For over a week, we have had the most beautiful weather imaginable, here in northern Indiana!! As my husband says, "It's like summer, without all the humidity and flying insects!" The hubs and I have been taking long walks almost every day, enjoying the sweet moments together and taking in God's beauty! It's almost too good to be true! (In a side note: the hubs also wonders whether all this summer-like weather will cause any weird weather in the near future - more tornadoes, heat wave, etc,) I don't like to think about that right now, though. I'm enjoying today SO much!!
It's been especially difficult for me to not run outside and dig in the dirt!! It's pretty early to be planting anything here in the Midwest. Usually they say it's not "safe" from frost until the first of May. On top of that, we may be moving to a new house soon and I'm thinking it would be wiser to wait and plant new flowers on the new property, rather than waste my time on planting anything more on our current land. This is very torturous, though. And anyone who is an avid Gardner, would agree, that it's like putting candy in front of a child and saying he can't have any right now!
So, today, I'm doing what I can and sharing some bought flowers(a rare thing for me to do) with some of my spring catalogs (which I sit and drool over). I also added to my little vignette an heirloom lamp, which belonged to my grandmother and my sweet little birds, that I recently purchased. I hope you enjoy the pictures!
I recently bought this "journal" for it's beautiful cover!!
I'm not sure if I will use it to keep my daily journals in or use as a "garden journal."
I've never had one, but I have often thought about making one.
Isn't the intricate detail just amazing!?!
I just love all of the color and beauty of a flower!
I've owned this dry-sink for several years. It's not an antique, but I love the old-fashioned look.
And may you have a lovely First Day of Spring!!
"Life is Good!" with a view of God's nature and some tea!!! Me in my favorite "T(ea)-shirt" below.
