A Bit of Spring in January

I did a post sometime back about my favorite place to sit and write in my house.  The photos here were taken in that room. The photo above is a recent picture of one of the Coleus starts that I took from my plants in the yard just before the weather got too cold for them. 

I’ve mentioned before that this room is a favorite of mine because of the beautiful light that it gets.  Apparently, my plants agree with me!  

You would think that it’s Spring instead of the middle of winter, in January, from the way my plants are acting.  

These starts are in water right now, but will be planted into pots with soil and transferred back out to my yard in the spring.  

When my plants are happy, it makes me very happy.  What a gift these beauties have given me!

Spring’s Celebration

*Spring is my favorite time of year.  So in honor of the first day of spring… 

The first blush of spring.  When the flowers begin their peek out of the soil seeking the sun.  A time of New Beginnings.   A time of Rebirth and Fresh Starts.

What a joy to behold!

The world shucks off its grey shroud of winter and dons a bright floral frock for all to see.  The trees rejoice as they come back from the death-grip of winter.  They show off their gentle blossoms that rain down in the gentle spring breezes.  Glorious fragrances fill the air.

Mother nature is a joyful noise as the newborn explore and scurry, worrying their mothers as they do so.

The rivers and streams, their waters set loose from winter’s icy grip are now running with abandon.  They dance and play as they tumble over rocks and laugh their way down water falls.

The entire Earth is in celebration as it reawakens from it’s winter’s sleep.

Spring’s Celebration!

Happy Spring, All!  I know this is a repeat. I hope you don’t mind. It’s a favorite. Enjoy!  ❤

Sunshine and Spring Cleaning

I know I’ve been quiet lately.  But rest assured, all is well.  I took a couple of days off and did some spring cleaning, yard work and other chores that I have been putting off around the house. The reappearance of the sun helps to boost one’s mood. The coming forecast is calling for days and days of more rain. I know I should have invested in those ark building classes when I had the chance! 🙂

Longing For Spring



She arches

Slowly exposing
delicate casing 

Sun warms
frigid bark

Tendrils stretch
seeking fevered
sky

Winter’s chill
shunned

Longing for Spring
