...little packets of light...

these are little packets of light
& you need to plant them
early in the year
& remember to mark where 
they were because
lots of times they look like weeds in the beginning
& and its not until later you see
how beautiful they really are.

the sun shone.
a brilliant light yesterday.
so camera in hand.
to capture shadows.
light snowflakes today.
spring is trying.
but mother nature.
apparently has some winter left.
in her vase.
join us.
just BE.

The pine cone invites me to reflect on the seeds that might be ready to germinate in my own life. Thank you, Robin.

Little swirls of curls make my lips turn upwards.

The miracle of Spring is shown as nature of the past is unearthed as the snow melts. The seasonal change is upon us even as snow is still in the air. The warmth will arrive soon as we have been ready for the season...for months! Hope Western MI is spared the worst of a late winter...

Love the idea of "little packets of light". I really like the perspective from which you took the pine cone shot, too. Very creative.

Yes, getting teased with Spring is almost more cruel than winter itself. Love the little robin. Me and the girls look forward to spotting the robins come Spring almost as much as the daffodils.
