The little girl I carried
Is this the little girl I carried?
I don't remember growing older.... when did she?
When did she get to be a beauty?
Wasn't it yesterday when she was so small?
Swiftly flow the days
Seedlings turn overnight to sunflowers
Blossoming even as we gaze
What words of wisdom can I give her?
How can I help to ease her way?
Swiftly fly the years
One season following another
Laden with happiness and tears.

Come take a walk with me around my yard. It's breathing a huge sigh of relief as the warm sun hits the bare ground for the first time in a while. I love the new beginnings.
The Dandelion proudly wins the race to be the first flower to bloom!
Our yard is very wet because of poor landscaping but it really gives a variety of mosses which I find so pretty.
New needles and pine cones are appearing on the Spruce Trees
Beautiful lichen on the dead trees.
Our yard obviously needs a lot of work, but there is so much beauty in the meantime!
The Alberta Wild Rose bushes are growing new shoots.
I can't wait for the lovely smell of those delicate roses.
