Soul Food

I know I promised more trip pictures this weekend, and all my intentions were good but the call of beautiful weather and a yard/garden that hasn't been tended to in way too long, brought LM and I outside for most of Saturday and Sunday!  I had a burst of energy and I dragged my left leg (knee needs replacement) around after myself and we accomplished a tremendous amount. How lovely to see all the green shoots coming up under the mountains of leaves we raked away.  We now have a little pot of pansies on the back step and at least one small area of the garden is neatly trimmed and raked. we couldn't stop exclaiming about feeding our souls!!

Your header is beautiful. Yes, the outdoors does call at this time of year. I spent the better part of the day outside.
Have a nice evening...Balisha

I love your new header--what a beautiful view!!! I haven't raked as yet--but I am about too!!! I think, here in Michigan, we need to wait just a wee bit more before we rake off the protective layers of leaves--we have been known to have heavy snow in April.

This is great. Enjoy the nice weather and the beginnings of spring. You had a long, hard winter. It is time to bloom again. Hugs.

I agree, your header is really pretty! We cleaned mom's back porch from leaves and swept the patio and put out her furniture! It looks really nice, all she needs is a few flowers to round it out!! My tulips are getting ray to bloom!!...debbie
