Inspired by a Kelly Hoernig class, Finding Beauty in the Everyday, I try to take photos each day either in my yard or on our walk. Today we walked to a sweet little wilderness park near our neighborhood where I found some beauty to photograph.

Been taking some photos in the garden now that the weather is warming up and things are growing. It was time to put the fairies back in their fairy garden area. Don’t you just love spring?

I was reading Mary Oliver poems and this sentence struck me as being so appropriate for the fleeting beauty of spring tulips.

A painterly look at a few fun birthday additions to the garden. The fairy sculpture, a reading cherub (seated on the pond ledge) and a little bird on the table have joined our garden. The fairy will move to another location once the rains have tapered off. The daffodils have been bringing color and joy for a few weeks now and the tulips are starting to open. Love spring bulbs! The sculpture and cement pieces were found at the Little Red Farm in Springfield, OR. A delightful nursery!

The garden is beginning to awaken. Happy first day of spring! Plant pictured is lungwort. It comes in these lovely shades of pink and also in blues. The blues aren’t quite blooming yet. But these and the Daphne (heavenly scent!) and some of the daffodils are signs that spring is here.
Although the puddles will still be here for a while yet.
