SPRING is nature's way of saying,
"Let's party!!"
-Robin Williams

Hello Spring!!
50s in the evenings with 70s during the day.
Moved all the large plants out of the house and will take the orchids out Easter weekend. 
The house always seems larger after getting the tropical plants outside where they belong!

Nothing soothes the Soul like a walk on the beach!
Our last visit with Mom,  we walked every morning.
For some reason, walking on the beach and listening to the waves makes everything seem okay again!! 
We really must make this a habit.

A visit to the white sandy beach!
The Keeper of the Shells! 

Drawing her first heart in the sand!

Daffodils for MeMaw.
The first week of Oct. 2016, Mom suffered a stroke, paralyzing her left side AND she lost her home to Hurricane Matthew five days later.  We are back and forth between Atlanta & St.Augustine in order to care for Mom and to rebuild her home.
Brought my daughter and grandbaby down
this last trip to visit MeMaw! 
Daffodils are Mom's favorite Flowers!
Unbelievable weather for Ocean Fun -
in February!!

Happy Valentines Day!

Tall and Mini Daffodils

Stainglass Daffodils I made in 1981

I thought that spring had sprung too early this year.  But I checked my photos of my daffodils several years ago and they were taken just a week later.
With the Star Magnolias blooming so early though, they are vulnerable to damage by late spring frosts. 
My favorites are the mini Daffodils!! 
Hope your Spring is lovely!!
