welcome spring


Today is the first full day of spring!! A little celebration is in order, don'tcha' think!!
First off...a little spring knitting! 


Party favors...check!


I'm well into the toe of the second Angel sock...it's amazing how much knitting I can get accomplished once a grant is out the door!

I went to the local nursery and picked up a few color spots to plant in the garden. A little too rainy to get them planted...but oh my! How they brighten up the garden just the same!


Back to those party favors...yum. Oatmeal raisin cookies with a kick...you can find the recipe here. I substituted raisins for the chocolate chips as Mr. NK really, really likes oatmeal raisin cookies.

I hope your spring is off to a good start, and your Monday as well!!
Happy, happy Spring!!

Gail, your spring post is wonderful--it's snowing here in CT! Everything is covered--every single branch and blade--with white. So thank you for this! Love the, um, party favors ;)

Love all the fresh color...your images are divine...and the sweets so tempting, perfect combination.

Beautiful. As always. It's a bit too early to get too excited by the nursery. Although we really should go through our seeds and see what else we need. Our last freeze date is May 15th, so we have a ways to go yet.
