Lighten Up

It's time to lighten up your home
your spirits
your perspective

Let some nature in, even if
the nature is paper, tin or concrete

Add a little whimsey and fun
even if you still see only white outside

My roses have arrived

Little darling it's been a long cold lonely winter
Little darling it feels like years since it's been here

Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
And I say it's all right

humming it all day

I have tulips owing up, violets blooming, shamrocks leaning towards the sunny window. Its cloudy and rainy outside, but the sun is shining in here! Lucky me I get to go to work today and work in the greenhouse!
Love your bunnies. I have a little collection of them I put out yesterday. Nothing says spring like a bunny!

Angela said...

Your roses are beautiful. And I love the burlap wreath also. Have a wonderful weekend

Roses! It's raining today but I know the Spring is really on the way. I'm bringing out some bunnies this week!

Now I'm humming it! :)

Beautiful post, photos and roses, Z.

Enjoy your day.

Oh your roses!! Fabulous! I know you pay for early (for me) roses with very hot summers, but right now I would give anything to be sitting on your patio looking at and smelling those roses.

I loved seeing your ironstone pitchers. I too have a collection of them at my house. This is my first time commenting, although I have subscribed to your blog for some time now. I first came across it when the name caught my attention. You see, when my Dad was in the Air Force, he had sent a Valentine's Day card to my Mom, his then girlfriend, which stated to My Old Grey Mare??? We teased him about that a lot. He just passed away this past Christmas Eve and whenever one of your posts show up in my email, I feel like I'm getting a visit from him as well. Thank you for that!

Oh Donna, thank you for commenting and telling me that story. It's why I continue to blog. The connections between folks are often so precious and genuine.

You are a no reply blogger so I must respond time perhaps leave me a way to contact you? Have a lovely week. <3

Love that song... sounds morbid, perhaps, but if I were to have a funeral, I would want it playing as everyone left - wouldn't that be cool???
Anyway, yes, time to lighten up. I have summer pillows and summer candles and it's just about time for the great switchover... and yes, a summertime beverage - since the rules of white seem to have left, I think summer and winter drinks are the new de rigeur...
