Spring Days


We have been enjoying perfect spring days.  Our days have been warm, sunny and a pretty blue sky.  We have enjoyed refreshing spring rains.  We have been puttering in our yard and our garden.  Such sweet pleasures and simple blessings.

Our days ahead look as if we may be in for some chilly days with rain.  It looks like we may be enjoying inside days where it is warm and cosy.  I do like those kind of days now and then as well.

♥ Spring Sweet Spring ♥


Gardening God's Way

Plant three rows of peas:
Peas of mind
Peas of heart
Peas of soul

Plant four rows of squash:
Squash gossip
Squash indifference
Squash grumbling
Squash selfishness

Plant four rows of lettuce:
Lettuce be faithful
Lettuce be kind
Lettuce be patient
Lettuce really love one another

No garden should be without turnips:
Turnip for meetings
Turnip for service
Turnip to help one another

Water freely with patience and cultivate with love.  There is much fruit in your garden because you reap what you sow.

To conclude our garden, we must have thyme:
Thyme for God
Thyme for Study
Thyme for Prayer

This is a good way to tend to our garden ... inside and outside.

Simple Saturday

This is a quiet and peaceful place that we love to visit during the spring time.

Hearts Garden

With this being spring, it is time to plan, prepare, plant and harvest in our little kitchen garden and around our yard.


I keep a Home Journal and have for many, many years.  I keep poems, sayings and quotes that I have found throughout the years.  I love to browse through them from time to time and thought that you all might enjoy this one as well.  I found it to be heartwarming.


Hearts Garden
by Katherine Merrill

My heart is a garden where thought flowers grow.
The thoughts that I think are the seeds that I sow.
Every kind loving thought bears a kind loving deed,
And a thought that is selfish is just like a weed.

So I must watch what I think each minute, each day,
Pull out the weed thoughts and throw them away,
And plant loving seed thoughts so thick in a row,
There will not be room for weed thoughts to grow.
