Tapping at Your Soul…

I can say for certain that Spring is finally here! The grass is growing and there is a beautiful hint of green, among the trees.  There is something magical about those tiny leaf tips, painting the world with life, once again.  Today, a gentle rain is falling…  What is it about the soothing sound of rain that fills my soul with peace?


The magnolia tree is in full bloom, which is another sure sign of Spring!


But, my favorite sign of Spring is baby animals!  Now that the daytime temperatures are above 60 degrees, the ducklings are able to venture out of their heated hoop house to enjoy some outdoor play time.  Once fully feathered, they will be transitioned out to the adult flock.

Ducks love a beautiful rainy Spring Day!

On rainy days like today, I am filled with gratitude.  I am in love with my life.  I would not change a thing! (Ok, unless that means adding more critters!)   To live life filled with passion…what a beautiful gift.  It is an inner pull that waits until I am ready, but keeps tapping at my soul until I answer.  I love the tapping of passion.  I listen to the tap, tap, tap and when I am ready, I answer!

What passion is tapping at your soul?  Listen to it…take a risk…answer the call…

I have been on a very serious hunt for Spring!  It is April, right?  Yet, we had an ice storm this weekend and the kids have a snow day today!  A snow day…in April!  Are you kidding me?!  I did notice this adorable lady bird, crawling around on my rosemary plants.  At least the critters are waking up and finding their way inside!  (Insert eye roll!)


Grab your camera and share your favorite critter!

Happy Spring…I think!

Sign of Spring: Glory of the Snow

Finally…the first blooms of the season!


“Glory of the Snow” Chinodoxa


These beautiful Spring flowers look wonderful in rock gardens and mixing with other bulbs.  In light shade, they will  bloom for 3-4 weeks.  They bloom in the coldest weather, welcoming Spring.  There are 8-10 one inch blooms, sitting on a 6 inch stem.  What a stunning violet-blue color. Head outside and discover the many gifts Mother Nature has to offer!
