Long Time

Sunday Sketches
  It may seem like a long time since I last saw the hummingbirds and yellow finches.


















 Or spotted a patch of wildflowers



















or looked up at such a soft blue sky...




















or caught site of a butterfly...




















or seen hills shrouded in the morning mist.

In reality it hasn't been so long.  It just seems so.


When one is waiting time seems to slumber.

May all of you have a blessed week!

Hugs Debbie

  1. Debbie, thank you for these lovely photo of what is in store for us if we patiently wait. The birds, the flowers, the green grasses all will return...maybe not quite at the speed we are hoping for, but in good time. Enjoy this week and know that God does provide! Happy Easter Week!

  6. Debbie, the sketches are so beautiful! And you have grass and flowers already?? Not here yet, though I did finally see robins. Supposed to hit the 60's today (it was in 20's and low 30's for the past week) and for next couple of days it will be close to that...maybe some color will spring forth. We shall see. Love your gorgeous views and photos. I so wish I had your peace of heart too. What a blessing you are to me. May you have a blessed week yourself!

  10. Hi Debbie, I love your bird sketches and it's wonderful Spring has arrived. I'm even toying with the idea of taking over the gardening chores this year for some exercise and a feeling of accomplishment. I was blessed with sighting a Tufted Titmouse in the tree outside my kitchen window the other day. Couldn't catch a photo of him though but it was fun watching him flit from branch to branch.
