a wildflower year

Winter and spring rains provided much more green and wildflowers than we’ve had in many years here on the Central Coast of California. They seemed to be popping up overnight, more and more each day.

On this particular morning, it was cold and a bit dreary. That quickly changed to sunshine and blue skies though, as two of my granddaughters and I headed out for a walk.

It’s quite a driveway that we have … not the typical that fits one or two cars. The familiar walk was a fun one for all three of us. The sun was kind of in and out as it hid behind the big clouds overhead. That warmth of the sun and the spectacular view of yellow, pink and purple wildflowers made it a perfectly enjoyable walk.

May your life be like a wildflower
growing freely in the beauty and joy of each day.

We each picked our own bouquet … it was hard not to pick more! If only our hands were bigger!
