Nature's beauty -- the antidote

My husband saw his first robins today, and so did the school
crossing guard, around the corner from our house!  Which
means spring is coming.  I saw my first snowdrops in a neighbour's

The news is grim.  Everyone is conscious of the worry about
the Coronavirus.  Shelves at the grocery stores we normally
visit are getting cleaned out.  But outside the day was so
beautiful that I had my breakfast sitting on our back porch in
the sun!  On March 9! Of course that's too warm for early March,
but people out walking in the brilliant day were so happy.

So as well as washing our hands, not touching our
faces, doing our work, eating properly and getting enough
sleep, I think it's important to get out into nature and enjoy
what this beautiful planet has to offer.

Have a loving your day day.
