I went on a walk this afternoon to look for signs hope during this time of uncertainty. Just getting out of the house, the isolation, and the feeling that I exist in a world of one, was my motivation. Plus, trying to get to those 10,000 steps. It is not hard to find beauty in the determination of the flowers to bloom and display their unique colors, shapes and beauty leading up to Spring. A simple walk can lead to so many discoveries. My little neighborhood is filled with beauty, so when I walked out of my house looking for signs of hope, I was lucky enough to find all of these signs of the natural beauty in our world. It gave me a little hope on a somewhat sad and stressful day.
This beautiful view of the valley, the mountains and peeks of snow in the far right.
Here is a wide view with even more snow tipped mountains.
This little flower was peeking out in a succulent patch.
This is my favorite flowering bush, the Echium (Pride of Madeira)
The succulents are showing their happiness after days of rain.
A red rose stretching up, beginning to open.
These calla lilies are so beautiful and lush. It’s rare to see so many together.
There are so many daisies!
These soft, billowy clouds floating by against a turquoise sky.
The first sign of Spring and a spot for happy bees (zoom in).
Back home and the jasmine is in bloom sending its sweet scent around my house.
Ahhhh, the view from my porch never gets old.
Lavender at home. The scent, the wisps, more happy bees!
Tiny blooms sending out shoots.
Everything is blooming!
Forever roses, climbing, blooming, reaching across the arbor.
The sage is growing so tall!
These beauties on my porch are reaching for the sun.
My first poppy! It’s barely opened, but it is the first this Spring.
