Nurturing Thursday 11 ~ Me and my shadow!

The weather has been lamentable this year, with temperatures so close to zero that I began to think we were entering another Ice Age.

Until today.

The sun has been out since daybreak and, at 7.36 pm it’s brilliance is just fading. The wind’s still strong but bearable, even without thermal clothing. Lets hope this warmer trend continues ~ kick~starting the growing season and thawing our frozen spirits.

Spring is in the air, so my midday walk with Indie was a total pleasure. Swaddled in multiple layers and sporting appropriate footwear, I always enjoy the experience, once I’m out there. But it’s so much more uplifting when the skies are blue and passers~by are smiling. 🙂

For the first time this year I noticed positive signs that Nature is awakening ~ forget~me~nots beside the path…..vibrant butterflies…..and sunlight bright enough to cast my shadow!
