Recently I drew and painted this picures: Happy Snail Celebrates the Seasons. (You might also like this Happy Snail post: Happy Snail’s Magic Motto.)
It’s a good reminder to me because it’s easy to get lost in our day-to-day activities and forget to notice the change in seasons and the gifts they bring.
I have been spending time outside more throughout all the seasons. As I do, I am increasingly excited about these gifts.
I was looking through some of my pictures from the last year, and I thought I would show you some of the gifts all the seasons of this year brought me.
So, I will start with Spring of last year.
I love spring walks when it has rained and the air feels fresh and clean.
And eating colorful vegetables in the spring always is fabulous. I feel joy at the color and freshness.
I love it when the tress and bushes bust out into exuberant foliage. This is clearly a sign of Nature rejoices after her winter slumber.
And being able to wear sandals and skorts after bundling up all winter is a sweet liberation.
Also, I get to see my favorite tree friends on a regular basis.
And visitors come to my yard–I’m always ecstatic.
I love cool, fresh morning walks.
And the sun sparkling over the grass.
I love little friends I meet on walks.
And lush, summer foliage.
I love the light that frames sparkling water.
And flowers bursting in color.
I love summer fruit.
Autumn is my favorite season.
It’s so brilliantly gorgeous, I can barely stand it.
I love the leaf carpets it creates in forests.
And the weirdly beautiful produce it brings. I learned to make squash gratin this year!
We’ve already gotten two snows this winter!
Grateful and Excited
I am so grateful for all the gifts the seasons brought me this year. And I can’t wait to see what gifts it brings this year!
