The DH (dear hubby) and I went for a walk yesterday, to see what's stirring in the garden and in nature. We stopped by this rock to have tea (herbal) from a thermos. It's a special secret place, at least to me. It's visible to anyone that happens by, but it takes a bit of time to truly see it.
Do you have these special secret places in your life? I have many of them! A particular corner in the library, a bench downtown tucked away under a tree. These places invite us to stop rushing and to look around us.
We also spied daffodils poking their green fronds from the earth. My Midwestern sense of time is amazed by this, so early! The DH says it could be that he planted these daffodils too shallow. Regardless, I'm impressed that they're here to celebrate the new year with us.
