natural beauty

Happy Earth Day, friends. Since this tree-hugging "holiday" falls in the spring, I wanted to share one of my favorite things about this time of year (besides the weather getting warmer): flowers. The saying goes 'April showers bring May flowers,' but I've already seen the beautiful bursts of color popping up in landscapes around town.

My favorite: lilac. There is a very large, tree-sized bush of them in front of the library where I take my Tuesday night class, and it's perfect. I could stand in its presence just sniffing the air for hours. It's amazing how much your favorite scent and simple, natural beauty can make your day.
