A gush of bird-song, a patter of dew, A cloud, and a rainbow’s warning, Suddenly sunshine and perfect blue– An April day in the morning. ― Harriet Prescott Spofford
Oh, April! You were so amazing and full of so many good things: Blue skies, bird-song, bountiful blooms, and even a birthday!
It was a month with the perfect mix of rain and sun. My garden spent the month waking and growing, and blooming! The forsythia provided a riot of yellow flowers, and the lilac seems to have settled in well and was full of blooms! Why, even the “free” Hyacinth had a bloom this year! However, your ending in Michigan was the best!
Things I noticed in March in these pictures and videos – even though there was so much snow, there was also more light and sunshine and blue skies! And, even though there was snow – the birds cheerfully ignored it and their songs greeted me and Sherman on our early morning outings!
And there was sewing, and more sewing, and even a trek to the vet for Sherman (which he loudly suffered through, lol) and even though he hates the vet – he still remained my constant Pilates coach – ever hoping that someday I will be good enough to play with him during my time on the mat!
March moved by so quickly, which I am grateful! And, even though we had some brief flurries on the 31st, they did not stick and we have no more snow in the forecast this week!
February is merely as long as is needed to pass the time until March. ~J.R. Stockton
It has been a long time since I have done any monthly reviews here, but I am trying a new format to go with my “new to me” way to save something special each day. This format is helping me remember to take a picture and record a few seconds to preserve the moments of the day.
Looking back at February, I am struck by two things: how much snow we got and how much sunshine there was!
And when you think about life – it is that finite balance that we might not even be aware of that makes things more tolerable.
And, yes – this month seemed so much more manageable than January, which seemed to drag on forever! February, was indeed just long enough!
