The weather here this weekend was amazing! I spent all Saturday morning tending to my garden and the beautiful flowers that have begun popping up.
I have been planting in the gardens in front of the house since my husband and I started dating and each year a few more flowers come up. This year, however, the garden is finally blooming with enough growth that all that work feels celebrated.
And the best part is, since it has been so long since I have planted, some of the flowers that are coming up for the first time are a complete surprise! Bulbs that I planted two years ago that did not come up last Spring are peeking out with extra radiance. I just love the birth of Spring!
I'm grateful to walk outside this morning and smell the scents of "Easter". I'm grateful to smell the familiar Spring scents being carried on the breeze. I'm grateful to be seeing more and more of the yard greening up and more wildlife emerging to play. I'm grateful for the beautiful weekend temperatures and weather so that I could enjoy the outdoors. And I'm grateful for all the colors emerging in the garden.
What are your favorite scents of Spring? What is your favorite thing about this time of year? How can you bloom some joy in your heart today?
May today bless you with comforting scents. May you have time to pause and enjoy the beauty around you. Have a beautiful day!
