Good Morning, Sunshine...
"My name is Margalo," said the bird...
"I come from fields once tall with wheat,
from pastures deep in fern and thistle;
I come from vales of meadowsweet,
and I love to whistle."
E. B. White, "Stuart Little"
I'm really not trying to be mean...I know that some of you are still in what seems like the throes of winter...but, here for now anyway, we are throwing open the windows and letting in sunshine and bird song. Can't you hear the screen door slamming?
The lilacs are blooming and soothing our senses with their sweet scent...
...and Lady Banks is spilling her soft beauty over the garden gate...
...and Cecil Brunner is preparing for a grand opening...
"White silver bells upon a slender stalk,
Lilies of the Valley deck my garden walk."
- from an old song
The wisteria is once again putting on a show up in the 'sky garden'.
To celebrate all nature's beauty, and to send along the warmest of wishes at this Easter time, I have set the table with a nod to the sights and the sounds of Springtime.

We, at Gold Country Cottage, wish you all a beautiful and happy Easter...
...and after a small brunch of cheerios, soft boiled eggs and freshly squeezed orange juice, we are off on a ray of sunshine to spend a few days with the kids.
I'd like to tell everyone how much we appreciate all the kindness that you shared with us over the loss of our sweet boy, Buddy.
We can never tell you enough how much all of your support and compassion means.
