It is such a pleasure to watch the changes in our garden as the days go by.  I think it’s so important to see the beauty, to appreciate the incremental changes, and to realize that – for most of us – life goes on as our Winter turns into Spring.

Also, I did not realize that our peonies (in the last photo) are so ugly at this time of year?!

S’en sortir sans sortir.  

Posted by a French family member on Facebook, it means getting oneself out (implied is ‘out of a difficult situation’) without getting out (out of the house).


Signs of Spring amidst a global pandemic.  I find myself seeking out beauty (however small) to stay positive during these dark days.  March 2020.


Reading the Smith College alumnae magazine, and I came across this acronym.  OMEB – Ordinary Moments of Extraordinary Bliss.  I love it, and I’m going to spread the word (literally).
