Come on in...

...and wander along the path.
See the chair? My body isn't there today
but in my mind I am there.

Dreaming of weeding the flower beds
and refreshing the water for the birds.

But it has been a tequila week!
If Rock Candy comes across your mind
please say a little prayer...thanks!

Hope your week has gone well.

Blue Monday is the perfect place
to start off a new week.
And Smiling Sally is where the
list of blues begins.

Here are several images to help
make that Mother's Day card extra special.

Mellow Yellow Monday

Blooming where you are
makes for
a happy heart and
brings a smile to those
around you.

Spring is a time for movin' and shakin'
which leaves little time for bloggin'
but oh how I miss it.

Hope all my friends are happy!

great reflections.

I wonder...

by Melba

Jagged bits of walkway
Half-hidden by the grass
Though weathered and broken through the years
Determined they would last.

Till all the children
Whose feet made noise
With hop-scotch and with marbles
No longer pass through memory land
To pause, to look, to marvel.

I dropped a nickel in a crack,
one time when I was young,
I cried and cried about my loss
until my brother come.

He dug and dug with sticks and knives
My coin he could not find
I wonder still if beneath that walk
There's a coin left behind.

My mother-in-law, Melba
at 10 years old
in 1928,
beside the sidewalk.

The first pic (she's 92) was from a recent trip
she and I made to her
hometown of Edna, Texas,
to see if the sidewalk was still there.

It was and being the writer that she is,
wrote the poem Walkway.

Thanks for coming by my
Show & Tell & there's more at
Cindy's My Roma
ntic Home.

And my first time with Family Fridays
Keeping up with the Schultz Family

I know...

I know today is
Tea Time Tuesday
but this is the best that I could do.

I know that it isand
and I know my poor garden needs
a little care, oh who am I kidding...
a lot of care.

If I could stay home
we could share a spot of tea
and as you can see there are
Three or More tools
so my Ruby Tuesday
friends could lend a hand.

but I am off to finish up my booth
with springtime touches.
Terry don't ya love this idea?

You know I love it when you
come by and leave a little love
I know you'll be busy
visiting all the other memes today

Tea Time with Lady Katherine

3 or More with The Gypsy's Corner

Ruby Tuesday with Work of the Poet

I know I want to be there too...

Spring has sprung!

The Texas countryside has come to life
in spectacular color and whether
at home along my front walk or
donning my bonnet and
riding down the lane...
we are all enjoying the show.

Mr. Monarch doesn't mind being
seen on a pink blossom
because the nectar is quite delicious.

Hope your Pink Saturday finds you
out and about enjoying the sunshine.

Thanks for coming by and spending
a moment on the quilt in the grass.

remember Beverly has a
bouquet of pink
for you to enjoy.

How Sweet The Sound

Ta Ta!

Pull up a chair...

I mean PLANT a chair...
in your garden!
How fun is that?

And don't forget about the birds.
They are gonna love this one.
The vacancy sign won't be up
long on this condo.
What lady bird wouldn't
love a room right by the river!

Come to the Quiet

Too much real life and not enough dreaming...
makes me unbalanced.

Come lounge with me...
dream with me...

renovate & decorate

Who wouldn't want a shabby chic hang out?

(Terry I thought of your shed when I saw this)
renovate & decorate
I dream of having my blog friends over,
to share our dreams and passions.
Where Women Create

renovate & decorate

Taking a moment to play
White Wednesday - Faded Charm
Outdoor Wednesday - A Southern Daydreamer

Thanks so much for stopping by
I enjoyed visiting with you
