The First Weekend of Spring...

 I am just popping by
to wish you a wonderful first weekend of Spring!
 
suddenly after so many lazy Winters days
there is so much to do...
 
Spring Cleaning,
 
Garden Clean up,
and the part of garden clean up
where you just stop and get lost admiring the tiny blooms
 and the way the greens are suddenly greener,
 
I get lost watching the baby squirrels outside my kitchen window,
 
then there is that antsy feeling
 of just wanting to go out and socialize...
 
the anticipation of road trips...
 
its all bliss,
my mind and heart are full...
 
I hope yours are too...

“It was one of those March days
 when the sun shines hot
and the wind blows cold:
 when it is summer in the light,
 and winter in the shade.”     
 
 
 
Happy Weekend!

The Sea of my Childhood...

I am so lucky
to have my brother in town!
 
last weekend we took a trip to
Oak Harbor, Washington...
 
a small town on Whidbey Island
were we spent a few years of our childhood...
 
 



before
I moved to Washington State
I lived in Los Angeles,  California...
 
the beaches there so different
than the almost still waters of the Puget Sound...
 
each beautiful...
 
the beach is my happy place...
it moves me,
it humbles me,
it  grounds me.
 





the snow capped
Olympic Mountain Range in the background...
 






 
We are tied to the ocean.
And when we go back to the sea,
whether it is to sail or to watch -
 we are going back from whence we came.

It was an amazing weekend...

 
Thanks for stopping by,

Vernal Equinox...

Take the Winds of March with Beauty...
 

 
right on cue
Spring hath Sprung...
 
 
its hard to believe these sweet
tender blooms are out there in the cold wet garden..
 
they give me cause to put on a coat
and awaken my soul...
 

 
 
this beautiful calendar
which celebrates Edith Holden...
 
was given to me years ago
by my dear blogging friend Jacqueline
 
my kindred spirit
 

 



 
the beautiful drawing are pure delight...
 
and I feel connected
to Edith in some small way,
to see
 that I enjoy the same garden blooms as she did...
right on schedule... 
 




Daffodils that come before the swallow dares
and take the winds of March with beauty.

Happy Spring to You!!
