What joy to be here

No matter what the season

Find your Middle Ground

~

This photo makes my heart sing! Spring is full of bursting energy and anticipation for the change ahead. What a wonderful feeling after the hibernation of winter.
It takes me back to walks in Scottish woods as a child, small dogs and fields of bulbs.

No matter what the season, we can all pause and find this place of gratitude and love within us all.

  1. Holding my breath for spring’s arrival, Val. Mother Nature has been teasing us here in the Northeast…a bit of warmth, and then, bam, a smack of snow or freezing rain. Guess it will be all the sweeter when it finally arrives for good… πŸ™‚

  2. Lovely picture and words, Val. 25-30 more cm of snow on the way here. I guess spring will arrive at some point!

  7. Reminds me of my childhood. We had fields of bluebells that bloomed in the spring. It was gorgeous until they bulldozed it down and planted grass. Sigh.
