|Sun shining through the Dogwood tree|
I have been setting my alarm each morning to awake an hour earlier than usual. It's part of my efforts to improve body and mind this Spring. Soon I will be slipping on my walking clothes and putting the ear buds of the itty bitty iPod in to enjoy favorite music while exercising.
Isn't this picture pretty? The Dogwood tree is now in its' last stages of bloom. Yesterday I continued my "little at a time" lawn and garden work by pulling weeds from under the Dogwood.
Just my way of thanking the beautiful tree for giving me such joy this season. Hmmm... I guess I am a tree hugger in my own way and I'm married to a guy with a Master's in Forestry. We love trees. ;)
Today I want to send you over to my friend Heather's blog (she is one of my "blog daughters"). I love the reading list Downton Abbey inspired, she has a fabulous list of books... here. She also creates gorgeous felted flowers and other pretty things.
Oh, yes... I decided to put the zinnia header back just because it makes me happy. Zinnias were my father's favorite flowers and I love them, too.
