Hope springs…Spring!

With apologies to my dear friends in the frozen tundra, I present to you, the first cheery signs of spring around here!

Look! My little Christmas cactus has bloomed.

Isn’t it precious? The flower is so delicate, and there are two more buds ready to bloom.

This is joy. Simple. Free. Easy.

341 The beauty of the universe: The order and harmony of the created world results from the diversity of beings and from the relationships which exist among them. Man discovers them progressively as the laws of nature. They call forth the admiration of scholars. The beauty of creation reflects the infinite beauty of the Creator and ought to inspire the respect and submission of man’s intellect and will. ~ from the Catechism of the Catholic Church
