A new look (184)

I know it's a little premature, but I felt the need for a little bit of spring fever! The snowdrops and crocuses are in full bloom, and the daffodils are rapidly making their presence felt. It's starting to be light when I get up, I don't always need gloves when I go out, and I'm really getting a feeling that spring is on it's way now - hence the new look to my blog. What do you think?

I think it looks great, and I like the way that the flowers stay stationery when you scroll.

Very pretty! Love the new look. I am curious how you got the flowers and such on the sides of your blog. I would love to do something like that. I hate having all that blank space on either side of my blog. I am gonna have to check into that.
Have a Blessed Day,
Diane

It looks great. I think spring is just about in the air. We did some gardening at the weekend, can't wait for the flowers to bloom.

Wonderful! It's so cold here today - but bright and sunny (just like your new blog!)- my daffodils are blooming - but way too cold - and way too cold for living in the south.

Lovely template. Very spring like. The first Daffodils have been out for about a week and the meteo is forecasting 16°C on Thursday. Looks like Spring has finally arrived.

Love the spring look - understand how you feel. I made a spring wallhanging for my office this weekend. I'm beginning to think we may never see spring here - 14 inches of snow in the last 2 weeks! Last night it came with freezing rain - oh joy! I love reading blogs where the daffodils and other spring flowers are popping up - gives me hope!

A very cheery new look to your blog. Daisies are such happy flowers. I wish spring would hurry up and come to Georgia to stay.

Fabulous but you could have warned me. Next time I'll wear the sunglasses.

Love and hugs Gina xxx

Oh my! This is very pretty, Amanda. I'm seeing several bloggers coming up with a different look and it's making me crazy. I want to do something different, too but I can't get myself motivated. Sheesh! Your blog has such a breath of spring to it. Wonderful!

Anything to bring spring on....and we are still in a hot burnt Australian summer.
But the weather is so odd that my Magnolia Stellata ...normally spring flowering is flowering before the leaves have dropped.
Or maybe it is flowering because the leaves were burnt off in the hot wind of Black Saturday and the bushfires.
Looks very odd......wish we could jump to spring and stay there for a while.
