Live Life

Hello, I'm hoping you are finding happiness in the Spring work that has involved us all.  I've basically sworn off other social media lately, because I've found it too politically oriented, and it leaves me exhausted. We have a sad situation on our hands here in Minnesota, but the path taken is a failure, and I'll have no part in it. So I'm just posting photos that I think might enlighten, and hope you are all doing well. I feel almost obligated to post this photo of one of my flowering crab trees, because it has always been an inspiration to me over the years. It isn't quite so spectacular this year due to the March thaw and re-freeze, but I still love it.

Awhile back this beautiful Lanium  ( Lamb's Ear) started blooming and I think it is really nice. Not everything has to be dramatic, and I would call this a subtle addition to my daily life. I'm thankful I planted it two or three years ago.

Ok, so now I will just say that without these glimpses of life and the other experiences that I have everyday on this desolate farm where I live, I don't know what I would do. I will never solve the world's problems. But the love of nature and friendliness with all people comes close to being the answer. I would advise you to stay off other social media for the coming month, as I have decided, post positively, love your family, and sleep well every night. Leave the negative aside, be kind. That's what  these cowslips mean to me...kindness.

My little Big Boy Byron wishes you the same. He's "tumble roasted, jumbo salted", just as the box says.

I hope you appreciate all the "beings" around you, whether they be spouses, children, parents, or even the little creatures that depend on you. You'll never regret it. Have a blessed and beautiful Summer.
