The day began bright and sunny and I was drawn to the buzzing, humming and twittering outside. I watched the birds and the bees, the budding plants and I was overall delighted with the progression of spring.
Something has to be said of the fresh green tips, the dark red, still unfurled, leaves of the maple trees, the just opened blossoms of the azaleas and the wisteria, climbing around the garage wall.
There were the sound of insects, birds busily flattering in and out of the hedges, looking for food, twigs and this and that to build their nests...
The lilac begins to green, in front of the, still standing, dried grasses from last year. A task waiting for me, to cut them, to make space for this year's growth.
In the afternoon all changed to kid's laughter on the trampoline, my son and friends sprung happily around and the sounds of
happy chatter rung through the otherwise quiet neighborhood. These are the moments I so cherish!
My sweet young neighbors explored the blossoms and the garden at large, not missing a beat!
They discovered what I had found earlier this morning: The beauty of spring!
Wishing you all the joys of the season and a Happy Easter to come! May you all feel a sense of awakening and renewal!
Easter greetings to you all!
