renewal in spring


I find such a sense of renewal in spring.  Everything just seems to be alive with possibility.  The gloom and gray of winter gives way to the riot of color that is spring.

The first flush of roses are blooming in the backyard perennial border.  They are always my earliest arrivals and a sure sign that spring has arrived.

I have decided to take the rest of the week off from blogging, facebook and instagram to prepare for Easter Sunday.  Not the food, the dishes and the centerpieces but the inner most part of my heart.  I feel the need to let the sacrifice made on our behalf reside in my very marrow as we lead up to Resurrection Day.

I hope you all have the most blessed of Easters and I will see you on Monday.

xo, Patty


  1. Patty,
    I saw your beautiful roses and had to come over and take a closer look. The color is very unique and pretty. You know how much I love roses. Is that statue of a fairy or an angel? It's lovely.

    Happy Easter, and I hope you and your family have a blessed day.
