    2. Life all over, perfect time of the year to celebrate Mother’s Day, a celebration of life.

      Fitting to come right after Easter, a celebration of death 🤔

      Even more so, our given global situation and the season!

      Beautiful! 😄

    1. It is real, Dan. Our back door is open right now and I’m hearing Red Wing Blackbirds’ mating song. I’m glad you stopped by to reinforce the fact that YES Spring is springing!! YAY! Have a great day! xo

    1. I am SOOOOOO happy too, Gigi! Though it is wayyyyy to early for my Peonies to start growing, what is going on in my gardens tells me we really are going to have an early Spring. Last year was miserable with Spring soooooo late. Perhaps Spring is making up for last year by being early this year. YAY!!! xo

    1. Rob, I am having the same problem only with deer. Yesterday I chased a good 7-8 does from our feeders. If I had not, they would have eaten everything. And I thank you on the compliment regarding my images. Bless you for telling me you enjoyed them!! Have a great day! xo

    1. Kamal, it is so exciting to witness again Mother Earth awakening after a cold sleep. The colors are blooming at first ever so slowly but within a short span of time, more will be seen and in abundance. It was wonderful to listen to birds outside today singing. OH! It was glorious!! Many Blessings to you! xo

  1. My goodness Amy, these are beautiful shots! I’ve literally been sitting here at my keyboard smiling. It is such a welcoming and warming feeling in my heart to see these stunning signs of Spring. I enjoy Winter and all of its beauty, but this one has been particularly rough! Plus, we stayed too warm and never got any of that peaceful snow. I did live it vicariously through you though which is always nice 🙂

    It really is amazing how the patterns are happening right now with the weather. We too are seeing signs of life that shouldn’t really been occurring at the moment. Hubby and I cut many acres of grass and it looks as if we will be starting much sooner than anticipated. Wild wild weather!

    All my love to you sweet friend. I’ve missed you! 🤗 Hope you, the cat-kins and the family are all well.

    1. I’m smiling, Holly, knowing now what pleasure you derived viewing my photographs. Thank you so much for telling me! Winter this year was both a huge disappointment with so little snow and very painful for me with the unstable barometer. These signs of Springs have a new bounce in my step and a new glow in my heart!
      As I’ve told several other people, I’m trying to see patterns in this new form of seasons that have been presenting themselves. So far I’ve not had much luck. There just doesn’t seem to be rhyme or reason with the weather patterns.
      All my love back to you! May you and your loved ones all be well and happy!! Much love to you! xo

  2. Same thing over here. My crocuses are in full bloom for about 2 weeks and all the other April bloomers are about to open up. Crazy. Awesome photos. I am amazed by your shots of the birds. But of course, I love the flower pictures too a lot. I like the ones of the surfacing plants. Fantastic!

    1. Thank you so much for the gracious and kind compliments, Erika! I love my camera and what I can do with it. As for the weather, I am lost for words. I’ve been attempting to see some kind of patterns within the chaos but so far, I’m not having a lot of success. Much love to you!! xo

    1. YES!! Someone commented on the BlueJay aka the blur. Thank you, Scott! Oh yes BlueJays are known to be aggressive birds as are the Red Wing Blackbirds. Watching how these birds interact is fascinating! Hope you had a great day!

  3. Oh no, that means…that means…my heat is going, I’m getting Winter! Buried in clothes because of the cold winds, SAD setting in, scrambling for the only tiny spot of sunshine coming in the window. Oh Amy, what will I do? 😂 🤣
    I know, I’ll buy a camera! Distract myself like you do with these amazing pictures of life coming up into that lovely sunshine. Even find a beautiful horse or two to distract me 😀
    And Karma just feels your love dear lady, its an energy like a magnet and can be felt for millions of miles. Being that close you haven’t got a hope of ‘sneaking’ lol 😂 🤣

    1. Ya made me laugh SO hard, Mark. Will be back tomorrow to answer in depth. Just wanted you to know how much I enjoyed your comment especially regarding Karma. I’m laughing as I write this ….. LOL

    2. SO sorry about SAD coming your way. I really find it difficult to believe that in the land of sunshine you could actually experience SAD. That happens in grey with NO sun. I think you exaggerate just a wee bit. LOL
      Now getting a camera sounds like a plan to me. Solid. Go for it and see what you can do. Good luck with those horses. (wink!)
      I’ve given up on trying to sneak up on Karma. She has Amy Radar. LOL I bet it’s my scent. Or it could be her scent on my outer clothes from all the licking I’ve gotten from her. This morning, I received a Karma face wash. LOL I cannot even begin to imagine what she is going to do when I show her more skin then I do with the warmer weather coming our way. She’ll see me as one giant ice cream cone and go into ecstasy with licking me. Too funny!

      1. Who me…exaggerate? Oh alright then, but we do have the occasional cloudy day, about twice a year. And both storms just rumble a lot 😂
        So you have become an ice cream, a licking treat for the summer. What flavor…carrot or apple? lol 🤣
        I can’t wait to see pictures when you give her a wash down in the summer, this will be something to see 😀
        I think you do realise that if Karma’s owner decides that she will sell Karma that you had better get your backyard ready. That comment I made about Karma sitting watching TV with the cats is getting closer to reality miss Amy lol 😂 🤣

      2. I’ve yet to discover what flavor I am, Mark, but to be licked by that huge tongue is something you have to experience in order to understand the full effect. LOL If this licking keeps up, it would seem I will be taking a lot of showers after I meet daily with Karma.
        I just spoke with the owner how filthy Karma is from rolling in the mud. We both know we have to wait until it is very warm because cold water from a hose will have to be used to rinse her off. I can’t wait to wash her though!
        As for our property being appropriate for a horse …. um no. Our lawn would be completely destroyed and our “wild bird sanctuary” I am not willing to bring down in order to put a pasture in. As for the upkeep on a horse …. I’m not a spring chicken, that is all I’m saying. The owner as far as I know is not planning on selling her …. she just arrived this past September. My living room is probably about the right size for a stall for this horse. Just thinking about it makes me laugh!
        Have a great day! It’s sunny here ….. It was supposed to be gym day for me but I’ve chosen camera day! Yippee!! Gotta get out in the sunshine here when we get it. Unlike where you are at I’ll have you know.

      3. Just a thought, all that licking may be because she wants the salt. I think she may be wanting one of those salt/mineral lick blocks (and I think they are flavored, carrot etc). Here is a bit of guff on it. Not that she doesn’t love you too. A least with you she gets the salt AND gets to lavish you with licks lol 😂

      4. Hmmmm …. I thought of this as well, Mark. I’ll bring this subject up with the owner. I will also as an experiment bring a little bit of salt with me tomorrow when I see her to see what she does. She is fed grain twice daily but still the amount of salt in that may not be enough for her. I believe you are on to something ….. THANK YOU!

    1. Thank you, Karen! I haven’t seen you in a while and hope all is good your way. Karma is my special friend who lives next door to me. I wouldn’t have believed what a deep bond that can develop between horse and human until now that I myself am experiencing it. Amazing journey I am on!! SO happy you stopped by to see my first signs of Spring this year!! Much love to you! xo

    1. It seems that way, Eliza. I am stunned at the bird activity and songs I am hearing and how my flowers are actively growing. The buds on our Maple trees are huge! Soon leaves will be showing. I mean this is only March and it looks like April! My Peonies for example, do not show growth until late March at the earliest! New has arrived and I’m really trying to assess to figure out the NEW patterns. *sigh* Not having a whole lot of luck thus far. LOL

      1. Me either! I used to be able to depend on Nature to guide me. That no longer holds true. I feel a bit ungrounded to tell you the truth, as I said, try to gain some perspective on the NEW to figure out the patterns.

    1. Spring is springing here, Julie, much to my amazement. As for my friend, Karma, I love her and she adores me. We exchange kisses and secrets every day. When she first came next door to us she trusted no one. Now to have gained this horse’s trust explicitly humbles me. Her Spirit is truly special. Much love to you, dear friend!! xo

  4. Ya! Spring has sprung! We’ve got lots of daffs in bloom here, crocus up too. Tulips at the ready. Our smaller birds are checking out possible nesting boxes too. Just so happens it’s colder now than it’s been all winter! Probably because it’s sunnier, no cloud blanket today! Lovely photos!! Karma is a beauty!! Much love and have a great weekend!! Love, Donna

    1. Thank you, Donna! Whoever can figure out this weather and its patterns I want to talk to. I’ve yet to see patterns. Here as well yesterday in fact, it was sunny but darn so cold!! I agree with you about Karma. I have fallen hard for this horse! Hope you have a great weekend too. Time has been flying for me …. I’m shocked realizing tomorrow is Saturday. It hasn’t been easy for me to get here to answer comments. Life like Spring is springing and growing! LOL Much love to you! xo

  5. Yep! Spring is springing and I couldn’t be happier to see the snow slowly fade away. I know more will come before all is said and done, but when it does one knows it won’t be around for long with warmer temperatures. Yay!
    The past month without a computer about did me in! Eye opening however because I could see how dependent life has become on technology. There were many alone hours I had to pass creatively or go nuts. It was interesting. I’m glad to be back and able to reconnect with the world.
    Great pix! No buds for me yet, we are still under snow but the crocus will be the first to pop forth as always. I’m ready for color…Spring should be a grand time for you to do photography. The white gets pushed out and the greens begin to emerge! Love it. Hi to Karma….She’ll be happy to see spring! Hugs….VK ❤

    1. Thank you, VK. Good to know your computer problems are behind you. We have all kinds of flowers coming up here. I hope to get a crocus or two open soon so I can show them here. My relationship with Karma is surreal! Have a great Sunday! xo

  6. Lets hope the weather forecasters are correct Amy.. I have known many a year when my daffs are in full bloom for us to then get piles of snow and it batter them down.. But as you say, everything is emerging at once this year…. Same in my garden…
    Loved the pictures Amy and Karma is just gorgeous.. ❤

    1. Oh wow, thank you, Julie!! I love Karma so much …. she is such a special horse and spirit. To me she is such a gift. I hope when the grounds dry up I’ll be able to walk her a bit. The trust between she and me is mind-blowing. Have a great weekend!! xo
