Spring trendsHere’s what I figured out yesterday while I was wandering around Spring decoratingdowntown and running boring errands: You can have a “spring break” anywhere. I was coming from the dry cleaners, juggling some winter clothes I’d picked up with a cappuccino and muffin from the coffee shop, when I saw this joyously fresh silk arrangement. It was brightening the corner of a florist’s and gift shop and I immediately wanted to exchange my jacket and sweaters for a beach bag and my coffee and muffin for shrimp and beer from Joe Patti’s — our favorite seafood market in Pensacola, Fla. Isn’t it amazing what a little bit of spring can do?

  1. What a lovely scene. Thanks, Cathy. Sometimes if I am walking around doing errands and deep in thought, and a stranger smiles at me, it brightens my heart.

  2. I am so glad that spring is finally here (even if I did have to scrape the frost off my car this morning). I’m ready for spring break here.

  3. so true…today we had a high in the 50’s and everyone was walking around like it was in the 80’s hahaha i took a pic of some green popping through the cold ground, it definitely had me looking to warmer days (or dreaming of warmer locations)

  4. I was taken aback yesterday by a field of bright yellow daffodils by the side of the road. That was surely a brief break, but so refreshing.
