Visit With Me

Visit with me for a few minutes
to see all that is emerging in this relatively new garden.

A very cool morning in the 30's
but now the sun is shining so bright.

As I sat outside for a few moments
wondered if I pointed my camera to the sky
would it reveal the lovely view I am seeing.
It worked
The lilacs smell heavenly
and want some on the table inside
but hate to pick.
Snowball bush getting ready to bloom,
much has emerged in the small garden
and much has not surfaced.
So much pleasure to see all that has been
planted arrive and all the wildflower seeds
planted are a special gift.
Prayer flags are blowing in the breeze.

A busy life in the past
and so welcome is this time of slowing down
and enjoying nature...



and do not forget

You have much more spring color than I have. Your pictures are beautiful. And oh, if only people could only be kind to one another, what a different world we would live in.

Charlotte, thank you. It is so pretty outside and can hardly wait for my daughter and granddaughter
to arrive next weekend.

That first photo really captures the beauty of a spring sky. Your garden has really grown!

Oh my goodness, what wonderful images you have given to us! It makes me happy all over to see your trees and clouds and plants.

We had snow this morning - it didn't stay, but there it was, coming down in huge white flakes. I should be ready for such odd turnings in the season, but this one caught me by surprise.

Such beautiful pictures--gives me hope that soon, my gardens will give forth their beauty. Bright sun today here, but cold at night. Such is spring in Michigan.
