Driving through town today,
I passed one of the many 100 year old homes
that dot our historic area.
Once a lovely homestead,
this quaint building
has lived its modern life as numerous restaurants.
Now empty, it waits ~
for the tinkle of glasses and
laughter, and life!
This (currently) green house with
a history all its own,
is the home of a female ghost.
(That's a post for another day).
I always look over and glance in the windows
to see if I can see a shadowy figure
looking back out.
Although I didn't see a ghostly white figure,
I spotted beautiful white blooms
all along the side of the house!
Known as the
it blooms at the end of winter
just at the beginning of Spring!
It has large,
that bloom on naked branches
before any leaves appear.
What a lovely view
for the mistress of the house
to see each day!
remnants of the last restaurant,
still hang in the shrubs -
but didn't deter the birds
from starting an early nest!
Nor did all the chickens and roosters
gracing the exterior of the building!
The beautiful blooms are there -
at the corner of Hawkins street,
for all to see.
I wonder who notices
the perfect blossoms as they drive by?
Definitely a STAR - in my book -
so beautiful as they grace
the side yard of this soulful empty home!
True beauty -
Perfection by way of humility,
offering glory to those who take time to see.
