Anticipation

Waiting. Patiently.

My granddaughter Anna made the beautiful flower covered ceramic art in her high school ceramics class. She gave it to me at Christmas. I put a glass jar inside to hold the stems in water.

The daffodils are from Ireland, but bought them at Trader Joe’s Monday afternoon.  I’m sure many will have opened up by morning.

Bringing Spring inside

Kaleidoscope in Motion in the Children’s Garden

Kaleidoscope in Motion at Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens in Columbus Ohio. In the Children’s Garden.   A perfect day to play outside as it was sixty degrees.

“A kaleidoscope (/kəˈlaɪdəskoʊp/) is an optical instrument with two or more reflecting surfaces tilted to each other in an angle, so that one or more (parts of) objects on one end of the mirrors are seen as a regular symmetrical pattern when viewed from the other end, due to repeated reflection”  Wikipedia

 

Found on my Doorstep

I didn’t hear the doorbell ring or the knocker on the front door but look what was left on my  doorstep.

I found a beautiful bouquet from my neighbor’s garden.

A sweet note attached to the glass milk bottle.

Thank you Marion. A lovely way to start this sad day of remembrance and memories.

Your flowers are absolutely gorgeous.
