 March is the month that always teaches me patience.   This year is no different.  We went from 70 degree weather to 50's.  The peepers were in full song for a couple of days but now they are quiet.

As always I am anxious to get outdoors and start digging.  It is too soon.  Just need to be patient a little longer.

In the meantime I will enjoy a  cutting of forsythia and pussy willows along with the last few petals of a Christmas poinsettia.

Also taking delight in a few houseplants.  Growing something indoors feeds one's soul until warmer days return.   

This thriller was suggested to me by a friend.  Stacy Willingham is the author.  Sounds like it will be a page turner.  Perhaps this will help to keep me patient.

Well take care friends.  Have a wonderful weekend.

Hugs Debbie

"Be patient, then brothers, until the Lord's coming.  See how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop and how patient he is for the autumn and spring rains."  James 5:7 (NIV) 



  1. Being busy with plants is so good for the soul! I totally agree. Yes patience, but we will enjoy spring so much more when it comes. I love forsythia! Love the yellow, so hopeful!

  2. We had so much rain our snow was almost gone. Yesterday it returned. The white covering is back for another few weeks!

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  3. I was up early this morning getting a plant transplanted before the rains hit. I love playing in the dirt! lol
    Happy weekend!

  4. The verse at the end: wow...!

  7. Beautiful. Our flowers are early as well. Our niece is coming April 12 so hope we still have some bluebonnets.

  8. Dear Debbie, What a lovely post with the good content and the beautiful photos!! We're still in 35'c today though, the quote reminds us of the beauty of positive patience and the hope of the future. Thank u! Take care not to catch a cold. Have a warm family time weekdays!! ((Hugs)), Sadami

  9. That's how I feel at the end of summer, waiting for our first cold front! It's always fun to anticipate the pleasures of the season to come.

  10. Love your photos! I am trying to wait patiently for spring to arrive, but it seems to be here one day and gone the next. I bought some daffodils today to make it look more spring-like inside. Have a great week!

  11. It's not always easy to be patient when we wait a long time to do something we want, but it's just a little longer and spring is almost here.


I love reading your comments. Thanks for leaving one.
