Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

Tiptoeing

We've had a few nice days with temperatures in the 70's. It's been heavenly.


The bulbs I planted last fall seem to be enjoying the weather too.


I made a tulip for the front door to celebrate beautiful spring.

Darling door tulip, and it won't even die out in another few days! I wish I could make food out of material. Then they could enjoy it over and over again and I'd never have to make more, until it faded on the table.

What a wonderfully cheerful idea! A tulip on the door! (I have Clyde the cat passing back and forth in front of my monitor because he wants me to feed him!)

We've had a few nice days too in southern Utah, then the storm hit last night. We got over an inch of rain last night and today. I guess Utah just doesn't believe in spring, lol.
Love your flowers and the one on the front door is adorable!!
