Spring at Beverly Cottage 2008

Spring has indeed arrived here at Beverly Cottage.

With the much needed rain we received a few months ago, the flowers are in their glory.
The rose arbor in the back garden is a bloom in its magnificence.
Even the common geraniums are putting out a beautiful show and reminding me of why I pinched a cutting from the mother plants I passed by on a wander or walk once upon a time, sometime ago.

I remember my nephew being surprised and a bit shocked when I helped myself to a tiny slip of the wonderful magenta geranium as we were leaving a restaurant.
Now it delights me as I remember how beautiful it was at first sight so many years ago.

I have had my eye on a white geranium that we pass on our walk at a grandma's house. I just need to ask her if it is alright for me to have a slip. It will be very pretty in the secret garden.

Come for a cup of tea and a visit to my garden at Beverly Cottage soon!

I have been waking up at 5:00 in the morning to the sound of an unusual bird song that I have never heard!
I cannot describe it to anyone other than it is very different, almost like a parrot. It repeats its song over and over. It isn't really a song though. It is the only bird calling out. When the other birds are waking and starting their morning rituals this bird is silent. Perhaps it has flown away by this time. I only hear it in the dark. My neighbor and husband have heard it also. If only we could see it to identify it. It has been present for about a week now.
It is a mystery!

Daughter Of The MOST HIGH

Monday, I joined a Bible Study of women from different churches in the area.
At the end of the study, one of the ladies announced that her church was having an event,
"A Night Of Elegance" that next night, and was there anyone who wanted to attend as she had tickets.
One of our prominent news casters was to be the guest speaker which excited me and made me desire to, at the last minute buy a ticket. I was interested in visiting this church that I had herd so much about through the years.

Last night a few of my girlfriends and I attended the "Night Of Elegance."
As we entered and were led through the many beautiful tables set up for this event, our eyes rested upon the most "elegant" of tables set.
To our amazement, the table was not reserved and there was space for our group!

The hostess said that she desired the Lord to bring the women to that particular table for her to host, and that she had not chosen any of her friends to sit with her.
We were truly blessed and felt as if the Lord were honoring us for our ministries.
Our news caster, Carol Le Beau spoke to our hearts about the importance of true friendship.
It truly was a night of blessings.
