A Walk in a Spring Garden

Updated on August 19, 2014

A Walk in a Spring Garden

With winter slowly losing its hold, a walk in a spring garden is filled with promises and wonders of new life. Just about every corner has a new color or burst of greening, even bare branches are filled with sounds of birds as they busily prepare for their offspring .

Is it any wonder that a walk in a spring garden can be as renewing to the spirit as a sweet promise of hope?

Springing to Life!

The spring awakens with the sound of buzzing all around. There's great work to be done!

New Beginnings

A peek inside this opening daffodil reveals the soon to be awakened beauty ~

Just The Start ~

~ Of Hope

May Your Dreams...

...Be a seed, set to sail!

Bloom... - Where You Are Planted!

Spring's Simple Beauty...

...Is Before Us, Allowing Us To Pause ~

Spring Unfurls...

...Giving Promise ~

Blue Bells...

...and Butterflies ~ Rebirth!

The Kiss of the Sun

The kiss of the sun for pardon

The song of the birds for mirth

One is nearer God's heart in a garden

Than anywhere else on Earth

--Dorothy Gurney 1858-1932

A Baby!

Nature's baby, a hummingbird moth, busily starts life, seeking nourishment from a weed...simple beauty to behold!

Renewal ~

...and Rebirth ~ Ahh, so Sweet!

Honey to Bee!

A Wildflower Today ~ Honey Tomorrow!

        Walking in the garden after the snow has melted is always one of the most beautiful earthy experience I've had...looking for what have survived is always a joy.
