On the Bright Side

I’m usually an optimist, and depressing is just not my style.  Sure, times are hard, but walking outside and taking in all the beauty around me makes me smile.

More daffodils are opening.

I can imagine what this patch will look like in full bloom.

The spinach that overwintered is starting to grow again, and the bright green leaves are a welcome sight in my mostly empty garden.

A johnny jump-up that seeded itself in my flower garden.  Walking by and spotting this little guy made my day.

What simple things make you smile?

Sign of Spring!

After all the snow melted during this week’s warm weather, I was so excited to see that my daffodils are starting to push up through the muddy soil and leaf litter!  Spotting them today is the perfect beginning to my February vacation.
