The view from my kitchen sink is changing every day...our little raised bed is bestowing gentle surprises each morning. This new-to-me garden is slowly revealing its secrets...a sprinkling of snowdrops, a cluster of primroses, tall, proud daffodils and today: a hellebore! The previous owners weren't gardeners - that much is certain - but it was their first home together and I can see that they did plant Springtime packages of love into this earth.
However, another gray day greeted us this morning. A veil of ice lay glittering on my car's windscreen at dawn. Winter isn't over yet.
And I've got the blues.
a hat to keep my beloved's ears warm
legwarmers to make us think of Spring rainbows
wondering where the sky ends and the sea begins at this beach
well-shod creekside knitting
stitching up a little national pride
bonny smiles from my girl who never feels the cold
little gifts from a very experienced quilter
On second thought, there's nothin' wrong with a little dose of the blues. Spring, take all the time you need.
