Creative Notes: Flowers and Time

that will bloom
here too
in time

During the years I drove to Milwaukee to help with my mother’s care, I saw many flowers bloom there, and later here. The drive back and forth was interesting and beautiful.

I am grateful I can observe in so many ways . . .

and I am then more sure as I write about what I see. Nice to be able to look back at posts and remember dates, from year to year.

And here, we will see flowers in town and other nearby places, before by Lake Michigan. Spring takes time, and then stays for a time.

From May 2014:

Very grateful for this beauty all year!
And always the light to observe.
