I don't have anything new or exciting to blog about today, but since you stopped by, I thought I would share a part of my Spring ritual with you. Now, how exciting is that?:) I look forward to taking out my glass pedestal bowl, filling it with water, floating my candles and fresh flowers (whatever is growing outside my back door at the time). Tonight I floated some pansies and violas. Their little faces seem to smile up at me every time I sit at my kitchen table.
One of the quirks of my personality is that I like to change my table centerpiece. It makes me feel like I made a decorating change even though it is a minor change. Surprisingly, the bags of little white floating candles from Michaels, burn for a while. I keep a bag of them on hand throughout the Spring and Summer.
This evening I was outside doing some weeding. I was again reminded of how much I like my white flowering tree at the corner of our house. I am amazed at it's beauty, when only a few months ago, it was only brown barren branches.
Years ago, my husband bought me this cute bunny in a gift shop, during our visit down south. She takes her place on the ledge of our kitchen, each Easter, overseeing all the activities of our family.
Driving home this evening on one of my regular routes, I was impressed at how quickly the grass had turned to it's vibrant green color, and the farmers had already been plowing the fields.
So despite the fact that my husband and I both have become the recipients of nasty colds, I find the above pictures reason to smile through it all. I am headed to the kitchen for a hot cup of tea. Maybe it will help.
