Finding Peace in My Back-Yard…

As the days become warmer… almost hot the last two…

I walk my yard looking for small signs of summer

Spring is doing it’s “thing”…  

Sprouts begin to show…

Buds begin to grow…

and it makes you feel…

“All is right with the world!”…

That our God is keeping His World in order…

When we went to church with friends yesterday…

a saying struck me…

God was…

God is…

God will be…

and it gave me Peace…

My sister brought me a Palm from her church…

and I added it to my Door Decoration…

a finishing addition!…

As I walked I found these delicate eggs from a bird on the ground… I thought Robin…

but, maybe not dark enough… although a pretty pale blue…

Maybe fell when the wind blew hard

or maybe a thief stole them

like a Jay…

I hear they do this…

but, …

they were cracked open and empty…

Jill was taking in the sunshine coming through the back door…

sound asleep… and as I petted her she was so warm…

 

probably feeling good to her body like us… as she is ageing… going on 17 years…

 

Pale and bright purple flowers and a lot of yellow…

 

 

 

Wildflowers I pick since my planted flowers are just greening now…

making a sweet bouquet that only lasts about 2 days…

but, then I can pick fresh ones while I wander…

 

The red birdhouse hasn’t shown signs of life…

 

Only squirrels running around it as they chase each other in their games of hide and go seek…

We planted two new shrubs that are greening nicely…

a Dwarf Apricot Tree that my son ordered…

and onion sets from a neighbor…

Although I have Columbine growing in one of my BIG pots…

the other was empty and seemed to be a great spot for the onions…

Container gardening will be all I do…

As I straightened up the house…

a never-ending keeping of a home…

I light candles when finished…

I love the faint smell of vanilla or other scents as I enjoy my home…

A place where I find Peace also!
