Sunday Thoughts ~ April 26, 2020

“Outside the open window, the morning air is all awash with angels.” ~ Richard Wilbur

Good morning sweet souls.  I do hope this finds you well. Isn’t it lovely to visualize the morning air “all awash with angels?”  I think so. Even though this morning I see rain. However, I enjoy rainy mornings, so I am happy.  I do hope you are also and are ready to take a wee stroll with me.

Dear friends, thank you so much for your visit.  Know, I am wishing you and yours a beautiful day and week ahead.


May beauty and laughter be yours every day.

Note:  Regarding the images on this blog, most come from tumblr unless otherwise noted.  Most often, I am unable to determine the photographer or where the photo was taken.  All I can say is the photos are the work of highly talented souls and I would be happy to attach a name if I could locate one.  I find great joy in sharing their work with lovely quotes from my personal collection and am hopeful the two together provide a message of goodwill.

This was definitely worth the trip, Sandra. Such lovely photos of spring. Don’t know if I can choose a favourite but I LOVE the pink poppies! And I’m smitten with the quote you share by Anthony Douglas Williams : “There are places on earth where we can catch a glimpse of heaven.” He speaks my language.

I know I’m sneaking into your Sunday post and it’s only Saturday evening. But I couldn’t wait.

Blessings for a lovely day and week ahead.

Good morning, Sandra! You always choose the most perfect quotes and beautiful photographs to brighten our day! I hope you have a most blessed and happy day and week ahead! Take care, sweet friend!


Oh, those swans! How I love them all. The only place I’ve ever seen pink poppies was in Giverny — I loved them there and here! Hugs this (maybe) sunny day!

A delicious walk in nature where the variety is wonderful. You feel serenity when looking at the beautiful images. I highlight the family of the swan mother with her numerous children … What beauty, what tenderness … How beautiful is nature!
