A Whimsical Evening Tea
Wild Violets, Clover and Rhyme
It was wonderful to be outdoors with some extra daylight hours. The temperature was just perfect, pleasant in the late afternoon. I was playing with our son’s dog – which we temporarily keep – and began to pick wild violets.
I love to see their sweet, happy faces peeping through my husband’s lawn – he doesn’t care for them so much.
As I was walking round the bottom edge of the lawn I noticed some glass sticking up from where rain had run off some soil. Usually I find broken pieces of shard, old metal pieces etc…this time I found a bottle in tact. This is the second one I’ve found in our yard. The house next door had been owned by a doctor who treated Civil War soldiers in and around the home. It is not uncommon to find evidence of this in our backyards.
I have some Martha Stewart dishes that have wild violets strewn throughout – I thought they would look sweet alongside my little violets. I noticed as I was taking the pictures that it was the perfect time to capture that whimsical time – the Blue Hour
Now, here are some quotes and rhymes from one of my favorite authors – Dr. Seuss – his birthday is in March and many celebrate by participating in Read across America
“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”
“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living.”
“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who’ll decide where to go…”
― Dr. Seuss, Oh, the Places You’ll Go!
“Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.”
“Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope.”
“Why fit in when you were born to stand out?”
“To the world you may be one person; but to one person you may be the world.”
“It is better to know how to learn than to know.”
