Everywhere I go, there are little green stems with swollen heads. Daffodils waiting to soak in the sunshine and warmer temperatures. Wistfully wanting to slip out of their green cloaks and turn their little cheerful faces to the sun. I feel just like them. Basking in the sun sounds absolutely wonderful today. No doubt in a few short months we all will be seeking a reprieve from the sun and its heat. Perspective.
As I was dreaming of flowers and warm weather, I ‘flipped’ through my photos and came across this one I took at Letchworth State Park some time ago. This quote seemed to marry perfectly with the sunny flowers on the gray day by the waterfall.
Flower are those little colorful beacons of the sun
from which we get sunshine when dark,
somber skies blanket our thoughts.

Catch up on all that’s Extraordinary…
this week at An Extraordinary Day:
- He is Risen :: Joy Day!
- Sunroom Metamorphosis :: Spring Decor
- Create Your Own Spring-Flowering Branches :: A Book Page Flower Tutorial
It’s been an another Extraordinary week on the blog.
Our extraordinary week began with celebrating Christ’s resurrection on Easter Sunday! On Saturday I hinted that I just might make a few changes to my sun room…and I made good with it calling it a metamorphosis. (I even learned how to spell the word! Haha!) The next day I came back with a tutorial for the flowering branches. What can’t you make with book pages? I have a few more ideas under my thinking cap…you just wait and see! This post has been quite popular in blogland. I am humbled and blessed.
So how was my personal week? We got up really early and attended our little town’s outdoor Easter Sunrise service. It was cold! But…it didn’t rain until about and hour later. The weather seems to be the topic of every conversation and how could we not notice the snow and cold? I almost did the happy dance when the sun came out late in the week. And today it warmed up enough to open the windows of my house. Oh my! Nothing like a clean house that smells springy fresh. And now, I am awaiting friends driving in from Virginia for an overnight stop on their way to Michigan. It’s been several years since we’ve gotten together. I’m more than slightly excited. Can you see my big grin!
I can’t tell you how much I appreciate you. Truly, I am blessed when you stop by, leave your thoughtful remarks, and even share and pin the posts you like. Thank you. Hugs to each of you who make this feel like a chat and not me just tapping words into space.
