Early Spring Messenger


This photo was taken on February 17, 2017 at 11:57 AM.

The location was in the front yard of my home in Bethesda Maryland.

The "Take It!" was from having taken pictures of this tiny flower in years gone by at this same time of year, for some reason there is an urgency this year to have it be the Spring Star and have full banner and card presence. The pale blue with the yellow center matched up with the dormant grass is always a welcome sign that Spring is on its way.

The After Take: It seems I am slowing down somewhat, and surprisingly as a result, getting more accomplished. I attribute this altered approach to having gotten over (with a Doctor's help) a breathing difficulty which was a constant bother. Funny how we have to breathe all the time - lol. When there is interference with this, it brings a new appreciation for this part of our life system that is ever so important. I thankfully am on a new program of awareness that has me breathing free and clear and without medication as an assist.  There is much to be grateful for.

Thanks for getting right down with me to savor this little flower (perhaps two inches from ground to top) and listening to my clear breathing saga.

Wishing each of you a grand Spring, as it is one of our most wonderful seasons.

    Spring is definitely my favorite season. Mainly because by the time it rolls around I'm ready for winter to be over with.

    Wonder if this little guy made it through that winter storm you all just had. Did your area get some snow?

    Very pretty flower. I too experienced the same thing, when I slowed myself down I began to notice I was getting more done and my mind was clearer.
