Good morning folks! Spring has sprung in Southeast Georgia. Between the profusion of lavender Wisertia on the trees and the mint blooming in the cattle pastures with sweet smells wafting across the expanses, it’s hard to pick a favorite scene. The countryside is lovely right now.
The Confederate Rose (Hibiscus mutabilis) on the cemetery fence has finally woke up from a long winter’s nap. It’s not completely done blooming, but I thought I’d share what it looks like right now before the rain hits. I understand that the rose hips can be ground up and eaten for Vitamin D. Never knew that.
My husband’s niece and her husband have been renovating the kitchen in their old home. She’s been sharing the photos with us so now I have the redecorate ‘bug’ too. One of the items they have done is to make a special coffee klatsch in their kitchen from an old dresser. They’ve done a lovely job and it’s ever so practical. Now I want one! *lol* So, Steve and I went furniture shopping yesterday and found this:
That thing weighs a ton too. It’s solid wood. Our plans are to redo the top with tile or something durable, then place it over by the window with all our coffee maker, flavors and paraphernalia on it. I wanted to paint the wood, but Steve said “No”. He’s all for leaving it natural like our kitchen cabinets. Thoughts?
We also paid our first visit to a new coffee shop here in Pierce County called Southern Grounds. It was OK. Not as tasty as Cafe Euro in Jesup, but it was fun to do something different. The decorations were well done, I thought.
The pollen is almost finished wrecking havoc on our sinuses. It was time to wash the metal steeds. They were so yellow one couldn’t tell what colors they were! Now that the pollen has abated, I have to also pressure wash the house. I sure dread that. Tears up my shoulder and neck every time.
And, I don’t know who brought the lovely flowers at Church this week, I forgot to ask, but they are gorgeous.
Well, time waits for no man, nor even a Sparky with good intentions. Gotta go start on all our projects. I hope your day is blessed!
“For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again,
even so God will bring with Him those who have fallen asleep in Jesus.”
