February morning in the garden

When it happens to you....it is magic
the faithful return of the daffodils
..the morning sun warming their green

This fellow greets me every time I walk in the garden
always smiling...rain or shine or snow
as does the real sun
faithful

I love moss...
have I told you that I love moss?



I always get a chuckle when I walk in the morning and see
who was there overnight ..walking in the garden
and I thought I didn't have any rabbits..huh!


ah..a spirit rock..that I missed
poor fella had to spend the winter in the cold

I have to admit that I will miss the bare branches of the white oak
Don't tell him..but he's getting a trimming this year


Do you stop and feel joy 
when you happen upon footprints in the snow?
man and rabbit.....as it is in life this day
we travel paths others have traveled
all the time
think of this when you step
who has been here before me
whose spirit passed this way?


Oh lordie, I just found this squirrel nest this morning
buggers!
tucked  way up high in the white pine
I'll be watching it for little ears

pachysandra...even winter yields to it

I heard chattering
oh someone, sitting on the neighbor's playhouse
right below the nest that I just discovered
hee hee

oh , glorious morning light
hello Lord



The garden
a place of communion this morning

  6. Suz, I am in LOVE with your 'spirit rocks' I must must must have one or ten---any idea where I can purchase one? And your big beautiful sun face---oh I'm as green with envy as your moss is green. ;D I so enjoy strolling through your garden with you each morning, checking out who was checking each nook and cranny for a treasure in the night. :) Hugs and love, light and space.
