A Sentiment

God knew what He was doing when He sent a gentle breeze and brought a lovely butterfly to set my heart at ease. The happiness of your friendship and the gentleness of your words have touched my life in special ways and now I feel assured. Thank you for your loyalty and for reading everyday. I only hope you find things to make a happy day.

Spring Showers

Spring...author unknown

When the rain is splashing down..
On the fields and in the town.
Singing winds begin to blow..
And the flowers start to grow.
How glad I am when I have seen..
Those tender leaves of gentle green.
They warm my heart and make it sing..
For now I know at last it’s spring.
Spring makes the world a happy place..
You see a smile on every face.
Flowers come out and birds arrive..
Oh, isn’t it grand to be alive.

We woke to the sound of thunder. Joe heard it first and asked if I had heard it. Then came a rolling louder thunder and I heard it too. I raised the blinds and lay there watching the storm coming. The trees were swaying and Blue (the blue spruce) was moving. Little birds were hanging on. They hadn't felt rain for a while and were anticipating nice juicy bugs on the surface of the soil. Those little yellow, green, shoots will really start popping up all over the garden. The buds on trees will open soon. Spring is so welcome this year. I was thinking...if we hadn't had such a harsh winter, would we be looking forward to spring so much? I love the seasons...I look forward to all of them. Have a great day. Happy spring!

It is getting more like spring every day and I love it. We had some rain and thunder here, too, on Saturday. Some of the herbs I planted are coming up, too. I need to get some seeds in pots. Guess I will do that tomorrow if weather permits. Have a good week.

We're still recovering from the hailstorm of yesterday.

But I'm looking forward to spring!!
