Sunday safari

Patches of snow still lay in protected places.

Today is Owen's Day.


I care for his plants.
Today I had four blooms.


The lavender is blooming again.

Having the plants in the bedroom this winter
 has been delightful.


                                                        The sun came out this afternoon.
                                                          I sat on the deck with the birds
                                                                        and a book.


                                                         My friend's fourth mystery novel
                                                                   is in the book stores.
                                                                I love each of her stories.
                                                            Her characters are alive for me.
                                                                     This one is exciting!


                                                      February's hearts and flying carpets
                                                       are packed away.
                                                      I am ready for March's
                                                       kites and shamrocks.


                                                I watched the Full Snow Moon last night.
                                                 Clouds have come in for tonight's moon rise.


I am making my plans for March.

                                                          My March journal is ready.

                                                 Each morning in March I will read a blessing.

It is time to celebrate the Irish.

Soon I will sow seeds.
I wonder if March will come in like a lamb or a lion?
Goodbye February!
Happy Sunday safari.

Your March readiness makes me excited for the coming month. Aaahhhhh sunshine. I can't wait until we have some. I have crocus about to bloom. They just need some sun.

I love your new journal. I need a pretty bound journal for extra thoughts and dreams. Happy March to you! ♥

Sending hugs to you on Owen's day, Sherry. How nice the birds came out to bring you some joy today; as the snow melts here, I am seeing fewer and fewer at the feeders. I am ready for March, too--can't wait to see the robins and soon the bees!

Your journal looks enticing, and, as a devoted Tasha Tudor fan, I love the images you posted Sherry!

Thank goodness March is so close, yikes it's tomorrow! The sun was out this weekend off and on - we are ready for Spring!

Chris said...

Lovely blooms, Sherry. March, for us, has come in a like lamb, oh dear! We wait for the lion! Glad to see you have sat on your porch :-)

Thinking of you on Owen's Day ♥
March has come in like a Lamb here ~ the sun is shining & the snow is melting. Happy March 1st.

Sending love and hugs on Owen's day. I am glad you have blooms today. You cardinals are pretty too.

March has come in like a lamb here. I hope it doesn't go out like a lion!

You have the most interesting books and I love the covers. We had clouds last night so I only caught a glimpse of the moon.
