Exploring outbuildings ~ the perfect rolled top trunk sits ~ waiting for me in the wash-house©

Early morning ~ front porch ~ rocking chairs ~ shelling fresh picked cream peas©

Lunch over ~ brightly flowered table-cloth covering leftovers ~ waiting for supper©

Moving into May
New days
New challenges
New adventures
My life
Changes©

My deeply imbedded Southern roots ~ shaped who I am today ~ open minded and independent ~ we aren’t called Steel Magnolias for nothing©

A flash of lightning ~ thunder in the distance ~ small animals taking cover ~ as Spring fights to hold on©

The plants nearly taller than me ~ Kate taught me how to pick the right leaves to eat ~ Poke Salad ~ a Southern delicacy©

Strolling through the flower strewn xyst~navigating the garden to the matrix of the maze~an absolutely perfect morning© #ohj

Sheets of rain ~ hiding me from the world ~ cover the windows of my pain©

A basket full of surprises ~ champagne ~ cheese ~ grapes and a fresh baguette ~ the perfect picnic ~ Will you marry me?©

Sunlight through leaves ~ a blanket on the ground ~ afternoon picnic of the heart©
