Swinging into spring

I've got spring fever. The weather is starting to get nicer but I haven't seen any flowers popping up yet. I keep seeing signs of it on other blogs. Well if I can't have flowers, I'll make my own.
Yeah I know, Duke's a boy and I shouldn't be sticking him in a flowery picture. He just sort of snuck in there, honest.

It's spring here, but then it gets on the cold side for a day or two then back to 75°. I wish it would just stay in the 70s for a bit.

I think Duke looks just fine in all those flowers. If he gets cranky about it you can always remind him that when the flowers arrive he'll be outside in all those flowers and this isn't much different.

Have a terrific day. :)

Woof! Woof! Duke ... How nice. Your mom did a great job. LOVE it! I can't wait for the Spring flowers to bloom too. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

digiVickie said...

awwww, that's priceless :)

tahtimbo said...

Duke seems secure enough in his manhood to handle a few flowers :)
I see signs of Spring around here, but the next day the temperature will plummet and we are right back into Winter. Oh well, come the end of May, the garden goes in!!

Duke looks cute anywhere he is even if surrounded by pink flowers! It was a lovely spring day here today but tomorrow it drops back down into the 50s and the rain returns. Oh well, I have to work anyway so can't enjoy nice weather.

VanillaSeven said...

I love the cartoony treatment you did for Duke :)

Lin said...

Spring is for girls AND boys!! I think he looks very manly there with all those flowers.

Ratty said...

Even though Duke's a boy, I think it's okay. I don't think dogs worry about it too much, as long as they get to bark at somebody every once in a while to show how tough they are. :)

Grace said...

That is totally delightful. More painting than pic...I am always in awe of how you folks do cool stuff like this.

DK Miller said...

That's lovely Ann. I finally have a few flowers poking through the ground. Took some pics of them yesterday. May go document their progress tomorrow. But you made lovely flowers! I wish I had such talents. :-)

Mee2 said...

I haven't seen any real flowers yet. Some grass, and some purple flowery things that are nothing but weeds, but I guess it's something. I love the picture. Makes me want to dance freely in a field with all of my dogs. Duke can come along too, if he wants.

January said...

Ooppps! Sorry I'm late for your birthday! Anyway just want to greet you HAPPY BIRTHDAY, better late than never...
BTW I'm sending an Easter Egg Basket to you.. check out my blog...
Have a Nice day!

January said...

And Duke is so cute... I want to hug him...

allotments4you said...

This is a lovely edit and Duke definitely deserves to be there with all of his cuteness factor!!!

fullet said...

He, he, I love it. Duke seems to ask you what exactly is he doing there. Well, he's inspiring us. So lovely!

Duni said...

Oooh, those are just my colours - and Duke looks adorable surrounded by the pretty flowers. I'm sure he doesn't mind for once :)

FishHawk said...

I don't think you need to worry about Duke's image. For he is secure enough in his awesomeness to be stylin' and profilin' anywhere!

Grampy said...

Hi Ann. We have the Daffodils and crocus popping up.But your flower is precious because it has Duke in it. You did an excellent job with it as usual.

Alterity Button Jewelry said...

I like that theory...can't see any flowers? Make your own!

Bossy Betty said...

We are surrounded by flowers here in California, but none of them have cute little dogs like Duke in them!

Me-Me King said...

That Duke, he's a tricky one alright. Love, love, love your graphics!

Sharkbytes (TM) said...

But he's so cute, he won't mind. I'm longing for green and color too, as you know.

Buggys said...

Duke looks pretty happy to be in the flowers.
I am seeing some green shoots coming up in my day lily bed! Happy day..

Poetic Shutterbug said...

Jude said...

I'm sure Duke doesn't mind because he looks so cool. I haven't seen much around here either although I do see some new growth on my rose bush which I thought the snow killed.

Ann said...

Jude Duke seems ok with it and hopefully I can take some picture of him in real flowers soon

Leeuna said...

Flowers and puppy dogs, two of my very favorite things. Duke is adorable. We have a few daffodils blooming in our yard and they are such a welcome sight. Sigh! I'm so happy that winter is behind us. You have a very lovely and interesting blog. I'll be sure to check it out often. Thanks for stopping by my bog and leaving a comment.

Ann said...

Leeuna, I wish we had daffodils coming up, hopefully it won't be much longer. I enjoyed my visit to your blog and look forward to going back again.
