A Touch of Spring

March 1 and spring is just around the corner.
Last week a dear friend of mine came to spend part of the day with me,but she did so much more than that. She brought with her a touch of spring,in a bouquet of tulips. Because of my recent injury,I still don't do stairs really well and my laundry is downstairs,so she took care of the weekly laundry for me.What a blessing that was!

 It's a good thing the fall I had did not injure my trigger finger. Ha! Ha!
I made sure that bouquet of tulips was at a location where I could get lots of pictures,many of which were taken from my recliner. I should add that these shots were all taken with my phone,as that was the handiest most of the time.

Enjoy this beautiful touch of spring.







It was a small bouquet but it brought me huge joy.




A verse for today is:
How precious to me are your thoughts,O God!
How vast is the sum of them.
Psalm 139:17

  18. tulips are one of my faves. very colorful. they have such character. i think i got some in early January from Trader Joe's. they did last for 2 weeks i think it was. i had a ball enjoying them. i have been back a couple times but sadly their blooms have to been that exciting. they have hydrangeas .. but they don't always live that long. so i will wait for another visit. recliner shots. what a great idea. i think you did an awesome job. but i am not picky when it comes to flowers. i am pleased. have a lovely week.

  25. Oh Those Are Lovely!!! Wow you can even get the best photos when you are laid up with your foot in a cast. Glad that your friend came by, the flowers will last forever on those amazing photos you took. Hope you are gradually getting better, this will pass and you soon will be able to do the stairs and get around. Take it easy. hugs nora
