A walk in the National Forest last weekend, on a slightly warmer day, brought me this gift.
I loved seeing their cheerful bobbing heads as we wandered. In a few weeks there will be masses of them, thousands, but now they’ve only just begun this year’s visit.
Just as a bit of added beauty, I’m including this photo from a few weeks back. I turned around and there it was, waiting as if it knew I would want it. This is as close to the divine as I ever feel, when fingers of purity caress our earth.
As the days slowly become longer, brighter, these gifts of nature become more precious and rare. What wonders there are, no matter the season, all around us. We just have to be willing to see; live with our eyes and hearts wide open.
