Nature's spring smile

trees haloed in pink

sweet fragrances tease the air

luminous moments

  13. Eugenia,

    I don’t know about pink haloing the trees but I did spy a red bud in our backyard beginning to show. I haven’t been out except to get the mail or take the trash to the curb for the past couple of weeks so I’m not sure what the great big world behind my yard holds. I will get a break today as I venture out to see my neurologist. ๐Ÿ™‚ Be safe and healthy, my dear. xx

    • There is a tree outside our balcony that is covered in pink buds. In a couple of days, it will be glorious. I’ll try to get a decent photo with my phone. I don’t have a big girl camera! ๐Ÿ˜„ Stay safe and well.
