If we were having coffee…

If we were having coffee... I'd greet you with a great big hug and thank you for joining me on this fine September morning! I'm in awe that it's been since February (yes, February!) that we've taken the time to sit together for a while and catch up! But we'd chuckle it off and decide on a beverage before curling…
The Changing Seasons – August 2017

The Changing Seasons – August 2017

Oh how I've missed participating in Cardinal's monthly Changing Seasons link ups! Not just because it allows me to reflect on the month that has just passed, but also because it allows me to see how other are experiencing the passing of time in their corners of the world!

The Hummingbird

Oh, give us pleasure in the flowers to-day; And give us not to think so far away As the uncertain harvest; keep us here All simply in the springing of the year. Oh, give us pleasure in the orchard white, Like nothing else by day, like ghosts by night; And make us happy in the happy bees, The swarm dilating…
In the Garden – Mid July

In the Garden – Mid July

The busier I'd get, the more responsibilities I'd have, the faster moments would slip through my fingers. I didn't believe it, though. Nor did I need to because, at the time,…
