1084. A hush is over everything…the world is waiting for the spring. ~Sara Teasdale

Springtime is the land awakening.
The March winds are the morning yawn.

Don’t flowers put on their
Prettiness each spring and
Go to it with
Everything they’ve got?
Who Would criticize the bed of
Yellow tulips or the blue Hyacinths?

So put a
Bracelet on your
Ankle with a
Bell on it and make a
Little music for
The earth beneath your foot, or

Wear a hat with hot-colored
Ribbons for the
Pleasure of the
Leaves and the clouds, or at least
A ring with a gleaming
Stone for your finger…
~Excerpted lines from a poem
by Mary Oliver

He makes winds His messengers… ~Excerpt from Psalm 104:4  ✝

  1. Loved Lewis Grizzard—good ol Georgia boy you know—Georgia bulldog who actually lived about 20 minutes from us—we still frequent his favorite BBQ joint—a life cut sadly short…which now makes me think of Designing Women when he use to be on the show as the brother to Julia and Suzanne Sugarbaker—and what better way to say Spring than with a great big “HEY YA’LL”
    Happy sprouting and blooming!!!
