Magical Signs of Spring
One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon, instead of enjoying the roses blooming outside our windows today." ~ Dale Carnegie ~
Only one bedraggled rose blooming outside my window today.
The One Word photo yesterday and the crocus above is what I found when I went searching in my yard this past weekend. The daphne in the top right corner is just about ready to open it's sweet faces too. This time of year is always so delightful to go on the search and to notice what is just outside my window.
Many things bring great delight to me: tea, gardens, flowers, outdoors, food, and friends that cross my path. These all make my heart sing with small chuckles, giggles, laughter, and tears. It is my desire to seek beauty all around me.
