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~

A New Dawn Danced Along the Treeline of the Grove~



Two weeks ago we had a nice snowfall, producing beauty all around us.  This past week, we have had summer like temperatures in the eighties!  It was certainly a very mild winter, and with spring now upon us, it seems like summer stepped in already~



The beautiful Norway Spruce sits quietly just across the lane from me and I can enjoy the beauty, looking out my kitchen window~


The large tree in the middle is the tree, is just outside my living room window and it is where 6 years ago the Red-Shouldered hawks placed their nest, and every year I hope they return, but not yet ;(~
 


 The sunrise brought a sunny glow to Tingsgrove and it was glorious~
 


 This was all that I could see of the sun, as it rose from the east, looking onto Tingsgrove from my great room window~
 
 
 


 Bill placed a fence around our 2 acres 32 years ago and this old post has seen better days, but I love the way it has weathered  many storms and still remains~


 Lastly, but not least is my favorite image from the morning, just 2 brief weeks ago.  The sunlight coming from the east,  as I looked to the west and watched a new dawn dance along the treeline of the grove.  It was spectacular too~

  6. Your snowy pictures have something of a magical quality to them; they are so beautiful and I see what you mean about the light in your favourite image. Given it's about 25 degrees Celsius today, it funny to think there was snow here such a short while ago.
