Not sure if this is a test…but I can’t see any Forsythia in this picture 🙂

nrhatch - March 19, 2011

There is no forsythia in the photo, but it’s one of my favorite heralds of Spring . . . so I wanted to mention it. 😀

The other flower in the vase is Rose of Sharon.

thank you, I was wondering why I seemed to have gone stupid

Again, thanks for the pingback! Your photo reminds me of one of my favorite photo that was taken by a former sister-in-love (still a good friend). It was of her cat, sound asleep, with his forelegs (arms) wrapped lovingly around the goldfish bowl, her head resting on the side of the bowl. Priceless photo. I’ll see if she can dig it up for me, and i’ll post it.

nrhatch - March 19, 2011

Ooh, please do ~ I would love to see it & Tigger does too. 😎

Cute picture! I love daffodils. 🙂

nrhatch - March 19, 2011

Paula has some wonderful photos of daffodils gracing the roadway on her recent posts.

Having a bouquet of Spring flowers centered on the table always makes me smile. 😀

4. Tilly Bud - March 19, 2011

What a cheerful photo!

nrhatch - March 19, 2011

It always makes me smile. 😀

Spring is a great season – new beginnings, new life, etc.
This is a beautiful photo – just look at Tigger’s face, so serene!
btw, thanks so much for the pinkback!

nrhatch - March 19, 2011

You’re welcome. I love your joyous lambs celebrating Spring by springing about!

Tigger is a feisty fellow who is sometimes mellow. 🙂

6. Rosa - March 19, 2011

That kitty is a natural born model!!

nrhatch - March 19, 2011

Isn’t he? He the most photogenic of the family, that’s for sure. 😀

7. phrogmom - March 19, 2011

beautiful cat!!

nrhatch - March 19, 2011

Thanks! We think so. 🙂

8. ClassyRose - March 19, 2011

Hi Nancy, thanks for the mention. I love your cat, he has such an inquisitive look on his face. 🙂

nrhatch - March 19, 2011

He loves having his picture taken.

If I point the camera at him, he looks right at it until he hears the click.

ClassyRose - March 20, 2011

My cats are inquisitive too, but they come to check out the camera and I don’t have a chance to grab the photo. 🙂

nrhatch - March 20, 2011

I think Tigger must have been a movie star in a previous life. He’s always been a natural in front of the camera. 😎

ClassyRose - March 20, 2011

Tigger looks like he could be in the movies. Thanks again for the mention. 😛

nrhatch - March 20, 2011

You’re more than welcome, Rose. I love linking up on “shared challenges.” 😀

Beautiful 🙂
But I’m slightly peeved, does the WordPress prompter not realise that WordPress has global users and that it is not spring all over the world?

viewfromtheside - March 20, 2011

We can just do posts on autumn sagging………

nrhatch - March 20, 2011

WordPress is world-wide . . . but the focus of the prompter is less global and more myopic than that. 😎

I don’t worry much about the prompts. If they seem relevant and interesting, I may use them. If not, I toss them.

LOL at Sidey.

What is the pinky-mauve thing. It looks like our wild garlic, but i’m not quite sure,

I simply love spring flowers, but unfortunately have never been really successful with bulbs…

nrhatch - March 20, 2011

I’ve had less success with bulbs I’ve planted than with bulbs I’ve inherited from previous homeowners. 😀

12. eof737 - March 20, 2011

Adorable! Is that cat yours? Looking forward to spring. 🙂

nrhatch - March 20, 2011

That’s our guy . . . Tigger! 😎

I don’t remember whether I lamented on your blog that our courtyard trees had no buds while all the other trees seemed to be greening up. I’ve been spreading my woe around the Internet. Finally these trees have budded and everyday they get prettier!

Your photo is precious. I don’t remember craving spring this much since the blizzard of 1978 in southeastern Michigan and northern Ohio. It seemed that the soiled snow was never going to melt, but, of course, it did, and spring came. God is good. Blessings to you, Nancy…

The blogosphere is wonderful in that it expands our awareness of what is going on outside our back door.

But it can also be a “curse” when others have what we are longing to receive ~ including the arrival of Spring.

Here’s to the Vernal Equinox ~ longer days and shorter nights. 😎

Wow.. funny…
A cat takes place in a spring topic-picture *and the rabbit as well… :mrgreen:

nrhatch - March 22, 2011

Glad to share a smile. Sydney reminds me of Spring.
