Sunday Serenity...

The strongest
and
sweetest
songs
yet remain
to be
sung ...
~Walt Whitman~

We've noticed lots of Robins  in our garden this Spring - twice as many as other years.
One sweet Robin has decided to build a nest in the trumpet wine which grows along our fence.
It doesn't seem like the safest spot as it's low enough that we are able to look inside it (with the 4 sweetest little eggs tucked inside).  I smiled when I saw some of the blue yarn I had left outside was put to good use!  We'll keep an eye on it - I have a "bird's eye view" from my Studio window ... I just had a look and she is sitting inside it now.
The blessing of new life ♥
The weather today is amazing ~ time to open the pond :-)

Saturday ...

 We had quite the change in weather & our walk today required winter coats, hats and gloves!
Every now and then it would start to sprinkle ...
 We could hear the birds singing happily but none were spotted ...
 So I had to look for other things to take pictures of...
 and found a heart shaped rock  ♥
Archer's reinactment of Pharaoh in the opening credits of Downton Abbey :-)

Bunny Ears...

 Who knew a happy Lab came with their own bunny ears :-)
The happiest day of the week for Archer ... like us, his ♥ is in the country!

The Spirit of Easter
is all about
HOPE
LOVE
&
JOYFUL
LIVING.

 It doesn't take very long, once we are home
 after a good long walk/run ...
and it's time for a nice long afternoon nap.

HAPPY EASTER

April hath put a spirit
of youth
in everything
~William Shakespeare~
 We've filled our urns with  pansies, wrapped them in grapevine and tucked in pussy willow stems where ever we can :-)
 spotted  signs of new LIFE...
  everywhere we looked ...

Sunday Serenity...

 Nature has been for me
for as long as I remember,
a source of
solace
inspiration
adventure
and
delight;
a
home
a
teacher
a
companion

~Happy April 1st~
