We will be in the dark of the moon now until the Full Pink Moon.
Now is a good time to plant root vegetables.
Thundershowers are in the forecast for tonight.
A strong wind from the southwest has flatten many of the flowers.
I sat with the daffodils just in case the wind and severe
weather damages them.
Having daffodil time is always a delight in the Spring.
I am following "Journey North" as I watch for the
Baltimore Orioles and the Hummingbirds to arrive.
The Juncos will leave soon for their northern breeding areas.
Soon I will put out oranges and grapes for the Orioles.
The wild violets are opening.
I saw Mason bees in the Spicebushes.
It is early for the Mason bees to nest but just in case
we like to be ready.
I have my sun hats out.
The temperatures will moderate but today is hot!
We have had a few nice surprises.
The Christmas cactus has re-bloomed
and a Black Swallowtail emerged.
My husband brought in a chrysalis he found the first of March when he clean up the hops vine. I placed it in a bowl of dried flowers.
What an honor to see this miracle of nature.
I celebrate the bee in April.
Each day I do something to honor this noble creature.
I collect bee lore.
Today I once again fall in love with the Moon.
I collect Moon lore.
After reading The Illustrated Cottage I have been inspired.
Nina Williams created in her home and gardens a frame work for a fairy tale. An amazing book and a cleaver idea.
I love the Art Nouveau style. Yet my home and gardens are much different.
My home and gardens tell the story of two lovers.
I look around and see my photographs on the wall. I see the art work my children did when they were young. I see family photographs and lovely reminders of our parents and Grandparents. I see the woodworking my husband has done. I see the gifts from family and friends. I see birds, bees, butterflies and buds.
I see beautiful. I see a wabi-sabi home.
As I look about once again I am in love with my home and gardens. I am in love with my collections and my passions.
I am in love with our music and baseball on radio.
I am in love with April.
I shall look for the Bee in the sky.
It is near the Pleiades, my favorite constellation.
I am falling in love; head over heels.
I am falling in love with this life I am living.
May you fall in love with your life this April.
Happy Sunday Safari.
