite some time now, love yours! Happy Spring:@)

    The floral wellies are so sweet! Maybe I can spruce up my navy blue and green ones ;o)

  6. LOL how cute! Adorable flower-filled Wellies. Pretty mosaics, too! Enjoy spring at the lake!

  7. As always, a beautiful post, Mary (are you getting tired of my same comments? LOL. I might start just writing “ditto” and you’ll know what I mean). But it IS beautiful, and fresh and different. Love it. What a nice way to start my day! Thanks! Zuni

  8. PS – Please ignore the “new” name–it’s an old WordPress blog I don’t use and for some reason it’s popping up now. :( It’s still Chickadee Home Nest. ~Zuni

  9. HI Mary,
    As I emerge from my lowest of lows, I am once again able to enjoy your beautiful and creative posts. Love the flower filled rain boots with the lake view in the background. Great photos! Carolyn NC

  10. What a bountiful bevy of blossoms (spring brings out the alliteration in me) looking beautiful in those beguiling boots!

  11. What a gorgeous celebration for the First Day of Spring! I can almost smell the fresh sweetness of those Spring flowers.

    Oh, those wellies……..I think a trip to Target is in my future!

  12. What gorgeous photos,Mary! I am ready to go out and plant now! I love those colorful boots. xo

  13. Oh Mary the flowers are of course beautiful but your boots make it all. Such a darling touch of whimsey. And with your pretty blue chair and that gorgeous lake….well what more can one ask for. We still have snow here and I’m am so thinking spring. Thanks for sharing yours. It gives me hope that maybe someday we’ll actually have it here! (smile)


  14. Fantastic Post and such beautiful pictures!

  15. WOW!!! What a gorgeous collection of individual shots and collages. You have certainly put a lot of hard work into this lovely post. You definitely have that spring in your step. Adore the galoshes…wellingtons…they are just sososo cute. The photo you took at an angle is awesome. It has to be one of my favorites of the evening. It is a real eye catcher. Everything about this post is stunning. Kudos. genie

  16. I would love to join you for an iced tea and sit in that chair among those beautiful flowers.

  20. Such gorgeous color, and beautiful spring scenes, skillfully captured, as always. I love those wellies! I’m going to Target this weekend. I planted a pair of duck boots last year (That you can see here: http://tinyurl.com/6crl62n), but the heat and sun took quite a toll on them. Time for something new. I always leave your blog full of inspiration and enthusiasm.
