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~

This gentle one was simply resting and enjoying the new found ivy bed without the cloak of snow~

Mourning Doves are some of our favorite visitors and they are a plenty. Sometimes, I can enter the side garden and as many as twenty, or more will flush up into the air. This gentle one was simply resting and enjoying the new found ivy bed without the cloak of snow. Warmth has come a wee bit to the grove and every day we anticipate the arrival of spring, though we know that winter has not yet left us, we get these welcome teases~
