Etceteras: pausing for spring

Pin It

It's Memorial Day here in the United States. A day that we remember the men and women who died while serving our country.
 Since it's a holiday here, I thought I'd share some pictures and pause to reflect on the day and enjoy the season.

I was noticing {and thoroughly enjoying} the sprinkling of summer projects that I’m starting to see around the various blogs and creative sites. Shell, nautical and beachy creativity is always so inspiring.

Even though Memorial Day is also considered the unofficial start of summer, I thought I should take time to enjoy spring. Here are some of the pictures from my yard that I snapped that say spring to me.

Bursts of color like these blue flowers are always a welcome sight after winter.

A ladybug enjoying the afternoon sun in one of my succulents.

Bright red geraniums make me happy.

Nothing says spring like butterflies in your garden.

Hip hip hooray! My first tomato!

Lemon buds… hopefully a bounty of lemons will follow.

I hope you're enjoying the beauty of spring. Thanks for visiting.
