    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!!

    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!

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

    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

    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

    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

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

    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!

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

    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)

    Fantastic Post and such beautiful pictures!

  15. March 20, 2012 at 9:42 pm

    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

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

    Mary, your blog is a Zen garden for me. I love coming here…

    Calling by as another Outdoor Wednesday participant, lovely photos and the wellies are just great!

  19. March 21, 2012 at 1:37 pm

    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.

  20. March 25, 2012 at 8:18 pm

    Beautiful Spring, Mary! I love the wellies.

  21. March 25, 2012 at 8:24 pm

    Lovely spring images! The boots are so cute and a great idea. Happy Spring!

  22. March 25, 2012 at 8:26 pm

    Beautiful color! And certainly looks like spring!

  23. March 25, 2012 at 8:40 pm

    Just beautiful and I love the whimsical boots as vases.

  24. March 25, 2012 at 8:44 pm

    Lovely and clever post! Your post titles are always so good. The boots are too wonderful! Happy Spring!

    I have a spring in my step every time this time of year rolls around also. Love the boots and the blooms are gorgeous! I have started a new linky party, “Share Your Cup Thursday”. I would love for you to share sometime!

    I believe it with all these lovely flowers and such a view…but the boots I’m not so sure you can have a real good spring in any step with those! ha ha!

  33. March 28, 2012 at 7:11 pm

    fantastic shots — adore the wellies.

  34. March 28, 2012 at 8:42 pm

    A riot of colour as found in your garden would certainly put a spring in my step too!
    The wellies make a cute planter…and Target is coming to Canada. Yah!

  35. March 28, 2012 at 9:14 pm

    Spring really has sprung around here too! You have such beautiful flower pictures, and I just love the boots!

  36. March 28, 2012 at 9:45 pm

    I am going to Target!!!!!!!

    Lovely! I have “almost” picked those sweet little Wellies up a couple of times… But here in the desert we just don’t have much call for them. :)
    DARLING! :)
