Spring is here!

These cranes are nesting in the tree tops of thorn trees. It’s no easy task to reach the chicks and avoid the thorns! But what a safe place to raise them!

A little friend of mine…

I was one of those little girls that ‘loved’ my dolls and cared for them with great care. I never went to bed without tucking them all safely in their beds first!

Butch was a very special doll for those days. For one thing he was a boy doll…not many of those around then. And his eyes were a sparkling brown (not the usual blue) and they opened and closed!  He came with a little blue  outfit but over the years I ‘hugged’ that right into the rag bag. LOL. Mom made the little outfit he’s wearing in the picture…she made so many clothes for them all.

I would give a lot to experience just one more tea party with us all sitting around a tiny table…mom with her knees up to her chin…drinking tea with her pinkie finger stuck out! And chattering to us ‘all’  about things of great importance. What a blessing she was to me.

A pretty place to play…

When we want a few new plants and just want to relax we go to this pretty nursery in Fallbrook and spend an hour or two…

Artist…Joyce Thomas

Joyce Thomas is an amazing watercolorist…and an amazing friend. There are people in this world whose kindness and generosity and love just shine out in their artwork and Joyce is one of those. I was able to purchase this little gem of her work…it says love to me and I will always treasure it…as I treasure the sweet lady that painted it!

Fun in another time…

We had such fun playing at the Ren Faire yesterday….the color and sounds…a joy for the eyes and a feast for the mind.

An excellent book!

Rick and I listen to audio books as we travel in the car. This is one of the best we’ve listened to in a long time. Wait for the zinger of an ending…we’re still talking about it!

Jasamine and Orange Blossoms in bloom

I wish I could gather you all up and let you join me in the back patio to drink in the way it smells. You could get drunk on this aroma!
