The Growing Season

The new spring grass is growing at a phenomenal rate, I suspect it has something to do with all of the rain that fell throughout the months of February and early March.
 "April showers, Bring May flowers"
Except a little early....

Heavenly-Scent

I've been enjoying a new candle lately, intoxicatingly delicious, especially on these early March days, when the sun shines hot and the winds blow cold....

Color Comes To Town

I know that spring is upon us, when the Redbud trees start giving out their beautiful pink buds.
The redbud is a tree that is valued far more than its small size might suggest. This lovely harbinger of spring has been called “a breath of fresh air after a long winter” and no less than “one of our most beautiful native trees” writes tree expert Michael Dirr, of The Arbor Day Foundation.


It is hard to express adequately the miracle of a tree that had branches so bare all through winter suddenly go from stark brown to magenta.
But there she is again, emerging from her own winter of storms, freeze, winds, and drought, still standing, still surviving, still blooming, still giving.

Growing

Friday's are very special days for us.
On those days we are fortunate to be the caretakers of our sweet little great-granddaughter Ensley Kate.
She reached a milestone last week of turning six months old, she has two bottom teeth, and more coming in.
This beautiful little bundle of joy brings so much pleasure to our lives, we couldn't be more blessed.

Batten Down The Hatches

The wind is blowing a gale.
Birds are literally flying sideways.
Each time I look out of the window, the windmill is turning a hundred miles an hour, if only I knew how to convert that energy into electricity, my utilities would be free for a month !
It's a balmy 77 degrees today, in early March, we are headed for a night of thunderstorms, and mayhem.
March madness no less.

On Hold

My plans were to start a little outdoor spring cleaning this weekend, but you know what they say about the best-laid plans of mice and men.........
The weather has turned wet and cold, with whispers of snow in the forecast,  so most of the cleaning will take place on the inside, accompanied by a cozy fire, and pots of tea galore.
Hoping your weekend is warm and cozy.
