"To make an end is to make a beginning." - T.S. Eliot
Hi all, did you enjoy the weekend? Ours was so lovely I hate to see it come to an end. The perfect mix of outdoors and exercise and cozying up inside. Of socializing and nesting. Of projects and diversions (Downton Abbey!). But there are no new beginnings without other good things coming to an end, I suppose.
This time of year, with the holidays over and Christmas packed away, when the days are short and often gray and rainy, I always depend on the little harbingers of spring to keep my thoughts fixed on the bright times that are really just around the corner.
I've been forcing some hyacinth bulbs in my favorite blue and white container. They greet me at my dressing table each morning, and this week a bit of purple is beginning to peak through.
New York Parties
I can almost smell their heady fragrance already.
What's your favorite harbinger of spring?
