Spring officially arrives today, earlier than it’s been in over a century –>  a bit of good news for a change. ;) Spending time outdoors and in nature can be grounding in these uncertain times.

    Happy Spring,
    Mary thankyou for all you do to make our lives more beautiful.Your pictures always brighten my day even now with so much unsettling news
    Good news: Our nesting pair of Ospreys are back on the tower down the road from us,we have 2 occupied Bluebird houses and the Eastern Phoebe is nesting in the garage. Also heard our Towhee calling this am. The tulips and daffodils are blooming and our double file viburnum loaded with buds. Plan on spending my day working/ playing in the garden and turning off,all news for today in,order to honor Mother Earth and the vernal equinox. Spring is here Amen

    Aaaaahhhh…..thank you Mary for the much needed inspiration. When I was out in my garden yesterday evening I was thinking….this is what it’s all about. At a time when we all need to isolate ourselves my advice is to anyone is to plant a garden. Even if you are new to it…..it is a wonderful rewarding past time that anyone can do and does wonders for the heart and soul. Love the quotes and the garden scenes…..just what the world ordered…..
