‘Twas a lucky morn here!
As the rain showers ended, the birds began to sing so loudly,
as if to share the happy news…
I grabbed my denim jacket and headed out for my morning walk through the garden
observing the quick growth of foliage, in so many shades of green.
I have been checking the garden each day for a week or so.
Today was different ~ a wee bit o’ green and purple!
Oh, my heart! The first Springtime blossoms were open!
Miniature irises were in full bloom
and crocuses were just unfurling their petals.
Daffodils will add sunshine to the garden any day now.
It’s still too early to uncover our Midwest garden beds
from their crunchy, leafy confetti
here in USDA Zone 5.
Snowflakes are predicted this weekend.
(We have memories of one late March snowstorm of 16 inches!)
While we wait, we enjoy our favorite garden books and magazines
and dream our garden dreams…
Our Conservatory, in a nearby park,
is a lovely oasis
filled with sunshine
wee bits o’ green.
It’s the perfect place to pause and reflect…
I have been feeling so lucky
(and by lucky, I mean blessed beyond measure!)
for all of the special people in my life.
YOU are one of them!
Thank you so much for stopping to visit today.
Wishing you lucky days, too!
