Time to Lay Red to Rest!

  It was   a rather easy  way to  transition from  Christmas  to  February.. just  keep the red  and   pull out the hearts...  and  surely sweetheart will   provide  more red  somwhere along the way,  and  he did!!!   Such  luscious red roses...

You love the roses - so do I.      I wish 
The sky would rain down roses, as they rain 
From off the shaken bush. Why will it not? 
Then all the valley would be pink and white 
And soft to tread on. They would fall as light 
As feathers, smelling sweet; and it would be 
Like sleeping and like waking, all at once!
George Eliot 
Febrauary was a great time to plan a get together....
 so  about 8 of our  prayer team got together to plan  ahead  for   Christians United to Pray prayer and praise events  around my table over  chocolate pie and coffee. The recipe found here.
Highly recommended!

A splash of  valentine red 
set off by valentine hearts  lends such a cheerfulness to the  drab of winter days...

A rosy mantel   spills into    the parlor sharing  a joyful mirth even though that room  sees  little other  we seek the comfort of cosier  spaces!
but a chilly parlor  seems the fitting spot  to  preserve for as long as possible the  gorgeous  roses  sent by my  lover and best friend, Lynn! They definitely  brighten up the room!

 So I have made my decision  today...  Ive had it with  winter...  we've had our snow  which still blankets  the ground...  the kiddies have had their  sleigh ride.... 

 and  when the    bloom has  lost  its    beauty, then  the red will be gone.. packed away... and  spring will  sprout  fresh and alive  around the house....  I will bid adieu to  February  and it's  lovely red  that has  almost   out lived its welcome.... time for  yellow, violet,  green, and blue!
