Wow! Talk about a fast change in the weather.
Two days ago I set up a space in the basement to work where it’s cool, because it was in the high 80’s. And today, I don’t think we got past 45 degrees and there are winds gusting up to 30 mph. Oh, and there’s a freeze alert tonight too!! I know, it’s May and anything goes, but I am so ready for just plain spring. Summer can take her time. I just want to relish in a bit of spring. I want to enjoy the Rhododendrons, the Iris, and the Cornus Kousa Dogwoods for more than a day. How about you?
Having said all that. My level of discomfort is nothing compared to all those in Oklahoma and Texas who were hit hard by the tornadoes. They continue to need our constant prayer. And remember…our prayers make things happen!
I love this quote from Lady Bird Johnson….
“Where flowers bloom so does hope.”
Here’s an Irish from my garden….the first of the perennial flowers to bloom.
And yes…my heart is filled with hope. May yours be too.

It was another Extraordinary Week on the blog!
We began another week with Joy Day! and a post about some things I’m learning the hard way. Sunday night I was back as I am blessed for 6 weeks to join the team of gals who host Monday Funday….a fabulous link party…overflowing with inspiration. Don’t miss it this week…the fun starts at 7 PM EST. It’s planting time for many of us and I shared a thorough tutorial for planting a successful window box garden. Container gardening is a passion of mine and I love sharing tips. I wanted to participate in two link parties this week. Marty from a Stroll Through Life was hosting a “Cloche Party” and Cuisine Kathleen was hosting a “Memorial Day Tablescaping Party.” There isn’t enough time to do two posts…especially as I had forgotten until the last minute….so I did a “two-for” with my Patriotic tablescaping ideas. And finally I wrapped things up with a terrific tip I found on Pinterest. This was one little project that made my heart very happy. I guess, the week wasn’t just extraordinary….it was busy too!!
Humbled and blessed.
