Signs of Spring: Perserverance

The Hellebore is one amazing plant!  She pushes her way through the ice and snow to bloom, for all to enjoy.  Now that is perseverance!  If she can make it through the unpredictable month of March, so can I!

Signs of Spring: The Melt

There is much freezing and thawing, this time of year, in Michigan.  A bonus of this fickle weather…icicles!  I love icicles!  Some might notice just a few icicles, on a juniper shrub, but not me…  I see a sparkling wonderland!


All one has to do is look a little closer…


Come on…closer…


There you go!


Mother Nature leaves us the most beautiful gifts, if only we take the time to notice…


What an incredible time to celebrate the changing of the seasons…

Love Yourself…Embrace Yourself…Just Be You…




Signs of Spring

Unfortunately, the temperatures have dropped and that evil four letter word is scheduled to return!  SNOW! (Insert temper fit!)  I decided that I could let Jack Frost steal my happiness or I could go on my own hunt for Spring!  As the sun was setting, I took a walk in the back woods, hoping to find a color other than white or brown!  And guess what I discovered… green! And, what a beautiful green it was…

A thin layer of ice is all that remains…
Look at that green!  The fairies will be coming soon!
This old log was covered with life…
I couldn’t help myself…I had to look more closely and see if anything was residing in that hole!
Look at that bright green life, living in that tiny hole!
This was such a beautiful sight!


If you pay close attention, life is happening, even in the darkest corners…

March is a time to celebrate the small gifts from Mother Nature.  There are times in life when beauty feels difficult to locate.  Remember to persevere…  Always look beyond the surface and discover the hidden beauty of life.

Grab your camera and join me in celebrating the Signs of Spring…
