Beauty in the Ordinary

This is not about being brilliant, or extraordinary, it's not about wanting to be famous, or making headlines, or trying to impress...this about sharing a 'gift' each day with the lift the spirit of people when they read this blog, to show them the beauty in the ordinary.
"And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it." Raold Dahl

So Much for Spring!

This is the view from my front
door this morning.  It started snowing last night and is forecast
to continue all day.

The artifical pear tree is in bud...I hope it survives...

My birdbath is waiting to be filled
with fresh, warm water...enough with freezing snow and ice.

 My garden furniture is
waiting for me to be sitting there, soaking in the afternoon sun,
sipping an ice-cold sauvignon blanc.

Wishing and waiting...sigh...


  1. You have got to be kidding!! We all deserve the warmest, most perfectly temperatured spring and summer that there ever was...ever! This cold weather nonsense has definitely gone on long enough!
    Thinking warm and sunny thoughts for you J...
    xo J~

  2. Me too. what a lousy day. My grass was greening up.

    Your niece Trish won my Pay it Forward Giveaway. I wanted to send you one of the prozes since you have been such a great supporter of my blog. can you email me you address.

  3. I can relate! Yesterday we had rain, snow, sleet, corn snow, blue skies, sun ... Spring? Not yet!

  4. Wow Chania...thank you! I'll e-mail the address!
    I could not agree more Jessica and was truly depressing, so much so I had to bake a raspberry buttermilk cake!

  5. Ooh my Gawd - we had a nice warm day today. Come back...

  6. I don't think there's even a way to get to an airport Tom, or believe me...I'd be on the first plane out of here...
    and the photos, that was at 9am this morning...there's 10x more snow than that now!

  7. 21 C forecast here for today. I've even taken my shorts out of storage!


Go on...make my day...
