Our little valley is beautiful in every season but never more than spring.
And this year seems the best of all.
Every square foot is jam packed with miracles.
Even a simple path to a farm house shines.
Tulips and daffodils in splendid brilliance that goes all the way to the horizon, looking for all the world like a travel brochure come to life.
That lush, lush shade of green seen only in spring.
Barns and flowering branches.
You can't take a single step without seeing something amazing...
even the dewy grass is beautiful.
I am so thankful for the place I live,
rich with color and beauty,
especially in springtime,
seen from a bicycle as you pedal with a dear friend,
laughing down the lanes, painting for hours in garden and fields
and making memories you'll cling to long after the blossoms have gone.
