Spring Promises

When the world news, or the news of the economy become too much to process we need to find other sources of news. In ancient times most people could read the signs of the times in nature. Life is more complicated now, and furry catepillers are no longer as important newsagents as they used to be. But that does not mean we should stop looking at those small signs around us. Over the long Easter weekend we took a couple of walks in local state parks. Of course I brought my camera, and what a difference a week makes. It's wonderful to see daffodils and forsythia blooming in gardens but how delightful to see the tiny offerings mother nature produces on her own. Don't forget to stop and look at the world around you, some of the greatest pleasures in life are free and just waiting for you to find them. Where do you find beauty, where do you look to find hope for the future?

Here are some of the signs of hope and beauty I found this weekend...
