At long last, spring is here! I know, technically speaking it happened about ten days ago but with the crazy weather we’ve been having, who noticed? Aside from marking off another day on the calendar, it might as well still have been winter. Each day I get out of bed and look outside to a world of white, well, it makes me want to break out in tears. Don’t worry though, a few deep breaths later and I’m fine and ready to face the day.
But finally, I think Mother Nature is starting to catch up with us and play nice. Today, at least, the sun is shining and although the furnace is running as I type this little blog post, it’s actually not too bad outside. I wouldn’t suggest going for a walk without the winter coat just yet but I do believe that those days are coming soon. Saturday I even took a moment to fill the bird feeder with fresh seed for the multitude of birds that seem to have suddenly made an appearance. And of course, let’s not forget the daffodils. They have sprouted and I do believe that we will see flowers soon.
Hurray! In the meantime, I leave you with this photo which I took last month at Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens. Without a doubt, I am dangerous being set free amongst all those gorgeous flowers with a camera. After all … you know me and flowers… This is one of so many photos that I took that day. Perhaps I will share a new one with every spring post I write.
Speaking of writing, this blog has been abandoned long enough and it’s about time that I renew my efforts to post. I’ve been writing a lot lately. I just don’t seem to take the time to talk about it. (Well, maybe that’s not such a bad thing.) But I would like to begin making an effort to post regularly no matter what we happen to discuss along the way.
For starters, I want to start a “Friday Feature” blog post where I will highlight some of my fellow authors. If you have a new release, I’m happy to help spread the word. Just want to connect with new readers? Give me a shout. Right now, my calendar is completely open but contact me if you are interested in being featured or interviewed and we’ll work something out. Thanks for helping. 🙂
