Each day the flowering of plants and trees changes the landscape in subtle and sudden ways. Spring itself is opening up around us here and it is simply glorious. This morning, as I drove down Williams Road, I noticed the magnolia, burst in white flowers, layering soft, darker trees. When I stopped at the coffee shop the scent of it was lightly on everything. On mornings like this is best to just surrender to the amazement and wonder at it all and move through the day in a state of grace.
