I hope you are feeling better. I get migraines too, almost every month unfortunately. That was one of the reasons I was away for blogging for 3 weeks recently. I never used to get them but since being in my 40's I keep getting them. They stop you doing anything for days. Most inconvenient! Your photos are very uplifting as ever.
Warm wishes

Happy Monday Sweetie...
Oh Duchess I had forgotten this poem until you tweaked my brain this morning. How beautiful it is.

I love your beautiful flowers that you have shared with me this morning. They scream "SPRING" for sure. How very sweet of you. I adore yellow as it reminds me of the beautiful sunshine here in the valley. We are in the 80s again. Yesterday was 82, today we are expecting another hot one. I love it. One of the reasons we live here in the desert. I do not like the cold.

Have a beautiful Monday sweetie. Thank you again for sharing. Country hugs sweetie and so much love, Sherry

Hello there dearest Duchess,

Why it seem these days as if I merely, 'blink my eye twice' the time has flown by so quickly!..,It seems that just only 'yesterday' that I had visited your blog and since that time you have posted so many lovelies!

What beautiful prose and poetry in your last posts my dear!


Dear mother has written many a lovely poem; I should post them sometime soon! Poor dear, she is much pain with a severe case of the 'shingles'!..,

She just started medication with antiviral pills and should soon be on the mend !..,

..,She has been quarenteened for a few days;( and since I have suffered from Anemia, which is thankfully improving, the doctor thought it best, whereas I had had the same thing last year, almost this time of year, to stay apart for awhile)..,

~ I told her nonetheless, I will bring her hot chocolate tomorrow and something everyday, to pass to her at the outer door of her apartment; she was in tears today when we dropped some bread off to her poor sweetest lady, as she said she was so lonely!..,

That is why I decided to go by anyway,daily, despite doctors orders; I shall take precautions by sitting far across the room in the foyer, adjacent to her.

I do apologize for the length of this note yet I mention all of this dear Duchess, because we are planning a Spring tea to cheer and lift our spirits, at each of our respective homes, (as her health improves).~ That always cheers, as does your radiantly lovely blog daahling!

Thanks so much for visitng my blogs
lately dearest Duchess!..,

Cheers from Wanda Lee @ The Plumed Pen

Sweet greetings Duchess from Frog Hollow Farm. Just adorable, that little ditty! Hope all is well in your world! Ciao, bella!

Katy Noelle said...

You just reminded me to peek outside and see if my daffodils are blooming yet. Okay, I'm back! They are! (well, just a few so far.) I think this little batch is, at least, two weeks ahead of everyone else in the town.

In our new/old farmhouse, we had a lovely stone wall with huge clumps of daffodils. Last fall, we had to dig it up and I was only able to find a few of the bulbs. This year, in the mounds of dirt, they're coming up. Hooray!!! There are even some bulbs that we didn't even see last year that are lying on top of the piles and still blooming. I think that they must have been uncovered by the rain. I am so glad that we can save some more!

I will tell you a secret. After Easter, Mr. Tom is going to rebuild the stone wall and I get to plant a lovely English country garden in Vermont! Happiness!

Love, Katy Noelle xo

You have cheered me up on a dull and rainy day with those gorgeous photos. I love spring flowers. They look so pretty when they are all together in a vase but getting them to all come out together in the garden is a little more difficult.

This is such a sweet rhyme and very dear to me. I played "Daffy Down Dilly" in my kindergarten production when I was 5. My first acting job of many more to come!

Sorry Duchess for the double posting. I tried to delete it but it doesn't work. Blogland problem I presume. !! Laura

Ingrid DeVilliers said...

Dear Duchess

Oh, what a wonderful blog you have...it is such an inspiration! I just love tea...I drink about 5 to 6 cups of tea a day....hot tea...I live in the USA and that is why I say "hot tea" because here they drink "iced tea". I guess I love hot tea because I was born and lived in South Africa for 38 years. I am planted here in the USA and here is where I bloom.....

I love England...the country side, the tea cups, the queen and everything royal...I am a total romantic and love all Jane Austen's books and movies. I love the pubs in winter with a hot meal by the fire side....

We have a lot in common and therefore I will surely visit you again!
