BLOOMIN’ MAY!

One can’t help but stop and smell the flowers and blossoms, these days.

BLOSSOMS!
BLOSSOMS!

Blooms in many colours and sizes have transformed the former bleak landscape into a renewed rainbow of  shades — green, yellow, pink, purple, red, orange.

However, the night-time temperatures are interfering with total garden bliss as they are falling drastically close to freezing. Not to worry, we are taking precautions in this neighbourhood with plant covers or a move indoors.

Perennials and herbs are awakening from their long winter’s nap with the promise of pretty flowers and fresh tastes for summer dishes. Lovage returns, faithfully, each year. Its bright green leaves add an early dash of colour to the garden and the leaves add a celery-like taste to soups.

Enjoy  the wonders of spring!

PEACE–ONLY IMAGINED?

Today, there is an international focus on peace.

IMAGINE
IMAGINE

Songs and symbols give us so many representations of this state of being in our world. John Lennon’s Imagine is only one of them but his words have stayed with us as we grasp at that elusive peace.

I can only surmise what it would look like. Would it look like this rainbow that I caught in a photo at the amazing Niagara Falls shared by Canada and United States? I wonder.

There are patches of peace all around us.

Let’s hope they can spread.

Just imagine!
