These photos are pretty old now, but they're already uploaded so why not share them? This was from a walk with my mom way back in April, when the spring bulbs and flowers were just beginning to bloom. I love just walking around the neighborhood and pausing to observe all the beauty of unfurling buds and blossoms. Ordinary, but memorable, the little routines and traditions we create that become regular parts of our days, months and years. A simple 20 minute walk becomes a lovely memory of stopping to smell the proverbial roses (or tulips).
