Rose Tea Cottage

Where tea is served at half past four




She wore her yellow sun-bonnet
She wore her greenest gown
She turned to the south wind
And curtsied up and down
She turned to the sunlight
And shook her yellow head
And whispered to her neighbour
~Winter is dead ~


Happy Spring My Darlings

Thanks for the visit dear! If you would ever like a photo to accompany your link on my sidebar, just let me know with a note and attachment sometime. It is perfectly inviting without one if you prefer not. I noticed you took time off as you said in your post. I do this routinely for say five days or more at times. The muses play with my imagination after some walks in the birdsong, and some cozy time with my Whitman or even a fun little book, Hens Dancing. I try to read Proust's A Remembrance... starting in Feb and go until spring pops, but this year I happily diverted by other books and only got to the second volume. Well off am I the little ones are waking...
Blessings and thanks again, Amy

Liebe Duchess,ja langsam wird es Frühling, wurde aber auch Zeit!!
Ganz lieben DAnk für deine Kommentare bei mir und auch für deine Übersetzungen, Du brauchst Dir wegen der Übersetzung keine Sorgen zu machen, ich verstehe alles und hoffe das Du meine Kommentare auch verstehst. Denn ich schreibe lieber auf Deutsch, da ich mich in Englisch einfach nicht passend ausdrücken kann. Dafür musst Du mir einfach verzeihen!
Nun wünsche ich Dir einen wunderbaren Frühlingstag und freue mich auf weitere Kommentare von Dir
herzliche Grüße
Marlies

Hello dear Duchess. I am so happy you stopped by. I lost many of my blogs I love to read. Have gotten some back, but having to put them back in my retyping them. It is a glorious time and finally it feels like spring here. We had nothing but rain for about 2 weeks. The tea and scones were delicious.

Daffodils bring such light-hearted joy. And they are blooming everywhere, a happy reminder that Mother Nature hasn't totally forgotten about spring even if the horrid weather won't let up.
