Right out my front door the brilliance of the azalea causes me to pause, take a deep breath, observe their magnificence, and then, slowly, move into the day’s demands. For Spring is fleeting bursts of brilliant blooms that blossom for oh such a short time and then blow about in the blustery breeze vanishing before your eyes.
No matter your geography, I hope you can smell the sweet sweetness in your backyard, park, or neighborhood…From the low lying tiny blooms to the grandiose flowering trees, Spring delight is everywhere you find yourself.
I encourage you to take in the delicacy of the bloom, the aroma of the spray, and the blush of the plants photographed from my backyard and revel in this ephemeral season for a brisk moment.
Venture out into the new greenery and stand solid for long enough to take in nature’s wonder alive around you. As we leave May behind and open the door to June, I hope daily life is easier, with more lake-side dinner picnics, leisurely woods-walks, free-time creative-time, love-laughs into the twilight and cherished memory-makers.
