Blue Skies, Sun and Garden Dreaming!

It's a beautiful Morning!
 I'm so pleased the sun is out and it's 
another beautiful day! 
To my dismay it's still winter but
I do enjoy the blue skies and sun!

The sun was streaming in through
the kitchen/dining area and I
loved how it looks on the terrarium.

I added more plants to my terrarium. 
 I found some more potted
silk plants from Pottery Barn.
I was delighted to see the
flowers of tulips, daffodils and

I've been thinking of naming my Angel so
I did a little internet searching.  I googled 
"Angels of Gardens" and came up with
Cathetel- Angel of the Garden

I know it's not a real garden, but I like
to pretend it is and I love her
 sweet face.  
Perhaps I could call her "Cathe" 
for short 

The sun is impatient and
minutes later it is quickly moving away.

I can hardly wait for spring so I can get
out and breathe fresh air daily and
watch the gifts of the earth unfurl!
I leave you with this poetry....
God's Garden
THE Lord God planted a garden
In the first white days of the world,
And He set there an angel warden
In a garment of light enfurled.
So near to the peace of Heaven,
That the hawk might nest with the wren,
For there in the cool of the even
God walked with the first of men.
And I dream that these garden-closes
With their shade and their sun-flecked sod
And their lilies and bowers of roses,
Were laid by the hand of God.
The kiss of the sun for pardon,
The song of the birds for mirth,--
One is nearer God's heart in a garden
Than anywhere else on earth.
For He broke it for us in a garden
Under the olive-trees
Where the angel of strength was the warden
And the soul of the world found ease.

Thanks for visiting!


  1. You managed to get a lot in your terrarium and it looks lovely. Love the photos of the scenery.

  2. Your terrarium is so dang cute! I wish some of that sun would show it's face at my house today. The grey is getting a little old.
    I love that poem. I've heard the "kiss of the sun for pardon" part dozens of times, but didn't realize there was more to it. So pretty.

    1. Thank-you! The terrarium is turning out to be fun for me and I can change it's looks when I want. The poem struck a cord for me- glad it tied into something you've heard before!

  3. I think "Cathe" is one lovely angel, that name is perfect. I enjoy the music here, too, Liz. I could stay here with a cup of tea or coffee and listen and relax for a few moments. xo

    1. Thank-you! Sometimes I often leave the music playing and listen myself! I'm liking the name Cathe too!


Thank you for your comments! I don’t always get a chance to reply but I do read them!
