A Texas gal. . .

 
sat in her winter garden. . .It made her smile to see a few of her roses were still blooming.
 
She knew that fairy babies hid in each one. . .
If you listen closely, you can hear the flutter of angel's wings. . .

It is at this time of year, she enjoys the warm  winter sunshine and dreams of gardens to come.



She knows that she can continue to enjoy her "indoors garden" as she watches the paper whites spring forth with lovely white blooms.

 
As she strolls her garden paths, she thinks of the periwinkles she will plant in the spring in honor of her maternal grandmother, Maude Mae Crownover. She was told these were her grandmother's favorite.  She never knew her grandmother in person, but she has always known her in her heart.
 
She is thankful that even in winter the little song sparrows flock to her feeder, and it makes her heart sing to see them there!
 
There is nothing sweeter than the warm sunshine on your skin on a cold winter's day.  She would like to stretch out in the warm sunshine and snooze like a mother cat.
 
She prefers a cottage type garden.  Nothing too formal for her.
 
 
She can almost catch the smell of her lovely roses as they burst forth into bloom this spring.
 
This Texas gal wishes all of you a happy winter's day as we think of springtime blessings to come!!

Vicki, dear...it's been so long since I've come to visit...I've missed you.

I love your post sentiment and all the lovely photos of your vintage goodies. I imagine being surrounded by such pretties. You paint a beautiful picture with your words. This Texas gal agrees about curling up on a cold day in a warm sunbeam.

Have a glorious day, friend,
