  19. If those scrub pads are steel wool or SOS pads, cutting them will sharpen your scissors as a side-benefit.

  48. Hi Carol. I'm so glad you're feeling better (and soon enough to get in a few romps on the beach with ArtMuse before it is closed to her. (That's interesting that they do that-- because of the summer crowds I suppose.) Loved the daffodils (but you knew that!) and all the spring flowers in whatever form you show them.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I loved this beautiful series of photos and love that sweet little dog of yours. Have a great weekend :)

    ReplyDelete
  50. Oh, my! I love the MA coast, Cape Cod, all of it! I adore the uptop photo.

    ReplyDelete
  51. nice quote at the end. Too bad residents and their furry friends can't go on the beach together. But I do see both sides of the argument. We won't think about you getting off the beach for the owners of that yacht! {:-D

    ReplyDelete
  52. Sad that you can't share the beach with your dog all year. If only all dog owners were well-behaved...

    ReplyDelete
  53. So many beautiful shots here... I think my favorite is the magnolia blooms!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Love, love love all the Springtime flower shares here today...but I must confess, the little furbaby photos are my favorites.
    Why are dogs not allowed on the beaches now 'til September? Beach-goers?

    ReplyDelete
  55. I love seeing trees in bloom! Our trees are now sprouting tender green foliage, but it was a pleasure to see it while it lasted. Of course, there are flowers in bloom all over the place. Nice photo shoot! Link up at Curious as a Cathy!

  56. Love those magnolias and the puppy (of course).

  80. I guess spring is finally arriving in your neck of the woods, but it still doesn't look like many leaves on the trees. Dogs aren't allowed on the beach year round? That doesn't seem fair, but I guess necessary. I like the picture with the little toys.
