Cherish is my favorite word, and I cherish the ability of turning the routine into a beautiful moment.
Nature creates in me, a spiritual and meditative time to bring peace, harmony and balance, into an otherwise ordinary day~

Happy Easter, Happy Spring and a Coopers Hawk Too~

For those of you that celebrate Easter, I hope that your day shall be filled with joy and all of the beauty that the celebration brings to believers world wide.
Spring has arrived in Kentuckiana and it has begun to blossom with beautiful colours and I am so thrilled along with millions of others who are ready to put this past Winter to bed, once and for all. 
This past week, one day, we had a high of 83' and sunshine the next day a drop down to 33' and an inch of snow.
The wild white Dogwoods as well as the Red are in full bloom in the city and out where we are, getting ready to show their lovely faces ;) any day.
The gentleman who lives across the lane, where happens to be for the second year straight, the Red-Shouldered Hawk nest, was by accident deleivered a basket of fresh and lovely posies, to which he gifted them to me. 
He did ring up the florist and they said their mistake, but he could do whatever he wanted with them and well, yes thank you very much Steve, I enjoyed them! 
Thus the beautiful Carnations, Mums, and Star Gazer Lily showing in this post as well.
Last Monday, I was driving into town to visit with Bill's dad, and the Bradford Pear trees along the lane looked like huge snow balls upon the tree tops that adorned the entire lane to his home.
Oh and the American Crow, he just fit into this post nicely and so there he, or she shall stay to help greet you and bring you into a new and wonderful week~
