Of Shamrocks and Snapdragons


Today is Springing out all over!!! Temps to be in the 70's!!! Yesterday I picked up a basket of shamrocks and a bouquet of purple snapdragons from the market. They are truly an example of nature's "bling." While reading quotes earlier today, this one inspired me to begin keeping a special diary this season of nature's gifts as they unfold throughout March, April, and May!
Make yourselves nests of pleasant thoughts, bright fancies, faithful sayings; treasure cottages of precious and restful thoughts, which care cannot disturb nor poverty take away from you, cottages built without hands for your souls to live in. ~~John Ruskin

Spring isn't quite springing yet here in VA - but it is just about to!
