Of course I yearn for the green of springtime. But since it is just January I had to settle for a spring-like winter vignette to bring me the essence of spring in winter.
Oh, I can’t wait to see little bits of green on the tree branches. I love to watch the leaves open up.
Waiting for winter to bid adieu:
Right now it is as though the trees and the ground is holding back. Hinting at a promise for the changing of seasons, a few months away.
I wait with the joy a child feels on Christmas morning for my plants to reward me for my patience. Such that it is.
A winter vignette:
I dug around in my closet and brought out the tobacco-style flat basket. Then I added two green bottles I bought at HL a few years ago on clearance. Like a dollar or so type of clearance. The best kind!
I love the way the light shines through the green bottles.
And then I finished up with a few faux plants and the green and brown bead strand I bought for half price after Christmas. I think it was around $2.49.
A small dose of spring:
The green of the vignette brought me a small dose of spring. Sometimes the green of the earth is balm for the soul.
I like to gaze at this vignette and think about the daffodils I planted. They should be the first to come up.
I’m hoping the squirrels haven’t dug up all the bulbs I put in three containers.
And of course I must show a few photos of the fur babies this morning. It is cold and we are all huddled in the living room savoring the heat from the black stove.
And Miss Queen of the quilt stacks is having her morning nap. When she wakes up, she’ll be clamoring for lunch.
“Is the spring coming?” he said. “What is it like?”…
“It is the sun shining on the rain and the rain falling on the sunshine…” ―
