I love Lynne's beautiful branch painting. Luckily the winter snow has melted, and spring is finally here. We had gorgeous weather today. This made for some happy spirits. Our moods were also lifted at our house when we received some new friends in the mail: a froglet from Grow a Frog, and four hatching eggs from mcmurrayhatchery.com If all goes well they will hatch into fluffy little chicks three weeks from now. I'm taking a trip to Belgium in ten days, so hopefully I will get back before the chicks hatch, or my husband won't know what to do with them. He's already not too pleased. I'm sure he'll change his mind when he sees them. I hope.
