Fabulous pansies rule!

This is after all the Month of Good Cheer in my lexicon.
That means it's vital to hold on to what makes you
happy.  Looking out the window now at the world
turning green, the lush tulips Steven planted, and
the glorious clouds every day, I am happy.

The other day Steven and I went down to Cherry
Beach, and I couldn't get a good photo of the hundreds
of swallows swooping and flying up over the water
catching what seemed like a healthy crop of bugs.
But it was miraculous to see.  So inspiring.

Maybe we all need to be out in nature more, to see
what we'd be losing if we don't set our sights on making
sure we save the beauty all around us.  In my case
the immediate beauty, made more immediate because
it can come inside, is the beauty of pansies.  So here
are some more for you. It has been such a delight painting

Have a saving the planet day.
