Six on Saturday pictures should be a relief from the serious news around the globe. More so are the actual flowers blooming in our yards, neighborhoods, and regions.

It reminds me of the Dreamsicle frozen treats … Continue reading Flowers In The Time Of Coronavirus
The trees are greening up pretty quickly now. The view from our deck is a jillion shades of green, as we look into our woods beyond the fence. My husband said this week, "The Lord must love the color green, since He made so much of it." We aren't venturing out of the yard much, … Continue reading Six on Saturday: It’s Officially Spring
