rejoice & rebirth

Rejoice rebirth 1
Happy first day of spring!
It’s the season of rebirth when everything is starting to sprout, grow, bloom…

The arbor into our vegetable garden is taking off & I love the way it looks this time of year.
I would love to plant the vegetable garden and some containers around the patio but the forecast is calling for another big storm passing through over the next few days so I’m going to wait until next week after it passes.

In the meantime I can enjoy what mother nature is already offering us.  There is so much to look at, smell and revel in.  I’m reminding myself to slow down and reflect all that the season means and has to offer.

Our wisteria is growing slowly, very slowly, but I know closer to the summertime it will be full and lush.  I will be patient and enjoy every stage.
Along with all the fresh, new growth II also revel in the sounds of all our animal friends coming out of hibernation or migration or wherever they have been spending their time.  I love the sounds of chirping, and flapping wings & buzzing.

These sweet little white flowers are all over our front yard.  Not sure what they are but I do have an idea | project for them.  I hope to share soon.

This is also the time of year we celebrate the rebirth of our Lord Jesus Christ and rejoice.
Easter Sunday is one week away when we will celebrate His resurrection.
Take some time to revel in this and let it fill your heart & spirit.

The Lord reigns;
let the earth rejoice!
