Friends & Flowers

May is such a pretty month....everything is turning lush green....the flowers are blooming, and the air smells of fresh mowed grass. We are all excited about being
back outside, planting our herbs ~ flowers, and veggies.
We washed off the front porch, and placed out our rockers so when we
have time, we can sit a spell and count our many Blessings.

Down by the "store" there is a daily show, one beam holds a dove nesting .... the other beam shows mama sparrow feeding three babies, and smack in the middle is a robins nest. Amazing the complete harmony that goes on right outside my door. They have now come to realize that I mean them no harm,so they pay absolutely no attention to me, till I pull out the camera and try to get a shot of the goings on.

My favorite flower the beautiful fragrant Lilac
is in full bloom here at the cabin, and was also
a beautiful sight down in Hereford, PA this past weekend.
Always a TreaT to shop at my favorite stores,
and visit with my favorite Friends !!
Came home as I always do, with wonderful goodies
and inspiration galore.
Hope there are people, and places that inspire and
fill you with Joy.
Sending Warm Spring Hugs from the Cabin

I love this time of year, too. Busy planting, enjoying the wonderful sights and sounds of spring. Love your lilacs. Mine haven't bloomed yet here in Mi.
Have a wonderful day.

Happy Beautiful Spring Day My Friend...


YIKES...diet time!! and it looks like I wasn't "leaning" in very good...LOL!! The smile is because I LOVE when you visit - you are the INSPIRATION that motivates the storekeeper to open those doors every morning - hoping that a visit from a true friend will happen that day...XO, Judy

Hi Connie - I love those lilacs! My Ms. Kim lilac bush is just starting to bloom...it blooms later than my other ones. I love how you can smell them as you walk by. Congratulations to you! I am so excited to hear about your new shop. I hope one day to come up your way and finally meet :)

Beautiful flowers, the lilacs are perfect! I have a bush, but it NEVER blooms! I wish it did because I love them in the house, the scent is lovely, so I settle for the faux scent in air freshners! Wishing you well,

Hi...I love the lilacs, too. It's a shame they only last a few days.
