Sunshine Discovered

"Flowers always make people better, happier, and more helpful; they are sunshine, food and medicine for the soul."
~Luther Burbank

Take a walk through our lawn with me, won't you?
I just made a cup of green tea and I'd be more than happy to brew one for you, too.

We'll stroll and shuffle our feet and gaze upon the new blossoms, chatting about the lovely, vibrant colors and the softness of the petals. 

We'll pause to sip our tea, savoring the flavors of fruit and chamomile. And then, before we know it, we'll find ourselves investigating something else- remarking, perhaps, on the yellowish hue or the subtle details that comprise a primrose.

I bet we find ourselves saying that if we could have it our ways, the forsythia would bloom all summer.  After all, it's so darn pretty.

Why, we'll most likely remark about the weather and how glad we are that the sun has decided to emerge.  
We'll comment on how the winter was insanely mild.  And, if we're honest with ourselves, we'll also talk about how much we missed a good old-fashioned, honest-to-goodness blizzard.

All the while, a little puppy will play at our feet.  We'll see squirrels zig-zag across the lawn, over the fence and up the trees.  Robbins will peck at the damp ground and work to gather nesting supplies.

All around us life will emanate.
