A Pretty Purchase and A Little More Spring

This happy colorful little work of art arrived yesterday. I purchased this sweet little work of art from my friend Constanza of POR AMOR AL ARTE. Constanza is busy crocheting, embroidering, or using thread and fabric to make banners and more just about every day. She is a lovely person who appreciates the beauty in the little things of life. Stop by her blog for a visit to see the beauty she posts.

These dear little chickadees visit my yard daily.

Beautiful orange tulips.

This is Patrick's rose bush. I am so happy to see it doing so well. Patrick planted it last Spring during his visit here. I can't walk past this rose bush without thinking of him. It has been six months since he left us. Tears still fall ~ I really miss our talks. I know that time will ease the pain and memories will always be close to my heart.

Audrey, your pics are lovely! I have chickadees at my window feeder, don't you love them? Everything is blooming at your house! We still need a few more days of warmth, but my cherry trees have kicked in. :) I know you miss your bro, how could you not? Sending you love & hugs - xox Pam
