March Madness

No my dear friends, I’m not talking about basketball, but instead about the energies that we find here lately. Yesterday was a very windy day and it has continued today. A polar vortex in our area has arrived even though just last week we had mild spring-like temperatures. However, as you well know, March can be a tricky month weather-wise. My Mom was famous for saying, “March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb.” Have you heard that saying too?

I’m noticing a lot of people are on edge as well these days. The unrest world-wide with all that’s swirling doesn’t make it easy to navigate as there’s a lot to take in, a lot to process and many people are just plain tired. I hope that you’ve all been doing well. I haven’t been writing here lately and I miss you.

Daffodils always remind me of my Mom as she had them in the middle of the kitchen table (from her garden) during my birthday month. Those bright happy flowers never cease to make me smile when I think of her. Do you have any flowers that remind you of someone special?

Shine On!

  1. I grew up in Ohio…my father loved and grew many plants and flowers. So many of them remind me of him…lilacs, tulips, crocuses, daffodils, roses, Sweet Williams, forsythia, irises and many more. Peace roses were my mom’s and sister’s favorites, and those beautiful roses and their perfume will always remind me of the two of them. Thx for reminding me❤️

    • Thank you for sharing! What a beautiful fragrant array of flowers! As I read through the lovely list, I could imagine each one so thank you for reminding me of the beauty in all of Mother Nature’s gifts! ❤️

  2. It is a little crazy at the moment, we have been hit very heavy with much rain and flooding down here for the 3rd time in 12 months. A lot of damage to houses, roads and infrastructure, A huge drought followed by fires and now this. Now don’t get me wrong, this is a hard country…but just maybe we are being asked to appreciate it a little more. We’ve chopped down so many tree’s we’ve probably altered our climate so much that this is the beginning of something that we can heal. Tree planting and lots of it, get those micro climates back up and joined into something bigger. And then do that for ourselves. Great post dear lady, and very glad to hear your voice. And may your hearts micro climate be balanced too 😂 🤣 ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋

    • Thank you so much Mark! I hope you’re doing well and that the climate changes ease so that Mother Nature is appeased and humanity can properly behave. I hope you’re staying safe and healthy. Sending hugs 🥰

      • Thank you kind lady, hugs and blessings gratefully received and I hope you are well also ❤️ I think I am growing gills at the moment with all this rain, but it will start one of those ‘looks’ we go through every few years 😂 🤣 ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋

  4. My father was very fond of yellow roses and they always remind me of him. My great-aunt loved miniature roses (fitting for such a tiny, petite lady), and I would like to grow some one day, just for her memory.

    • Thanks Karel for sharing with me! I love yellow roses as well as miniature roses! I hope you do plant some in memory of your great aunt! What a lovely tribute!
