Thoughts of Spring


For a few precious moments, spring was in the air the other day.

Temps were almost warm and the sun shone down in brilliant tones of gold.

One could just imagine bird songs and the tingle of wind chimes.


But the glory days, so reminiscent of spring, were short-lived.

Today, it felt cold again.  The sun shone but it gave out no warmth.

This month, during a trip to Yankee Candle Village in South Deerfield, Massachusetts, a pretty display was spotted.

It was a bicycle with a big bunch of flowers covering the handlebars.

When the windchill makes everything freeze, thinking about the pretty flowers on the bike will help to keep upcoming spring in mind.

WHAT IS ONE THING THAT REMINDS YOU OF SPRING?

The Month of Hearts

The month of hearts is almost over.

It's fun to decorate with hearts.

There are a few hanging from the window panes on the back door in the kitchen.

More are in a little heart-shaped dish, of course, on the front hall table.

Along the top of the knick knack rack in the kitchen, four lovely and festive hearts have brought a touch of color all month long.


Ahhhhhh, it's almost time to put the hearts away. 

On the other hand, maybe they should stay out all year!

One can never have enough hearts, right?

DO YOU REMEMBER THE SONG, "YOU'VE GOT TO HAVE HEART?"(Thanks to YouTube for this rendition.....https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ry8CpIg2fvU)

Tulips!


A very dear friend, Donna,  brightened not just a day but the whole month by bringing beautiful pink tulips as a gift.


Placed in a white milk glass vase, they have brought so much beauty and joy to our home.



Tulips are such beautiful flowers and are so reminiscent of spring-to-come.




There is a song about tulips that we used to sing, as kids.


It might have been a Girls Scouts song. 



These are the words to it:

Here, look in my garden bed —
Something beautiful is growing!
Bright shaped like a cup of red
Tulips open to the sun!

Last night it was small and green,
flame-like now it is a-growing,
This one is the first I’ve seen,
Now sweet weather has begun!


Isn't it funny how a song or a poem from our days when we were kids can still come to mind and bring us back to a long, long, time ago?


WHAT IS ONE SONG FROM YOUR CHILDHOOD THAT STAYS WITH YOU EVEN TODAY?
