Welcoming Spring- A New Beginning

Tul 650

Welcome Spring— A fresh start with a bit of a fresh look for DipityRoad.(I will still be tweaking my blog a bit for the next while) but I wanted to get “back in the game” after finishing up the crazy madness around designing homes for new home builders. (the April 30Th deadline for the government $8,000 tax incentive.)



I have always loved visiting some of my favorite blogs that have accompanying music.
To the Right of all my posts will be the Music Box– If the song doesnt suit you… TURN IT OFF –>
Having to dig through someones entire blog to find their player has always been a crazy pet peeve of mine. So– listen or not to listen — YOUR CHOICE — easy to find.

Song Choice for today: Gabriel’s Oboe  Yo-Yo Ma

Tulip Spring 10 650

Returning to, what is becoming a yearly adventure, Thanksgiving Point’s Tulip Festival; I once again found myself strolling along pathways of tulips, daffodils and pansies that touch my soul. In their messages of rebirth and beauty I can not help but wonder, who could walk amongst them without painting a picture, writing a poem or composing a song? (at least in their heart)

Only as high as I reach can I grow

Only as far as I seek can I go

Only as deep as I look can I see

Only as much as I dream can I be

I will be participating with Beverly and all my friends for Pink Saturday!
Please stop by some of their lovely spots and see what they are celebrating today.

On Monday it’s time to visit Mary at Little Red House — her work is stunning and so are all your participants.

Also, Susan at Between Naps on the porch has always got major things hopping over there.

Thanks so much for stopping by– I would love a comment– and By the way… what are your pet peeves in BLOG LAND??

TTFN~~ Claudia ♥ ♥

    What a wonderful way to start my Saturday morning…music gentle to my ears, images so gorgeous.  Pet peeve: hmmm…..not sure it’s a pet peeve because I kind of laugh them off but the bloggers who tell me I’m not doing things right  Hope your week is a bit more relaxed.

  2. Bridget says:

    Nice to have you back! I have check a couple of time and kept seeing that silly house under construction. 🙂
    The flowers are fantastic and that mom – Painter is an inspiration! wow.
    Pet Peeve — I agree — love that your player is close so if i want music I can play it.
    Have a beautiful weekend.

  3. Denise says:

    Your pictures are beautiful……love the flowers.  I like the music! When I don’t want to hear it though I just turn off the sound on my computer.  I wish everyone would click the little button in their profile section that says yes to their email.  So when they leave you a comment and you want to email them a little note you can!  If that button isn’t clicked you can’t send them an email.  Have a wonderful day! Denise@cottagesisters

  4. Welcome back! Love this photo af the woman with the baby doing what she loves with who she loves.

  5. Sue says:

    Claudia, I love your flower photos.  You always  capture such beauty!  And I love your music- some of your selections are  on my own playlist.  As for blogging pet peeves- mine may sound silly, but if I ask someone a question, I would hope  to be answered via e-mail. Not within the comments section itself. Who goes back to look for answers there? Not me! LOL Hope to post real soon. I went out thrifting today!  hugs, Sue

    Claudia, welcome back.  Amazing flower photos, and I love your choice of music.  I usually have my sound turned off, so normally I don’t hear the music. I turned it on for this.  🙂  Pet peeve – don’t really have one, but I do wish more visitors would leave comments to let you know they stopped by.  I read all the comments left on a post and greatly appreciate them.

  7. Claudia!!!  Welcome back!!!  So good to see you back to blogging again!!!  I just love your beautiful photos and thoughts!!  You always make my day, girlfriend!!  You sure know how to bring Spring to life in pictures!!!  OK…a personal petpeeve of mine would have to be visiting a blog and not leaving a comment…I try to answer all of my comments/questions and be able to thank them for stopping by…they always brighten my day when they visit.  You are always great about doing that!  Looking forward to seeing all of your changes…looks great so far!!

  8. Oops!!!  Forgot to tell you that I changed my blog name to “Snapshots from my heart & home!”  Your photography has inspired me to try my hand at it again!

  9. Peggy Recker says:

    You have a beautiful blog!  Thanks for stopping by mine and posting!

  10. ldh says:

    Looking beautiful, Claudia!  Nice stopping by to visit with you!
    Kindly, ldh

  11. Beautiful flowers Claudia. 
    Music?  what music?  I never have the computer speakers on and never realized many blogs have music playing.

  12. Natasha says:

    I love your beautiful blog, Claudia, but for some reason I can never hear the music on any American blogs…they keep saying copyright restrictions or something. I will google this piece, though, as I would love to hear it.

    Thank you so much for visiting me and for your sweet comment. I had a wonderful time participating in my very first Pink Saturday and can’t wait to post more pinks next week! I can’t wait to see what pinks you will be posting! I will try to come back for your lovely meme too-it sounds fabulous.
    Best wishes,

  13. Hi, So pleased to meet you! Very beautiful flowers and photos.  hmm, Pet Peeves here in Blogland??? Well, I would have to say going to someones blog and it taking forever to load, all the glitches here in Blogland with our blogs and sometimes not being able to post, and not being able to find where to leave  your comments. I hope that you have a lovely new week!

  14. Millie says:

    Wow! Those vivid spring colors are lovely….and what a great shot of the painting Mom!

  15. Riet says:

    What beautiful pictures Clauudia. good to see you back. Have a great day

  16. Eileen says:

    Claudia, I love your tulips. The colors are so pretty. Beautiful photos. have a great week!

  17. Scribbler says:

    Thank you for visiting my blog.  I guess my pet peeve would be the way some of these comment boxes do not cooperate!
    Your photos are beautiful.

  18. Becky says:

    Wonderful photos…welcome back!!!

  19. Valerie says:

    A beautiful mosiac of colour.  Thanks for sharing. Valerie

  20. Claudia!!!  I have some exciting news!!!  Holly from Homebody has chosen to feature “Snapshots from my Heart and Home” on her blog today!!!  I feel so humbled and so blessed and tickled pink!!!  Would love for you to stop by and join us in all of our excitement!!!

  21. Beautiful mosaic and stunning colorful flowers!  I love what you’ve done with your blog.  As for music, I seldom have the volume turned on as I visit blogs these days so I never really know what’s playing anywhere 😉
    Welcome back!
    Hugs and blessings,

  22. Hi Claudia

    I like your new blog look!  Beautiful flowers in your mosaic –happy Pink Saturday and Mosaic Monday!  I love the last photo of the woman painting while holding her baby..that  is multitasking!

    I love soft blog music but I took my blog music off when I read many bloggers complaining that they don’t like music.  I might insert the playlist in  a post here and there, so my visitors can have the option to listen if they wish.

    Happy week!  ♥ Pat

  23. Claudie says:

    WOW I’ve been here so long I’m on the second song… one of my favourites…”time to say”. LOVE IT. You know me and music girlfriend, I always listen lol.
    So nice to see you again. How on earth did I miss this on May 1st? Oh I know, I was celebrating our 22nd Anniversary lol I knew I was busy doing something, or you know I would have been here faster.
    Oh oh something happened to that song… what happened? Now I’m hearing “baby I’m a…” Ok pet peeve here goes NO MUSIC ahha got ya’
    It’s late Claudia, I’m tired I guess. Coming by to say LOVE your new look, love your tulips and LOVE YOU : )
    Love Me

    goregeous tulips – gorgeous! I have only one true turn off with blogging, every now and then I come across one with a donations button.  Not for a cause, but to the blogger.  I do not get that. at all.

  25. mary says:

    So nice to see you, and what a gorgeous mosaic!  Thanks so much for sharing your lovely images at MM. 🙂

  26. Gorgeous, amazing pictures!  Beautiful.
    Pet peeves?  Hmm… not so many, but I get peeved at myself when I don’t have enough time to visit and comment on everyone’s posts … that’s about it.
    Thanks for those fabulous shots of the flowers.  Wow. — Cass

  27. Oh … I just read that people like that your music player is close by the beginning of the post; that is considerate.  However — to “comment” on your blog, a reader must scroll back up to the beginning of the post . . . not as convenient!  There doesn’t seem to be a working “comment” link at the end, the logical place for it to be.
    Does that count as a peeve?  😛

  28. Claudia,
    Just stopped by to let you know that I am having my first Linky Party!  It is in honor of the National Day of Prayer tomorrow.  Would love for you to stop by and check it out!!!  Thanks!!!  Love ya, sweetie!!!  Thanks so much for sharing the beauty of your music choices…my hubby loves listening to them when I visit your site!  🙂
