Even though it has not snowed here in Victoria, nor have we
had much bitter, freezing cold weather, I am getting tired of cold
and gray winter days. Days of dark clouds, strong winds and
bone chilling dampness. I can imagine y'all are getting tired
of winter too. So I decided we needed a few spring time
pretties to cheer us all up.
I am dreaming of spring. Every once in a while we get a teaser kind of a day
when the sun shines and the winds die down and time spent in the garden is
a real treasure. I relish those moments and long for more.
I buy fresh flowers to keep the inside of the house alive.
I carefully change the water and remove any dying ones to
keep the bouquet going as long as possible.
Still, it's not the same as digging in the dirt. So satisfying.
Feeling at one with nature. Hearing the birds, watching the
lizards and squirrels. Seeing Bentley romp around in
delight in his big back yard. Sheer heaven for me.
Seeing my dear boy so happy makes me happy too.
I can hardly wait to make another fairy garden this year.
Of course you already know how crazy I am about minis!
I will have to make another "Tinkerbell Cottage" because I left the old one
behind in Idaho. Fairies don't like to move you know.
Last year I had fun putting little dishes in between the pansies in the
window boxes. I will have to do this again.
In the meantime, I can look through magazines and create outdoor
garden plans in my mind.
I leave you with happy memories of spring days gone by
and dreams of the spring days to come.
Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley
