May ...


 
Hello May

a brand new month
lots of ideas
... my Art table has been divided into 2 sections this week
one for painting and the other to hold some stitchery ideas I've been working on

 

"All of a Flutter"
we opened up our garden pond yesterday and within minutes of the pump being started up, the Sparrows arrived... oh the joy that came from their little bodies which were all of a flutter.
Their wings were flapping, they were singing, as more and more friends arrived to join in the celebration :-)
I'm not sure who was happier about the pond - me or the Sparrows :-)
you are as welcome
as flowers
in May

late morning journaling in the sunshine ♥
The air is like a butterfly
with frail blue wings
the happy Earth
looks at the sky
and sings
~Joyce Kilmer~
The Seasons are shifting.
The Winter shades lifting.
The springtime is filling
Earth's children with mirth.
The daffodil yellow
the South wind, so mellow.
The gentle rain falling
upon the green Earth.
The song Sparrow singing
new life
quickly springing.
All Nature is telling
a tale of rebirth!
The deep wells of being
beyond each day's seeing,
O'er flowing
with new life,
restoring the Earth.
~David Bumbaugh~
