As the Daffodils and Tulips

As the daffodils and tulips wake from their winter slumber, I too return to writing.  It has been too long since I have last written here.  The time spent away was one of much needed growth and renewal.  And as with the flowers, I hope to share beautiful thoughts and photographs that come to mind.

We discovered a rabbit's nest in the garden once again.  I believe it is in the early stages of being built. Last year, we had an abundance of bunnies in our summer squash patch.  At this moment, our garden is nowhere near as lush as it was then.  We need to figure out a way to help mama bunny have a peaceful nest without the worry of constant predators.

    1. Good morning, Barbara! I have yet to see the bunnies. Just the nest so far. I am certain we will see them soon though.

  3. good to see you back and posting again, glad the time away was a good one for you and you and the family are staying healthy.
    We have only had bunnies in our garden once, since my surgery I don't know if I will get to one this year, hubby isn't fond of taking care of the weeds, so might have to wait until next year. We had snow yesterday, thankfully only half an inch and it is mostly gone this morning as we have gone above freezing, crazy weather again this year!

    1. Connie, maybe you could just have a little tomato plant or so in a planter. Then you could just pick the few weeds (if any). Less work but still technically a garden! No snow here but it is freezing cold! I'm glad you are doing better after your surgery!

  4. Yay for the nest discovery! We had a bunny in the yard about 2 weeks grazing on the clover. I hope your garden is plentiful for you this year.

    1. Robin, we saw the mother last night in the nursery patch. She must have been feeding her babies. We saw her covering up the hole before she hopped away! My husband is in charge of the garden this year. I will be busy with the new puppy!

But oh! the blessing it is to have a friend to whom one can speak fearlessly on any subject; with whom one's deepest as well as one's most foolish thoughts come out simply and safely. Oh, the comfort — the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person — having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together; certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away. ~Dinah Maria Craik, A Life for a Life, "Chapter XVI: Her Story," 1859
