The pansies were given to me by a special friend last Fall. They lasted all winter.
When the little girls visit or anyone - Callie is waiting for attention.
In town this morning and saw a small tree in full bloom. Next trip in a few days I will take an image.
A quick walk through Lowe's and nothing much out but I could not resist buying something
Bought a small burning bush with the thought it will add a little color here in the woods. Also
bought a small blue spruce to add among the trees.
An unusually warm day today with it reaching into the high 70's. Rain suppose to arrive tonight
but many times what they say is going to happen never happens.
Have some lettuce seeds to plant in the next few days.
As I walk the paths in the woods I keep looking for signs of Spring coming through the carpet of leaves.
Not much emerging as of yet
I read the following passage from a poem and it brought back memories of long ago.
Memories of my youngest and I who were in church every time the doors opened.
everything has changed, the local people, the local church and One Woman.
It is a good change....
and one thing has not changed - the cross I have worn for years seldom comes off my neck
~~~I had such a longing for virtue, for company.
I wanted Christ to be as close as the cross I wear.
I wanted to read and serve, to touch the alter linen.
Instead I went back to the woods, where not a single tree
turned its face away~~~
In part from ~~Mary Oliver~~ from a poem in her book "Thirst"
