March Tea...

Spring is in the air...
 
 
it just feel good to feel light...

 
to gather fresh flowers from the garden...
 

 
the amazing weather we have been enjoying,
has kept me very busy in the garden...
 
taking care of tasks
that are often neglected in our usual
colder / wetter Springs...


I added a flat of these
Mount Hood Daffodils to the garden...
 
they are divine!



a treat calls for something sweet...
 
I made a small batch
of Martha Stewart's Lime Meltaway Cookies,
but,  substituted Lemon...
 
also divine...
 



a couple months ago,
I picked up a stack of these
Shabby Chic napkins...
 
this green is one of my favorite patterns,
it's so Springy!
 
I have been holding on to them waiting
for the right moment....
 





 
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.

Thanks for joining me today...

Branching Out...

We had some tree work
 done...
 
the big Thundercloud Plums
needed tidying up...
 
the tree trimmers came
just as the blooms were starting to pop...
 
a pink storm...
 
 
so you know what they say
 
If life gives you Lemons
make Lemonade...

 
I gathered up bundles
and filled my big
French Bucket up...
 
and
enjoyed the show...
 


 
they just cheer up
my Winter weary heart...
 

 
I hope your week is off to
 a cheery start too...
 
Thanks for stopping by...

Into the Garden Some Rain Must Fall...

We enjoyed so many
beautiful sunny days...
 
 
But,  then some rain must fall...
 
the garden likes it
and so do I...
 
cozy days to relax...
 



 
moderation,
would be nice...
 
too much rain
and the blooms topple over...
 




quiet time on the bench
between downpours...
 


 
the rain keeps the heavenly scent
of the Winter Daphne
strong,  heady and close to the ground...
 
intoxicating...
 

 
"A life is like a garden.
Perfect moments can be had,
but not preserved,
except in memory"
 
wise word from Leonard Nimoy's final Tweet
Rest In Peace
 
 
Happy Weekend to You...
