Hello and happy spring! My daffodils are in full bloom here in Missouri, and I am eagerly awaiting the arrival of 200 Virginia bluebells that I planted last fall. (Though I see no signs of them yet, so I must confess that I'm getting a bit anxious about their whereabouts!)
Spring has also clearly sprung here on Cookie Connection, as this week's hot list* attests. We've got eggs and Easter hens, spring paint colors, plenty of mimosa, and much more, including a special wish for peace in Ukraine.
Take a look, and please say congrats to this week's featured artists as you peruse their lovely work!

Wonderful work, everyone! I'll see you next week. Hopefully, my bluebells will be emerging by then (fingers crossed)!
So that no one has an unfair advantage in making it onto a hot list, the algorithm is secret even to site administrators. Only our platform developers know the code, which has been exhaustively tested by those developers and Cookie Connection staff.
