Looking through my sun room window I see that the creek has overflowed a bit. You can see the shimmer of the water in the sunlight.
It reminds me of how nature can alter things, change the landscape, change lives. The tornadoes that ripped through the South left so many people devastated; my heart and prayers go out to them. looking at this little overflow of water, I realize that it could be so much more than that, but as you can see in the photos below, Thistle Creek returned to normal without any help from anyone.
Each day the trees get fuller and the woodland plantings that were so tiny when we installed them, they sprawl and thrive with very little care. They provide a home for the birds and visual enjoyment for us.
I carried that viburnum in one hand when I brought it home. I think it likes it here.
There are two extremely large butterfly bushes on each side of the virburnum. I look forward to their blossoms. They attract humming birds, and of course, butterflies. I'm just about finished with my tea and it's time for me to get back to working on my slipcovers. I hope to be able to show them to you soon. They are turning out to be more work than I thought but that's ok, I'm enjoying the journey.
Have a great week. Thanks so much for sharing tea with me today.
