The Lady Slipper waits patiently at the edge of the field for the royal court of nature to begin its celebration of spring. It is a ritual that happens time and time again, often going unnoticed. Many people do many positive acts of kindness in life, often going unnoticed.

Sometimes one’s day does not go as planned, as mine did when I found myself half way up the mountain stuck in the mud. After a couple of days of trying, the vehicle is home safe again. It was a lesson that patience and trust and a positive approach to life can move you forward again.

The sweet smells from the blossoms on the apple trees permeate the air in the orchard. It is a time of beauty. Being there can help smooth the stresses of the world away. Wherever you are, when you are stressed, stop and imagine the sweet smells you love.

I am constantly amazed at the incredible experiences I have when I venture out into nature. The views of the valley and mountains to the north and west are never the same. Nature has taught me to be aware that life is constantly amazing no matter where you are.

Almost anywhere you look here in the valley, you can see something in bloom. It is a spectacular time of year. It is inspiring. The landscape is soft and peaceful. It is a special time to feel grateful for the magic of the season. May you bloom today.

The other day my wife was given a beautiful gift from Mother Nature. There, under an old pear tree, down by the stone wall, was a Jack-in-the-Pulpit. In all the years we have owned our property we have never seen one before. With gratitude we now watch over this special gift.
