Sunday Snapshot ... Fleeting Beauty

I looked out the dining room window early in the morning.  The sun was barely over the trees and everything was sparkling with a dusting of frost.  The pattern on the top of my pick-up truck was beautiful.

It only took a few minutes for this fleeting beauty to disappear.  As the sun rose a little higher in the sky, the frost melted and the lacy pattern was gone.

I hope your weekend is a good one.  While you are in the midst of doing whatever you're doing, take a minute to look around ... beautiful things are everywhere ... you just have to look for them. 

What am I doing today?  As soon as I am finished here, I have to bundle up in warm clothes, gather my garden tools, and hit the road toward northern Virginia.  My garden club is helping to dismantle the garden of a member who is moving.  Spending the afternoon in the company of other plant lovers, digging in dirt (and, perhaps, bringing home a new plant or two) ... what a great way to spend the day.

Happy Sunday, Everyone!


  1. What a lovely thing to gather together and help a friend move their garden. And having a piece of that garden to bring home and incorporate into your own is awesome too. Each time we've moved I've brought a bit of my old garden to the new.

    It's WAAAY too cold to do something of that nature around here today...ground still frozen solid under a foot of snow..

    Have a great day -

  2. Oh- How I wish I could join you!!!! What a wonderful idea to help a fellow gardener- xo Diana

  3. That's where a garden club is for, helping each other when necessary, visiting beautiful gardens together, sometimes having lunch or tea together and endless chatting about our gardens, lovely!

  4. Hope you enjoyed your day, Connie, and it wasn't too cold for you. That wind was awful today!

  5. It sounds like a nice day, and I hope it was and you stayed warm too--That wind is brutal!!! brrrrrr.... :-)
