Spring Garden Party

Good Morning!

Today is Monday April 25th and we are honoring life, friendships, Spring, and gardening! 

The ladies from Share Your Cup and Thoughts of Home on Thursday welcome you to a

Spring Garden Party.






Today we welcome you to link up what grows on your patio, in your flowerbeds,

veggies in the garden or herbs in terracotta pots.






What ever sort of plantings inspire you.




Today I am sharing my Texas gardening spots (except for the veggies.) 
Oh, and my youngest daughter's new puppy Captain...
smile...I could not resist!







Since our home is new our flowerbeds are working hard to grow strong and full.






So, while they fill in and grow full and abundant I have focused on adding pops of color in 

all sorts of pots and containers.






You will find herbs, petunias, ferns, impatiens, geraniums, succulents and such.





Later on this week I will be sharing my favorite plants for Summer time, and a peek

at my hydrangeas...squeal!

Some information on growing hydrangeas.






My Garden...





is my...






Happy Place


Muddy fingers, broken nails and sun soaked skin revel in the magic of what nature 

gifts us.





How can one tiny seed or fragile plant give birth to these glorious blossoms...



One can only sit, wonder and marvel at the divine plan of it all.



And watch in quiet mediation as the vibrant rays of the day slowly meld and soften to a 

sleepy evening glow.



The energy of the day relents to the persistent nighttime cloaking of the sky.



My Texas Garden welcomes you and now it is your turn to share your garden.







Please visit these Lovely Ladies~

What joys do you find in gardening?

Change Is Good & A Blog Party

I am sure that during the course of  life you have heard that change is good for you.

However, change can be challenging and difficult.

Relinquishing the familiar, where safety resides like an old friend, then trading it all in for 

uncharted sailing where we could find a rough and treacherous sea.


Change inevitably means letting go of what was, and trading it in for something new.

Change is futile to resist, it arrives like a gust of wind on a Spring day.



Our backyard today.


"Life is a series of spontaneous changes.  Don't resist them; that only creates sorrow.
Let reality be reality. 
Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like."
-Tao Tzu






Our backyard in May of 2015


"The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking.
It cannot be changed without changing our thinking."
-Albert Einstein
























Our home today

"The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but building on the new."
-Socrates




Our home last Fall 2015


We have had many changes this past year and I have had to call upon some calming 

reminders.


Each one of us has stress and anxiety in our lives and it is discovering those "secret 

weapons," that create a feeling of harmony in which to help us find a sense of calm and 

serenity.



Some find solace and comfort surrounded by the stillness, beauty and serenity of nature.


"Change your thoughts and change your world."
- Norman Vincent Peal




Others find balance and tranquility in preparing the soil, nurturing the seed and 
embracing the flower as it blooms.


"What is necessary to change a person is to change his awareness of himself."
-Abraham Maslow

Sometimes change is the catalyst to open a new door to supportive 

and nourishing friendships, new projects and dreams.

More changes are happening here and I would like to invite you all, to join 

four Texas Ladies for a new weekly link party.







Thoughts of Home on Thursday, is a serene and gentle spot, where we welcome you to 

share decorating, recipes, gardening and inspiration that transforms your house into a 

home.


Our first Weekly blogging party begins Thursday February 11th, 2016.
And just like any good party, there will be some exciting surprises.
Please mark your calendars and plan to attend!
