Soft moss a downy pillow makes, and green leaves spread a tent,
Where faerie fold may rest and sleep until their night is spent.
The bluebird sings a lullaby, the firefly gives a light,
The twinkling stars are candles bright, Sleep, Faeries all, Goodnight.
---Elizabeth T. Dillingham "A Faery Song"

Reflections of Spring

With my job demands I sadly have not had much time for gardening and surely not enough for blogging.  I took a much needed day off to catch up on my personal hobbies and to decompress in general.  I have taken many spring pictures since we have had an early one here in southern middle Tennessee.  Everything has seemed to be so accelerated this year...I want to click pause so I can drink it all in.  Here are a few of my favorite shots.                                                     
Spring House--Very Shady Here
