From the Window Looking Out

Like the magnolia tree,
She bends with the wind,
Trials and tribulation may weather her,
Yet, after the storm her beauty blooms,
See her standing there, like steel,
With her roots forever buried,
Deep in her Southern soil.

— Nancy B. Brewer

Spring is definitely on the way in my area and today I’m sharing pictures taken from my windows. With Spring comes tree pollen and allergies are triggered. It kind of crept up on me this year and threw me into two major asthma attacks before I realized tree pollen was early. Welcome, Friends, as I share with you the views from my windows where I will be eagerly looking out for the next month or so.

“He who feeds a hungry bird, feeds his own soul.”…….Charlie Chaplin

“Be the bird perched on a frail branch that she feels bending beneath her, still, she sings away all the same, knowing she has wings.”…….Victor Hugo

“Have you ever looked at the bud of a magnolia flower? It’s a tight little pod that stays closed up for a long time on the end of its branch until one day, out of nowhere, it finally bursts open into this gigantic, gorgeous, fragrant flower that’s ten times bigger than the bud itself. It’s impossible to imagine that such a big beautiful thing could pop out of that tiny little bud. But it does.”

Joanna Gaines, The Magnolia Story

“Even the woodpecker owes his success to the fact that he uses his head and keeps pecking away until he finishes the job that he starts.” …..Coleman Cox

“Never be afraid to sit awhile and think.”…..Lorraine Hansberry

“…..a little bird told me that today would be awesome. GOOD MORNING!…..Susan Gale

Look out your windows and have a wonderful day.
