Promise in the air

As Nature awakens from winter’s slumber, Hope accompanies her. Who can fail to embrace the signs that herald brighter days. As bees gather pollen, buds open, revealing their golden centre as the mimosa stands ablaze, “I am optimism”.

    Hooray for Spring! Beautiful wattle – or is it Mimosa there? Enjoy! 🙂

  2. Thank you, yes, Mimosa (yet I think of the wattle babies!). It is so liberating embracing the warmth and scents of spring after such a cold winter xxxx
