Get on Board

I've been feeling unsettled. Part of it is because the weather has been so strange. It's hard for me to be excited about spring when I don't feel like we've had a proper winter. Do you know I didn't wear long underwear or shovel snow even once this winter?*

Still, spring is here. Yesterday evening I took my fern outside. The poor thing held on throughout the winter, but I felt it breathe a sigh of relief when it felt the breeze. I'm hoping it will fill out some now.

I planted crocus bulbs for the first time last fall, and I have a couple of blooms already.

The Buddha is meditating on the passing beauty of a spring bulb.

The peony has started to sprout.

The daffodils are in bloom. They certainly don't seem upset about the unseasonably warm weather.

Even the sedum has decided it's a good time to get going again.

There's nothing to do besides get on board and accept the changes. In that spirit, I made these for a baby shower I'm attending this weekend.

Newness is everywhere.

*I'm going to be honest. I hope you don't know that. That would be creepy.
