Busy Bee

I seem to be obsessed

By all the colors of Spring

Bee in my bonnet

I can be found snapping pics

In random neighbor’s yards

Today it was so nice out again I just had to take a walk down the block to check out all the neighborhood yards to see how much Spring growth had appeared.

Well I was pleasantly rewarded as one neighbor had an abundance of vibrant

crocus blooming. The bees and I were happy and one even paused for a pic😊

A spring in my step

On pink and white pathways

Cherry blossom time

My daughter’s cherry tree was in full bloom today! So pretty! So uplifting to see!

The Waiting

Christmas Bags of Gifts

After Thanksgiving

It all began happening

Planning, purchasing

Decorating and wrapping

Now we sit and wait for morn

Tanka

Our family is having our Christmas tomorrow morning because that’s the only time everyone can get together at once.

Presents are wrapped, cookies are baked, and I’m ready to go!

Tonight I am just resting, watching Christmas movies, nibbling on a few cookies, and waiting for morning 😊

Autumn’s Bio

Painted leaves, Autumn leaf lady
“Miss Autumn” leaf art by LeonasDesigns

I am Miss Autumn

Dressed in vibrant colors

Creating crisp brisk breezes

Inviting leaves to dance

As maple trees clap

Their red and golden appendages

Beneath cloudy skies

And furry grey squirrels scamper

To gather the oak’s treasures
