Positively Misty

by Mauverneen


Everything seems quieter on a misty morning. Calmer.

Trees are still. Raindrops cling to leaves and flower petals in rows of gleaming crystals.

No wind to shake them off.

Colors are bright, vivid, wet. Brilliant greens. Blacker tree trunks.

The sun is there, but it too is calm, muted. Taking a break as it were.

I feel refreshed. Calmer. No need to rush. I have time.

A Positively Good Morning!

by Mauverneen

"Spring is nature's way of saying let's party!"     - Robin Williams


Spring is colorful. Staring out at gray days and bare trees for months sure does get depressing. But then - spring arrives.


It's not just the flowers popping up that are colorful, but the world. Skies are blue. Grass is green with pops of yellow dandelions. Trees are green and pink and white. And the birds! We have white, blue, red, orange, yellow - as colorful as the flowers at the garden center.


Do we ever get as tired of color as we do the gray landscapes of winter? Doubtful. We may yearn for the beach or the mountains or the lake, but take a minute and look around. The earth is happy - it's spring and Mother Nature is dipping into her paintbox once again!

"The day the Lord created hope was probably the same day he created Spring."   - Bernard Williams

Positively May Day

by Mauverneen

“At last came the golden month of the wild folk-- honey-sweet May, when the birds come back, and the flowers come out, and the air is full of the sunrise scents and songs of the dawning year.”
                                                                                                            ― Samuel Scoville Jr., Wild Folk


Exactly! Happy May Day!
     Traditionally the day to celebrate Spring, and in some cultures, a holiday.
Birds are singing, and migrating. The Juncos have finally moved on, the Finches are moving in and yesterday I saw a pair of Rose-breasted Grosbeaks at the feeder. 

Today, at least in my little corner of the world, Mother Nature is cooperating with a sunny, warm, morning. A day that is what all days should be - a day without a coat. It's always liberating when I walk out of the door and realize, I don't need a coat! and I think that's how life was meant to be lived. Unwrapped.

Ahhh spring. We've been waiting.
