Just Waiting


Just waiting IMPATIENTLY for a little warmer weather and sunshine!!!



So far, so good! What do you think?  I will have butterflies in my courtyard one way or another!!



A closer view!



My "wonderful gardener" is helping.



Time to bring out the spring looking table runner.  Maybe it will help warmer weather to hurry along.



Thought I would post a picture of a quilt I worked on while we were full-timing.



The raspberry pies have been few and far between since we have moved here for "wonderful gardener".  It helps to "butter" up my gardener once in awhile!



I thought when making the pie why not measure out the flour and salt for two more pies!  Did it save me time????  Maybe a couple of minutes!  LOL  Thank you for visiting.  I would love it if you would leave a comment!

Love the planter boxes. Those are really pretty.
I am with you - so ready for planting - but still having too many cool days.
It won't be long.

mmmmmmmm - raspberry pie!
Blessings

It's hard to be patient this time of year, isn't it? I'm chomping at the bit to get outside as well. Hopefully your pretty table runner will work to bring you Spring!
And that pie looks sooooo tasty! Yes-we need to keep those hubbies happy!

Betsy said...

Oh my ! That pie! I'll be right over. Will your gardener share with me? I have never thought of measuring out the dry ingredients in advance. It's a great idea. I really like your planter boxes...I'm so ready for spring, but I guess it's not ready for me. Have a lovely day!
Blessings,
Betsy

I like the butterfly/planters and look forward to seeing what you'll plant in them.

Margaret said...

That pie looks delicious! We do a lot of buttering at my house too ;) Those planters are lovely although I have a feeling you'll likely see a few real butterflies grace your garden this year too. Hopefully we will both we out working in the garden very soon...maybe even tomorrow :)

Hi Cheryl, Thank you! I think I will enjoy them. I will probably put herbs in the planter boxes and flowers in the pots against that wall I am hoping that Coco will not eat the herbs! Nancy

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi Sue, Patience is not my best virtue! I am looking forward to seeing your huge garden beds again this year! Nancy

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi Betsy, I am sure my gardener would share a piece of pie with you but I am sorry to say there is none left! I think every person that is a gardener or loves to be outside is impatient about this time of year! Nancy

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi Margaret, Yes I do hope we will be able to spend more time outdoors soon. I am not sure if I will have real butterflies or not. I tried in my previous yard and was so happy when I saw one or two. Not sure what to expect here. Nancy

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi Granny Marigold, Hope your having a wonderful day! It will be interesting to see what will grow in those planters! Nancy

Connie said...

Hi Nancy, looks like you are getting ready for Spring, it's just coming later this year. That quilt is beautiful, you are a lovely quilter and pie baker. Your pie looks so yummy; I'll just bet hubby enjoyed that :)
Have a great week.
Connie :)

Hi Connie, Thank you for the compliments. Your so sweet! And yes, I am getting ready for spring and pushing it too much probably! Enjoy your week. Nancy

Cat Lover said...

Your new planter boxes look great! We finally are enjoying some Spring-like weather here too.
Have a wonderful week!
P.S....your pie looks delicious!

Hi Cat Lover, Thanks! I hope spring weather stays around for both of us!! You have a wonderful week also! Nancy

Bee Lady said...

awww those little gloves with the yellow ribbing. They are identical to a pair I found the other day. They belong(ed) to the little guy I used to babysit. He would garden with me. He graduates from high school next month. I'm so ready for spring! The pie looks yummy!

Hi Bee Lady, Since we both live in IN we are probably both experiencing the same kind of weather! It sort of teases us with one nice day and then cold and lots of rain! Have a wonderful Easter. Nancy

Gloriade said...

Oh my, Nancy! I love you pictures today. The planters look wonderful, ths quilt is gorgeous and I am ready for a slice of that delicious looking pie. I hope you will be able to plant soon.

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi Gloriade, Thanks! I am glad that you enjoyed them. I have a few greens and peas up and can't wait for the nice weather to be here and stay! Nancy

Pam Jackson said...

Cute little planters in the garden. Love the pop of color in the butterflies. It is always fun to have help in the garden. Enjoy.

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi Pam, I am glad that you left a comment for me on my blog! Hope you will visit again. I want my yard to grow things but I like it to look cheery also! Nancy

Debbie - Mountain Mama said...

I can't wait to see what you plant on your courtyard, Nancy! And I'd be happy to take a slice of that raspberry pie off your hands :)

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi Debbie from Mountain Mama, I can't wait to see what I can grow here with the shade and Coco. Would love to have you over for a slice of pie! Nancy

Julie said...

Hello Nancy, just popping over for a visit to your blog - you are waiting for spring while we welcome autumn here in my part of the world. Your butterflies & planters will be gorgeous - I look forward to seeing them filled with flowers. And that pie ... Oh My !! I wish I could just reach into the screen & take a slice, it looks so delicious. Have a wonderful Easter Nancy. Julie from New Zealand xxx

Hi Julie, Thanks! Yes, I always get anxious this time of year to garden! I have not been baking pies often enough it seems. So nice to have you visit and hope you have a nice Easter too. Nancy
