~leaving you with a touch of early spring

Longing for time to stand still in the days ahead...

as time is treasured with those
 we don't sit with often
we don't squeeze before daytime ends
and meals are not shared
as often as our heart desires

Enjoy your week ahead
while I am enjoying my time with family.
I hope to return and share
wonderful memories
and even a few captured through my lens.

Spring is close by~

'For behold, the winter is past,
The rain is over
and gone.
'The flowers have
already appeared in the land;
The time has arrived for pruning
the vines,
And the voice of the turtledove has been heard in our land.
'The fig tree has ripened its figs,
And the vines in blossom have given forth
their fragrance.
Song 2:11-13 (NASB)

Hi Karen, This post is awesome... There is not a time in my life when I didn't wish that time would stand still...

I didn't do such a good job of balancing out my life when I was younger.. I worked too hard --and didn't take time to 'smell the roses'... These days---I DO take time.... Yeah!!!!

Thanks for an awesome post and photos.

Beautiful - both words and the flower arrangement. I bet your home looks like something out of Better Homes & Gardens or Southern Living!

Just lovely!
