There’s something magical about seeing the sunshine bouncing off the crystal snow-covered world. The combination of ice and hot existing at the same time is a mesmerizing dichotomy. We’ve had such a mild winter this year with nothing but a dusting on a couple of occasions. And while enjoying spring like days is physically enjoyable, the absence of the snow has left some of us missing the ethereal beauty that happens each year when white covers the world with a sense of cleansing.
So today we don’t have a deep covering but when I look out my window and see the blanket of white that is only disturbed by a random footprint of a deer I feel a sense of relief. This is why I know I will always live in a place that experiences all four seasons. The ebb and flow of change is good for my heart and soul.
Enjoy these pictures of Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter and be blessed!
There is something about spring that makes me want to plant things. I can’t explain it as I am not one for gardening or tending the yard at any other time of year. I usually think nature is a wonderous thing as long as I just have to “look” at it. But transformational seasons of Fall (my favorite) and Spring are just, well … different. Spring’s air still has a crisp feel to it when the wind gets wipping up. I love that because it brings the sent of lilacs rushing at me. The tiny leaves and buds and flowering trees give me a sense of hope and wonder. One would think I would have outgrown such emotions as I’m not a “spring chicken” contemplating the world. But I am definitely a spring fan!
So, I sit and swing; plot and plan; shop and dig and bask in the possibilities of Spring.
