Summer, how lovely these days are! Early morning cool, gentle breeze and the birds singing. I had the opportunity to spend some time in the garden - what a blessing it is to have a garden! I also had the opportunity to do some necessary home care. Some times it seems that I have laundry for days - then I think - I have the blessing of caring for … [Read more...]

Our brief period of spring has come to an end...the beginnings of summer with it's heavy heat is upon us. I love the early mornings. I sit in my dining room watch as the day lightens and the birds sing their song. The heavy fragrance of Honeysuckle and Magnolia cloaks the air with its sweet perfume. Another day in the south has begun. We've not had … [Read more...]

I have so delighted in the past few days and weeks. I mentioned to Dearest, 'we are actually having a spring!'. If you live in the South, you know how hot and humid it can be. You also know that shortly after our mild winter passes, summer temps come early. This year, we are enjoying beautiful, mild-temperate days. I am glorying in them! I hope … [Read more...]

At home - we've had much rain - I have more weeds than … [Read more...]

tybee island sunrise-1

Dearest and I had the opportunity to go away for a few days last week to Tybee Island, Georgia. Our daughter and her husband gifted us with a two night stay at the Tybee Island Inn. We needed this so much. I've not shared, but Dearest hasn't been well for nearly three months now. We're not sure what's wrong - he's seeing Doctors and taking tests. … [Read more...]

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...]

Spring is beautiful this year in our little town. We have occasion when spring flowering trees and bushes bud, but then are affected by a frost thereby destroying beautiful blooms. Not so this year! 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...]
