Cool days, cooler evenings
Time for sweaters.
Chop the wood, stack it high
Get out the leathers.

Trees of yellow, orange and red
Mums in full bloom
Roses bending, lilacs sad
Skies of gloom

Chili on the stove, stew at a simmer
Aromas fill the room
Apple pie, hot cocoa sweet
Just a good time before…
Winter’s gloom

by Melody Wallace

After a wonderful Easter with the family . . .

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom. – Marcel Proust

In Time of Silver Rain

In time of silver rain
the earth
puts forth new life again,
green grasses grow
and flowers lift their heads,
and over all the plain
the wonder spreads

Of Life,
Of Life,
Of life!

In time of silver rain
the butterflies
lift silken wings
to catch a rainbow cry,
and trees put forth
new leaves to sing
in joy beneath the sky
as down the roadway
passing boys and girls
go singing, too,

in time of silver rain When spring
and life
are new.

Langston Hughes


As the week

Comes to a sure end

Count all your blessings

Follow the positive trend

For things not so well

Quickly flip them over

Those are life’s challenges

Cover with a 4 leaf clover

Wishing you the finest

Wishing you some rest

When you look into the mirror

Who you see . . . is the best

Timothy Brashear

Walk and touch peace every moment.
Walk and touch happiness every moment.
Each step brings a fresh breeze.
Each step makes a flower bloom.
Kiss the Earth with your feet.
Bring the Earth your love and happiness.
The Earth will be safe
when we feel safe in ourselves.

Thich Nhat Hanh

These candle arrangements are so easy to make.  Use silk flowers rather than fresh and it’s that much easier and reusable for next year.

Placed randomly throughout the house, they are little reminders of the holiday season.

The candles look especially nice when lit in the evening!

I’m holding onto summer for as long as I can.

Hopefully, a few very simple floral arrangements will do the trick!
