The camellias are in full bloom just now. I appreciate the beauty of the fallen flowers on the ground also.
We have had some very dark overcast days lately but today...it was one of those days...how can I describe it to you...it was incredibly beautiful, truly it was. Not a cloud in the sky and the temperature was in the mid 70's. May I say it was perfect? It was!
I saw my first butterfly today! I looked it up to make sure that I wasn't dreaming...it was a Spring Azure and from my reading, it said that it is a tiny butterfly (it was) and that it is blue but when it lands, the underside of the wings are white, so therefore- it then looks white. It is very common in the USA and is one of the very first to emerge in the Spring and heralds the start of the season. Pleased to see it? You bet!
When we walk, we love to notice the early Spring wildflowers and it it is such a joy to spot them.
If you notice, the photos that I have shared with you today are from this date from the past three years. I didn't take any photos so I realized that I could just go back in time and show you these!
Romance. If you look it up, it says this:
1- A feeling of excitement and mystery associated with love.
2- A quality or feeling of mystery, excitement, and remoteness from everyday life. "The beauty and romance of the night".
So, there is the title of this post but rather, I am thinking of the new season upon us now.
"The beauty and romance of Spring."
What song for you? Why, there can only be one! "Romance".
I do hope that I can convince my dear husband to perform this one day on his guitar for you. The video that I am sharing here sounds so very MUCH like Richard except...Richard is better. I promise.
It is a lovely song but can you believe it, no one really knows who actually wrote it.
Hope you love it as much as I do.
