Yesterday was beautiful! Spring like! Today is another story...cold, drizzling, cloudy...we are having a light freeze tonight...brrr! But alas, there are many signs of an early Spring here in East Texas... Can Spring be far behind when the Redbuds are blooming?
The Pear Trees down by the lake are in bloom...a sure sign of Spring!
We took advantage of the warm weather yesterday...we spontaneously decided to do a little garage sale~ing. Joei drove her cute little VW. The decision was made to take her car. We rationalized that since it has a small trunk, it's perfect for cottage-size shopping trips! We further surmised it would put somewhat of a curtail on our purchases! Hey, we need all the help we can get when it comes to putting a quietus on what we bring home...small trunks included!
We rode around town from sale to sale...windows down!
After stopping to peruse the goods at one of the sales, we returned to the car only to find that we had a little visitor...an unwanted visitor but nonetheless a visitor that is a sure signal of spring! A honey bee sipping nectar from the little daisy in Joei's car!
C'mon Spring...I'm so ready to go to Lowe's and buy a beautiful green fern and some blooming begonias for my little planters on the porch. I'm ready to decorate the front porch and relax on the swing...day dreaming while the sun warms me.
Our porch is an extension of our cottage. It is considered to be another room...and I lovelovelove to decorate it for the seasons...to welcome the anticipated visitors...here at the cottage, warm weather signals the beginning of many weekend visitors.
We painted our front door RED because red on the front door is a cheery way to greet guests. In feng shui, red is a recommended color for the front door, as it is believed to invite prosperity to the homeowners. Prosperity can have many definitions...When it comes to family and friends, we are very prosperous...
