Joyful June

Joyful June

As sweetest lilacs waft their incense round,
Graceful spirea dons her bridal gown.
Purple-vested irises hold heads high,
And cheerful pansies smile up at the sky.
While June presides, coy summer marries spring,
As with joyful voices, birds are carolling.

The hyacinths are blooming;
Their sweet perfume abounds.
New tulips are standing tall
Where crocus last was found.
Crimson cardinals are wooing
Feathered maidens in the trees,
And the promises of summer
Softly whisper in May’s breeze.

Easter Crafts for 2017

Before every holiday and every special day such as “Mother’s Day” our little church crafting group make some special crafts to deliver to the local nursing home.  Here are some of the things we made for Easter this year:

Easter Crafts for the Manor 2017

In the photo above are some ribbon woven crosses, paper plate bunny faces, paper plate Easter Bonnets, tulip cups filled with chocolate eggs, and Easter cards.

We set aside three hours on a Saturday before the holiday to make the crafts and we supply our own materials – usually easily obtained from our local dollar store.  It is a time of fun creativity for us and a labour of love.  The crafts are well-received.
