Some Flowers and Crochet to help make your day!

Hi Friends…
Need a little pick me up? 
 I could sure use one today! 

It's rainy and chilly this morning…I even turned on the fireplace to 
take off the chill…it's June!  Wow. 
I love when the weather does this though...
It's a nice change this time of year. 
It's a perfect day to just read a book, but I can't 
seem to stay focused on one.

It's supposed to be back into the sunny 70's and 80's next week, so 
looks like this chilly, rainy day and hopefully my mood will be 
short lived! 

There's so much busyness going on, like with this bee, 
and just too many things 
taking up space in my head right now. 
I tend to worry needlessly about things that haven't even happened.
It's so frustrating and such a waste of time, but
how do you change that about yourself?
Don't you hate it when you feel that way? 

 I think I just need to stop and smell the flowers 
like Fetzer here, 

…and keep crocheting! 

…and crocheting, 
what do you think? 

 What do…

this year than it did last.

I love how it looks as though the blossoms are 
weighing down the branches.

The tree was here when we moved in 2 years ago, so I don't really 
know how old it is.  I'm guessing it's a fairly young tree though.
My mother loved Dogwood blossoms/trees, so I was 
thrilled to discover I would have one in my garden to 
enjoy and remind me of her. 

Have you ever read about the legend of the Dogwood? 
In Jesus' time, the dogwood grew  To a stately size and a lovely hue. 
'Twas strong and firm it's branches interwoven 
For the cross of Christ its timbers were chosen. 
Seeing the distress at this use of their wood 
Christ made a promise which still holds good: 
"Never again shall the dogwood grow 
Large enough to be used so. 
Slender and twisted, it shall be 
With blossoms like the cross for all to see. 
As blood stains the p…
