 Welcome friends!

A wonderful warm welcome back to blogging indeed!
I've missed you all have lots to catch up on
but for now

 Time for some beach therapy!
Destination: Naples Florida
A dear friend vacationed in Barbados a few weeks
ago and sent this image. Don't you love the
turquoise water!!

So It Begins

"We have been friends together
In sunshine and in shade"
::
I have sat at my computer numerous times to write a post but I can
never find the words. Much has happened in the year that I have
been absent from blogging. 
...and so it begins.
::
"But if the while I think on thee,
dear friends,
All losses are restored and sorrows end. "

Paradise In Plain Sight

 A recently published book
 written by Zen Priest Karen Maezen Miller
Isn't really about gardening, the garden she speaks of is our life.
"Paradise In Plain Sight"
A quick read that teaches us to prepare our minds and body for
tranquil contemplation. To uncover what is hidden within us
through an inward journey while observing elements of the garden.

"I realized that everything I want or need..
like the living truth of life, love, beauty, purpose and peace,,
is taught to me right here, no further away
than the ground beneath my feet"
Karen Maezen Miller 
::
Thank You Karen
 for your wisdom as I now have a renewed clarity
and connection to my garden and Nature!

Spring Yellow

 After a long winter indoors sweet Paisley finds it simply irresistible
 to feel the earth beneath her paws!
( I have my eyes on her as she is an indoor kitty)

 The weather still a bit on the chilly side this month of May
but I can't help but smile seeing their bright sunny color!
Golden Finch

  A feeling of JOY wakes up my senses as I observe
flocks of  Baltimore Orioles  sip at the hummer feeders!
They have bullied out the hummingbirds so I'll have to
 purchase a few more!
(I have orange Oriole feeders but they prefer the red ones ??)
Hanging pots need filling so this weekend  I'll get out into the garden
and plant, set up cozy corners and inviting seating areas
 in time for summertime!
In Canada we celebrate Victoria Day & will enjoy our fist long weekend!
Living in a Cottage community there will be heavy traffic with
 cottagers opening up their summertime homes!
Have a great weekend in your gardens!

Happy Day in May

Happy Mother's Day!
Dear friends particularly mothers who have stopped by today.
I wish you a wonderful Mother's Day!
To Mothers with children serving in the military 
a special hug and comfort to you. 
My day began with a riot of color in the garden with various species of
 migrating birds returning to the garden!
For the Baltimore Orioles I placed a welcome home treat of 
cut up oranges everywhere!
(in photo this one looks yellow however many more a darker orange color!!)
I opened mailed cards from my son and grandchildren in Arizona!
Today we travel 3 hrs. to the city to spend the day with my 
daughter and her family!
Thank You dearest husband for my card and new iPad Air!!
So much LOVE
Oh what a Happy day this Mother's Day in May!
love and light

Signs of Spring!

 I see Spring's fresh colors!
 
Poking up through autumn's fallen leaves
I see the first new growth!
 

 I see peace
 
Walk gently..
I grow close to the ground
I am with Nature's  Spirit
