~Tip-Toeing Through the Tulips~

Another week flying by.

 A few moments captured from Monday to Friday.

The tulips- my beacons of cheer - are nearly done with their spring time visit.

Lots of rain mixed with sun.

Lots of peering from the rain-splattered windows eager for dry spells.

Some brightness in the dark hours of the days.

Some painting to spread that brightness to others.

Some remembering to see the gifts.

Always Laundry.
Some loads more time-consuming than others.

Some Inspiration:
More projects. More dreams.

Some Spring Cleaning:
how wonderful is it to not smell the fridge before even opening it?

Some time spent with family, good food and good wine.

What moments did you capture this week?

Happy Weekend!

"We must have faith during the period of our grief. We think that our afflictions will be greater than we can bear, but we do not know the strength of our own hearts, nor the power of God. He knows all. He knows every folding of the heart and also the extent of the sorrow that he inflicts. What we think will overwhelm us entirely only subdues and conquers our pride. Our renewed spirit rises from its subjugation with a celestial strength and consolation."
-Francois Fenelon

  2. All those flowers are making me swoon! We are JUST have the first leaves finally open on the tops of the trees and a few daffs ALMOST opening. Things take time, I suppose.

  3. The watercolor painting of your garden was beautiful! Did you paint it? A God-given gift.

    Please send some of your rain to our dry New England, and we'll gladly share our dry weather with you!

    Happy Saturday!
