Nearly two weeks in....

Nearly two weeks of "house arrest" here in our area.  Things were going fairly well but....  

We are out of garlic!!!

I was worried about the virus but what about the vampires?

Tea Stands For Tuesday 3/23/20

How is everyone this morning?  Are you keeping busy?  Is your community sheltering in place?  I hope everyone is well.

I've been knitting.  That seems to be keeping my hands occupied and my mind engaged.  This is a hat I'm working on.  The pattern is called Fog City - on Ravelry if you are interested.

It is time for me to visit Elizabeth's blog and try to catch up with everyone there.  Won't you join me?

Second on the Second - 3/2/20

Good morning friends.  I'm so glad Elizabeth gives us a chance to revisit previous posts on the second of every month.  I tried to pick something in the past as close as today's date as I could.  Please join us here to see what everyone has chosen for a second look.


Neighborhood Walk - 3/4/15

Out walking and looking for signs of spring.  I may be rushing the season although on some days recently our weather has felt decidedly spring like.

Here is a flowering vine.   The flowers are a brighter yellow in person.  I think it might be called a trumpet vine.  Very common in our area.

don't have a clue what this is called.  I like the way it grows.  Again, seen fairly often in our area, usually along the edge of the sidewalk as this one is.  Anyone familiar with it?

And last but not least - I spotted this.

cut the lovely
white calla
lilies - leave them
for everyone to
enjoy.  Thanks !!

Have a great day and don't pick any flowers from your neighbors yard!

Welcome March

trees are blossoming

Dear March - Come in 
by Emily Dickinson

Dear March - Come in - 
How glad I am -
I hoped for you before -
Put down your Hat - 
You must have walked -
How out of Breath you are - 
Dear March, how are you, and the Rest -
Did you leave Nature well - 
Oh March, Come right upstairs with me -
I have so much to tell -

I got your Letter, and the Birds - 
The Maples never knew that you were coming -
I declare - how Red their Faces grew -         
But March, forgive me - 
And all those Hills you left for me to Hue - 
There was no Purple suitable - 
You took it all with you -         
Who knocks? That April -
Lock the Door -
I will not be pursued -
He stayed away a Year to call 
When I am occupied -         
But trifles look so trivial 
As soon as you have come
That blame is just as dear as Praise 
And Praise as mere as Blame -
