For the next several weeks I’ll be out of town, first meeting realtors and getting general information for our upcoming move, then visiting our daughter and son-in-law in southern California. I won’t be able to visit and comment as often as usual, but I’ll do my best. What I’ll be doing here is featuring a photo each day from McDowell Forest Preserve in Naperville, Illinois, “my” park. Please feel free to comment (I’ll certainly respond) and enjoy the beauty of this special place.

Many spring flowers are a bit shy, hiding among leaves, in the shade, a/o with pale colors. Grape hyacinths flaunt their beautiful purple without shame, brightening everyone’s day. The ones in our garden have spread over the years, making spring a vividly beautiful time.

I’m going to be taking a short break, returning mid-week next week. Where has the month gone? I wanted to leave you with something beautiful and I think this shy violet, cast into the spotlight despite trying to hide, is the perfect thing. Enjoy!

Thursday was the first real day of spring:  temperatures climbing to a bit of 70 F, first day without a coat/jacket needed, sunshine all day…and this little beauty discovered under a bush in our front  yard.  Thankfully, all our daffodils/narcissus seem to have survived the many nights of below-freezing temperatures and are either already blooming or getting ready to do so.  We may have a few more cold days before temperatures settle into the mid-fifties during the day, spring weather and so welcome!

Debbie hosts Six-Word Saturday every week and these six words made me happier to write than perhaps any I’ve used to far.
