“Impatiently Waiting for Spring”

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,

The Flower Doesn’t Dream of the Bee….

“The flower doesn’t dream of the bee, it blossoms and the bee comes to it!” ~Mark Nepo

I seem to be drawn to Spring themes and drawing from your inner self, lately. When I read this quote its says to me “don’t chase your dreams, relax and let your inner beauty blossom and you’ll attract goodness in your life.”

Are you letting your inner beauty blossom?

The Earth Laughs in the Flowers

“The earth laughs in the flowers.” Ralph Waldo Emerson⁠

I did a double take when I first read this quote. But when I thought about our neighbor’s overgrown Forsythia bushes bursting up high above the fence line it made perfect sense. I can now imagine the earth bursting with laughter through the flowers as it awakens from the deep freeze of winter.⁠

How about you? Are you bursting with laughter as the flowers begin to come to life?⁠
⁠I know I am!
