Spring Storms

We had a big spring storm yesterday.
It went from light rain, to heavey rain, to hail and thunder.
And I looked up in the sky to find
a heart shape opening in the clouds

and then there were the swirly waves.
Clouds are always fun
when your imagination can see shapes

Bleeding Hearts in My Garden

Slow down and enjoy life,
It's not only the scenery you miss
by going too fast - you also miss the sense of where

Oh the new wonders of nature that are appearing

everyday with each passing day of spring. I am loving it.....
