Garden and Egg Magic

Magical transformations happen in the garden all the time-at least that is how they seem. From dead looking twigs, to little furry buds, to huge, white Clematis flowers.
Green bells must be something that small magical creatures need.
Out of a group of messy pots grows a fat cat!
Future strawberries.
I made this fairy tale worthy golden egg just disappear!

OMG! Spring! We had a bit of Spring in March and now we are having Winter once again! Big storm predicted for today. Still wearing jackets and sweaters! Cats are out for only minutes lately. Thank you for your lovely pics! Gives me hope...lol!

Welcome Spring! I've just cut some freesias from my pots and put them in a milk bootle to keep me company while I clean the kitchen.
Nature is really magical!

WOW magic! A blooming cat and a vanishing golden egg- wow. I love magic...See if you can make me fly or even better- find a CABIN! In advance "Thank you"...
Cassie kitten on my screen saver- so adorable with her fancy socks...

It's a magical time of year isn't it? I like the idea of the disappearing golden egg.

Say, you didn't kill the goose that laid that golden egg, did you? Or was it a rabbit that laid that one in particular?

Fun photos, Sarah. Thanks so much for sharing!

I bet I know it was filled with chocolate! I could make one of those disappear into thin air - if not thin body - years ago in a sigh. Now...I look at them and I can hear my hips growing ;)

Your flowers are beautiful and thank you for sharing them with me. Very little around here still is willing to come up and play. We are expecting our last frost by the 26th and if all goes as planned the tomatoes will come out to play and then the fun will begin in full. Thinking of you and wishing you sunny days.

Spring is probably the most magical time of the year - with fall a close second, I think. Have you ever read a book called "Garden Spells" by Sarah Addison Allen? I think you would like it.
