A Return to Loveliness

ARTL april showers

I didn't expect the rain this morning. I looked at our forecast and saw that it was supposed to be sunny and 70 degrees. What I missed was that my phone had scrolled to this afternoon's temp. I love the beauty of rain - the softness and serenity. I hope you're having a wonderful day and that you have April showers to bring your May flowers. Here … [Read more...]

It's finally, officially spring. And spring has never been more beautiful in my corner of the world. Outside our back windows, I see my neighbor's Cherry trees in full bloom - they beautifully frame my neighbor's home. The daffodils are nearly already spent, but everything else is in or beginning to bloom. Yesterday it rained all day, but on the … [Read more...]

I drove through town the other day and thrilled to see the beautiful spring-blooming trees and bushes in bloom. I need to take more pictures! The early … [Read more...]

As I look out the window at the water bouncing from the raindrops at the bottom of the backyard, my thoughts go to the song, 'Raindrops on Roses'. These are a few of my favorite things...I do love the rain and what it does to my garden. Here, in the south, spring is bounding forth. I look forward to sharing with you soon, after the raindrops, the … [Read more...]
