You Capture/Spring

I am joining in on the fun this week of capturing springtime pictures. Beth, over at I should be folding laundry, has this awesome photo awareness going on every week and I was so excited to finally join in. I had so much fun looking around to find signs of Spring that would be unique. I am so proud of my New Garden Gloves. I don't like dirt under my fingernails, unlike my sister, who loves to play in the dirt. When I saw these pink gloves with the breast cancer logo, I had to get them, Big Lots $5. And yes, these are plastic easter eggs in my pot. Just a fun touch until I can plant the flowers. These are some of my little flower garden friends. Can you see the green plants peeking their heads up? This is in my front yard. My tulips are finally popping up. I must have planted about 50 bulbs about 5 years ago and these are the only ones that pop up every year. Join in on the fun and check out all of the Spring pictures and meet some new blogger friends. Thanks Beth for this awesome idea. It made me look around and capture not only on camera, but in my mind, the beautiful nature that God created. My camera is not the most expensive, fancy camera but it meets my needs. It is a Nikon Coolpix S210.

I love your garden gloves! We have so much pink breast cancer awareness stuff in our house. It's all so pretty and for a good cause.
I also love tulips. My mom has a huge tulip bed, and I'd always get so happy when they'd bloom because that told me it was spring and almost my birthday!

I'm glad you joined You Capture. I read a little bit of your blog. Not only is it beautiful, but it's fun! I, myself, don't know if one turtle would be inspiration enough for me to do an extra 20 on the treadmill...but, that's me! ;) Nice Spring photos!

I LOVE your garden gloves... they are not only beautiful and pink to celebrate spring, but so meaningful too. I'm going to find myself a pair around here!

You DID capture spring for me in the most simply elegant ways... and it makes me feel so happy to see the bounty of nature and how you so carefully nurture and watch! Pretty perfect!!!!

Nice captures, but I really want a pair of those garden gloves. Which Big Lots?

Alice said...

Wow! Thank you so much for the comments on my blog, especially the music. I have toyed with the idea of taking the playlist off, thinking no one cared about it but me. So, thank you. I like my music, too, so I will leave it! Thank you for spending time on my page :O).

Your pics feel like spring!

I've been meaning to ask you...Is Amy okay? She hasn't posted in a while and I hope nothing's happened. I thought maybe you'd know.

Erin said...

You need to visit my blog. :)

Alice said...

I'm glad my playlist blessed your day :O). Thanks for letting me know.
