Happy Spring everyone.  I hope it has sprung up where you are. Our spring has begun with cooler temps than we were having before.  It was actually feeling a bit more like summer than spring just a few weeks ago. With spring came some stormy weather, lots of rain and cooler temps, which I have enjoyed so much. Today in my "neck of the woods " the sun is shining, everything is lush,green and the temps are in the low 70's. Weather that certainly calls me outdoors.  I have started a small kitchen garden near my front door, just off the steps. Mostly a container garden of sorts.  It isn't much at all,but is just about as much as I am able to care for.  It's been a fun project thus far, and I have already reaped some benefits from my efforts. Not only has it blessed me physically with the little work I've put into it,but it has blessed me emotionally and spiritually as well.
Not to mention the fresh kale I've already picked and eaten . I love it raw with fresh squeezed lemon juice drizzled over it......yummy! So have you done any planting?  I'd loved to hear about it if so. Whatever you have been up to, I hope you have been blessed.  It is such a wonderful season when all is coming to life again. The birds wake me each morning with their beautiful praises of thanksgiving to their awesome creator. Such a great lesson for us humans. He truly is worthy of all creations praises.  I give glory and honor to Christ for all things. Even those days when tears seem to be flowing. I'm grateful still, for those tears for me have been for a cleansing of my soul.
Psalms 126:5 - They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.

The Joy of the Lord is my strength.

Thank you for stopping by.
Happy spring everyone!

  1. Happy Spring to you as well!
    We are still getting snow, in fact today is quite cold and snowy. I still praise the Lord for the moisture even though it's in the form of snow. :-)
    No planting here for a couple of months yet, but I did plant some herbs that were gifted to me from my daughter on my birthday. I'd like to plant more herbs this summer.

    Have a beautiful day in all its glory~~

    1. Herbs are a very good thing to plant. Always useful in the kitchen, and for other uses as well. I am rooting some rosemary sprigs in a jar in my kitchen window which I will plant later in my little kitchen garden out front later. ❤

  3. Happy spring to you! We had a late snow storm and still had snow piles here until last weekend. We have had a lot of rain which is needed. No leaves on the trees here yet! Too soon to plant herbs on my deck but I am glad you have a little garden growing!

  4. I'm glad you are enjoying gifts (kale) from your garden. It's still too cold here to plant stuff, but my container herb plants have some survivors after winter. A few little thyme and lemon thyme leaves are starting to show. I love the way the little fresh lemon thyme leaves taste in my chicken salad. My chives were the first plants to green up. They are full height now and are setting buds. They have the prettiest lavender, puffy round blossoms when they bloom. They bloom right after the tulips lose their flowers and are so cheerful looking. If you get a chance, and if you don't already, you should try growing some chives from plants. They are so handy to have when you just need a little tinge of onion flavor. The winter killed off my sweet marjoram that I like on baked chicken, and only one branch of my big rosemary plant survived. In winter I move my huge plastic flowerpots of herbs up into the corner where our porch and house create a little bit of shelter for them.

    I guess you can tell that I can't wait to get out there in my flowers and herbs again. I hope my hurtin' knee doesn't have some other idea.

    Happy Spring!
