Sometimes You Just Need a Little Break...


LIFE IS GOOD

So much is happening in my gardens! 
I've been so busy busy...

30 days since my last post...
Don't give up on me... new post is coming soon!

(Besides... I've missed visiting all of you!)

Painted Ladies Migration

       
  Que the music...
                 The Painted Ladies are dancin' in my Utah gardens!





Migrating north from their winter in Mexico...
they're on the lookout for pretty flowers.





And our gardens actually have a few. 

Sipping nectar from the blossoms gives them energy 
on their long flight...





as they make their way across the state, 
 pollinating the orchards as they dance.

This is the beginning of delicious apricots, 
peaches, pears and apples...
Yum!





Think of the delightful conversations 
they must have with their fellow pollinators 
as they pause to bask in the warmth of the sun.

But just for a minute or two...
and then they're off!
What busy lives they lead.




I think they get a thrill 
just dancing through those beautiful blooms...
wouldn't you?





Spring... 
every living creature rejoices!

Spring Blooms!

Did you read BLOOM as a noun... "Spring Blooms"
or as a VERB... "Spring Blo-o-o-oms"?
Actually, you could read it either way
but I wrote it
as a verb.


 

As in... Ta da! 
(Drum Roll Please)

Spring has finally arrived!



  
 Is there any season
that brings such SWEET anticipation?
I don't think so.




In the Fall we plant bulbs deep
in rich garden soil 
and wait PATIENTLY throughout the Winter
for the warmth of the golden sun to wake them up.



And when they do...
it's a really BIG deal.
Oh we do get excited when the Tulips bloom.





Springs brings RENEWAL to our gardens...
 every bud and blossom, 
every blade of grass
every leaf 
is fresh and new.





 This renewal of life
 TOUCHES our SOULS
and reminds us of our Divine Creator.





And we feel very BLESSED... 
blessed to live in this place, 
blessed to cultivate this earth,
blessed to nurture all 
that share our space...
the birds, 
the bugs, 
the bees.





Isn't it a glorious scene to behold
as the earth AWAKENS?

So glad it's SPRING!




But so mindful that SNOW could still fall
in This Grandmother's Garden.

Visit Carol to see more blooms 
on this very day 
all across this beautiful world.
