It Made Me Think...

If you peek out the back door, the White Rabbit
seems to beckon to you...

He surely is telling Giles, it's getting late...

Stop and smell the roses, or in this case ~
the french lavender
that's just about to bloom...

I found a beautiful poem the other day~

Sitting and watching Giles listen to the rabbit...
Zeke and I have been pondering and thought we'd share~

Ask What Makes You Come Alive and Do That.
Because What the World Needs

Are People Who Have Come Alive~

-Howard Thurman

Let's All Be Curiouser and Curiouser

Happy Weekend!

xoxo, Tracie

I have been thinking about Alice in Wonderland this past week. I love this post. The saying was so powerful. The exciting thing is I feel like I'm coming to life!

Hi Tracie and good morning to yah.
I think the rabbit is a great choice, this one won't eat the vegetation.
Love the poem.

Have a wonderful sunny day.

Penny @ Lavender Hill Studio said...

Tracie!! What a marvelous poem! I am jealous that your lavender is getting ready to bloom. Mine is just turning green again!

So glad you loved the lasagne roll ups...I know you will enjoy the chicken pot pie too!


An Enchanted Cottage said...

Tracie, I love that quote! I just heard that for the first time a few weeks ago. And yes, our children do grow up so quickly! So you have one about the same age as my youngest. I love your animals, too. Thanks for the comment on the memorial photos of our fur babies. Hard to believe that six months ago we had five and now we're down to two. They've all grown old together. That's the one and only downside to having fur babies... they don't live long enough. Zeke looks huge! What kind of dog is he? And last, but not least, I love your white rabbit garden statue!!... Donna

Hi Tracie :)

I love that you have the white Rabbit in your garden! He's so cute :) Wonderful post!

ahem... Bobby Sherman? LOL

Okay, so my collection IS a little crazy, but I put away the candles for the pics.... hehehehe....

Not really, but I think you're right about them being scared LOL

The "G" channel? uh uh... nope. Do you remember Tom Patten on Saturday? He would draw something from a doodle, that kids sent to him and then he showed The Little Rascals and Popeye cartoons. I always thought he was national, but nope, only in CA.

Have a beautiful Saturday Tracie! I've got to go buy some candles...

Suzy said...

Hi my friend,

I love your garden and this cute rabbit. I love to smell the roses but I just adore lavender. And lately I have realized that I am alive when I am out there being part of nature. And you could say that I am curios about nature that surround me (I am ashamed to say how little I knew).

Enjoy your Sunday, and let me know what where you curious about today! Suzy

Hey Tracie,
I just wanted to let you know that the doggie holding the basket is now down to the left of my porch steps. He is guarding the porch and felt he could do it better from there. Have a great day.
