Spring is upon us. The forces of nature have continued unabated throughout this pandemic.
We may be diverted and lost our focus, but nature continues moving forward!
There’s no stopping this awakening! Visible signs of spring are everywhere… Look down, look up, look out and you’ll witness nature’s splendor.
From the earliest snowdrops and witch hazels to the fragrant old fashion lilacs nature is begging us to take notice.
We all need a break and are exhausted from this pandemic…but fear not, there is hope and it’s right in front of us!
Take a short walk and witness all the beauty that surrounds us…don’t forget to slow down and take a deep breath.
Who knows, maybe you’ll see a new emerging flower, or a hummingbird on a honeysuckle bloom. Or maybe you’ll get to see the first bloom of a bearded iris! Maybe we’ll feel so rejuvenated that we’ll finally be free from this pandemic.
We must move on and start enjoying ourselves once again. Nature is waiting for us, so take a deep breath and enjoy!
