⛳It’s Masters Week here in Georgia and that means the Azaleas are in full bloom. I don’t know how they do it, but I don’t think I can ever remember a year when the Azaleas weren’t in bloom for the famous golf tournament.
While these particular Azalea clusters aren’t from Augusta National, they are from a pretty special person’s backyard……my 94-year-old Dad’s backyard! He has a few of these shrubs, along with rhododendrons that are well over 40 years old! Obviously, he takes really great care of them to get blooms like this!
A popular notecard set in our collection, “Azalea Clusters” includes 8 notecards/envelopes and are packaged in a cream colored, organza, drawstring gift bag.
Keep for yourself or give as a gift, this card will brighten anyone’s day!
We’ve been experiencing some beautiful Springtime weather in Atlanta. The temps were in the high 70’s just knocking on 80 this past weekend and we were running around in short sleeves, shorts and yes, flip flops! Surely the early Spring promised by Beauregard Lee (our resident groundhog) was here to stay?
Nope! Mother Nature has a way of reminding us she is still in control. The rain came in on Tuesday and the temps are starting to dip back down into the freezing zone with our weekend forecast indicating possible rain and snow showers (gulp). I guess it’s a good thing I resisted the temptation to begin my Spring gardening.
But one thing’s for sure with the weather so nice I couldn’t resist the urge to fill the Hummingbird feeders. There have been sightings already in the Atlanta area, so I thought why not?! They haven’t found their way to our feeders yet, but I’m ready for them.
I sure hope this change in weather is only temporary. In the meantime, I’ll be right here reminiscing over these sweet little beauties from last summer’s “30 Days of Hummingbirds” challenge while I find myself impatiently waiting for Spring,
“Happiness will never come to those who fail to appreciate what they have.” ~Budha
I find myself focusing a lot these days on gratitude and this quote really stood out to me. Not from a standpoint of appreciating the “THINGS” I have, but from appreciating where I am in my life. Appreciating my family. Appreciating my friends. Appreciating my health. Appreciating where I am this very second of my life and the time I have been given to experience this chapter in my life.
Sure, others may have more, they may have accomplished more in their careers or experienced situations I never will. But that is their journey not mine. And for that I choose to appreciate and find happiness in my own journey.
What part of your journey are you failing to appreciate that is holding you back from your happiness?
