BIRDS AND BLOOMS......

"See! The winter is past; the rains are over and gone.
Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing is come,
the cooing of the doves is heard in our land.
The fig tree forms its early fruit; the blossoming vines spread their fragrance."

Song of Songs 2:11-13

These are just a few spring pretties around my home, enjoy!

For blue of stream and blue of sky,
Father we thank thee.
For pleasant shade of branches high
Father, we thank thee
For fragrant air and cooling breeze,
For the beauty of the blooming trees,
Father in heaven, we thank thee.

For this new morning with its light,
Father, we thank thee.
For rest and shelter of the night,
Father we thank thee.
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything that goodness sends,
Father in heaven, we thank thee.

- "Lord of Creation" by Ralph Waldo Emerson


Have a blessed and restful Sunday!

Delightful photos and Dawn's right...the music is so perfectly peaceful and relaxing that I am considering a nap right here under your window...will you mind?

My mother was here a few days ago when I was reading your blog and she commented on how lovely the music was.

Thank you for visiting today. I don't get so many visitors on Sunday, which is as it ought to be.

Hope that you might have some relaxing and restful times today, too. Hugs...

Thank you, Miss Sandy, for your beautiful slide show and words from the heart. It has been a rough week and they encouraged my soul.

So you're off to see the good doctor...he of dour expression. I certainly hope that you are able to cheer him some. Lord knows that we all need cheering from time to time.

Thank you for visiting me today and looking at my little tea cozy. It's rather a fright, but then I was desperate. I know that you'll come up with something fun by the 12th and I'll be right here to see it.

Have an excellent spring day filled with blooms and sunshine, Hon!

I see that playing Dolly Day brought back floods of childhood memories for you too. Such nice vivid memories, and I see familiar faces amongst them, like the large walking doll. Your collection is wonderful, but what I love the best are all the stories of your sweet memories. Blessings, Karen
