Forget-me-not

I love spring and although it’s been taking awhile here in Southern Ontario for spring to arrive in it’s fullness, the evidence is now clear; forget-me-nots, bluebells and daffodils  are blooming in the forest.

    Did you walk the length of the log to challenge your balance? I expect you could do so easily.

  3. I too consider walking and breathing as gifts, because they can be taken away in an instant. The greatest joy of life, is appreciating life’s value. Without that, it will take tons to bring pleasure. On the flip-side, a sunset is considered magical, when you have a great appreciation for life.

      How right you are, my dear Gentleman! There is so much we take for granted, it’s good to enjoy the simple pleasures and appreciate little things; we often overlook the beauty all around us.

      Stop to smell the roses, stop to look at the clouds, count our blessings and be grateful for life!

      Have a blessed weekend!

    Just lovely photos and location. It’s not blooming that much here yet…just starting to show a bit of green.

    You are right, it is a gift just to breathe and walk.

    That lovely post, Carmen. Some beautiful photos of a wonderful place. Beautiful scenery, with colors exploding in the early spring. Canada, seems a natural paradise, with beautiful rivers, forests, mountains, perfect for country living. Although your winter is so raw, it’s a place to dream.
    You look beautiful with your capri, a black beanie and your red sandals, and a look that invites us to enjoy hikes, for your forest. A wonderful landscape and a beautiful woman, a great post.

    Wow it is a sea of blue in your forest, how beautiful. Is it already warm enough for no socks there? We have rain and really cool again, so the knitted dress comes out again 🙂
    I so love Spring too and all new precious life!

      We’ve had some warmer days, but also cool and rainy days. No, it is not quite warm enough, but I have worn sandals twice, my feet need fresh air after being cooped up all winter 😉

      Hope things are warming up for you!
