I am savoring each moment of Spring.

I am drinking in her sweet nectar.

I am holding her songs in my heart.

I am enjoying the return of the birds and the bees.

I am rejoicing.

The details of Spring enchant me.

The smells of Spring

and her colors

inspire me to be the best I can be.

Happy Easter!

Dear Sprite,
Thank you!
Happy Easter to you and yours.
I spent the day outside in the gardens. I planted peas and lettuce and cleaned flowerbeds. It feels so good to be out in the dirt!

I love spring and all it brings.

Sherry, It looks like you have jumped onto the first wave of spring and are flying high with the birds.

Happy Day Every Day.

Sherry, may I keep that photo of the bee in the grape hyacinth in my forever file!!! It is incredible!!
The violets are wonderful, too, and I am so jealous that you have lilacs in bud! I have to wait another month for them!

Q said...

Dear Bernie,
Happy All Days to you too. Learning to savor each minute is an amazing experience. It is breath and smiles.
I enjoyed the feeling of the moist earth on my hands and the joy of green pea seeds! The color is soft.

Dear Blossom,
For many years I was an Autumn girl. I had just begun to love Spring in 2005. The Spring of 2007 came very early. The lilacs were in bloom a month early. The heathers were in bud and my neighbor's apple tree sent sweet perfume into my backyard. A cold front came in and for a week I had temperatures in the mid 20's. That Spring over 400 plants died in my gardens. I cried...and cried.
Since that Spring I have been nervous. I have held back not wanting the sadness, not engaging fully in Spring, detaching and being sad.
This year I once again am in love with Spring.
Once again I am savoring each new flower. Once again I am rejoicing and renewed.
Happy Easter,

Dear Mimi,
Happy Easter!
I celebrate the joy of Spring!

Dear Judy,
I would be honored for you to have "Honey bee in the muscari".
The French Liliacs were nipped in the ice a few weeks ago. I do hope they bloom out. I am watching them.

I think I'm going to have to come to your house for spring! It seems like it'll never get here!

Have a wonderful Easter!

Happy Easter, Sherry! Your pics are beautiful, as always. You've captured the essence of Spring - I can almost smell the sweet flowers in bloom! That little bee looks so intent on what it's doing. And your birds so perfect!

I am glad you are rejoicing in spring once more. That year you lost 400 plants must have been devastating!! I also am a spring person, I like watching "life" return to Mother Earth.

Happy Easter!
The energy of spring permiates all things in the most amazing way! I am glad you are enjoying everything it has to offer. I am enjoying the warmer temps, the beautiful flowers, and all the birds! Especially all of the hummingbirds that have shown up the last couple of weeks.
