Hi all, hope you had a joyful Easter and that your week is off to a wonderful start. After way too much fun and sugar, I decided to make a long weekend of it and step away to take a breath or two, which is a lovely thing to do this time of year when everything is in bloom. We've been meaning to drive up north to see the tulip fields all month - such a spectacular sight - but so far schedules and weather have nixed any plans...
But, taking the time to slow down a bit revealed that there's no need to go far for a tulip festival. There's one happening right here in our neighborhood. A walk down the block serves up so many happy bright colors and pretty heads bobbing in the sun.
Something as utilitarian as a traffic circle suddenly burst in to a riot of color - a big thanks to whoever planted those bulbs where usually only the most mundane of shrubs hang out.
And just a few blocks away at the corner grocery...
A seemingly endless parade of spring's finery, ready to take home.
How wonderful to find so much beauty and magic in one's everyday world, which is one of the most wonderful things about spring don't you think?
What beauty are you seeing right in your own neighborhood these days?
Happy Wednesday! XOXO

Hopefully a switch in feed services combined with and a new email address will resolve things once and for all.
