Wordless Wednesday, Mellow Yellow Monday and Macros: Signs of Spring on the Prairie
Thankfully, my optimism the past few weeks has given me strength to make it mentally to this week, when suddenly the world is bursting with signs of Spring.
Since looking at other blogs showing signs of Spring have helped keep me focused, I thought I would share some I have taken and add to a few Photo Challenges:
The parks doing "controlled burns" everywhere I look (not going to state my opinion on this as it is a new idea to me)...

We managed to go out and enjoy several walks this week. We have been listening to frogs croaking away in every single small pond possible, woodpeckers letting the sounds of their excavations in trees echo through the woods and across the prairies, deer nibbling at new shoots, birds singing in the morning starting at around 4:30 am, insects flying around our heads as we hike on the trails, and the whole world filled with new life while I think of my Babcia in Poland the past few weeks. We have been wondering how best to care for her in her older age, so the rebirth has been very uplifting and sorely needed for me lately.
I hope you all manage to go outside this week and enjoy the Spring.
Also, my photo of two daffodils backlit are for the Simplicity Photo Challenge...
