The Amazing Thing About Spring

The amazing thing about spring is that it comes whether you want it to or not.

When the inner landscape is grey and drizzly, spring explodes in sunshine and cherry blossoms.  It's a good thing too, because it's hard not to be drawn out, to feel the warmth and smile at the exuberant green.

I took a walk, yesterday, past a naturalized lawn all a dazzle with blue Scilla, spotted with pink Shooting Star.  The flowers and the beautiful morning sang together of fresh beginnings.  Miss S and her Nana walked ahead of me here, hand in hand, seeing the world together.  The loveliest sight of all.


  1. The last photo makes me smile. Sweet times. It was a good walk together.

  2. Thanks Cristal. I sure needed that. It is beautiful to see green grass and those pretty blue Scilla flowers all throughout that lawn. I've never seen them here before. Are they planted by bulb do you know? Thanks for the visit and it's nice to see your mum walking with Miss S. Have a lovely evening. Pam

  3. Learning again to see, to notice, to take pleasure in the little things around me - these have been parts of my own recoveries from a world gone dark. Happy springtime to you!
