Taking time to enjoy

I hope you had a wonderful weekend. The weather was glorious here in Texas so I was able to get outdoors to enjoy nature.
As most of you probably know, I have several lemon trees and I mentioned the other day that they are loaded with blooms.
See all the blooms. I hope to have plenty of lemons a little later in the year. I can see pies, breads and pitchers of sweet lemonade in my future.

Have you ever had the wonderful feeling of smelling the sweet aroma of the lemon blossoms? Well, it is divine. Taking in the sweet smell makes every thing seem fresh....so alive and new. It's so calming to me.

Look what I spotted when I was enjoying myself. Honey bees, there were quite a few of them buzzing from bloom to bloom.
  What a super busy bee this one was going all around.
 Just look at that pollen covered face it has, 
I can hardly find the eyes.

In flight~Off to find some more sweet goodness!
Aah, it was so nice just to take the time to follow the busy bees around but at the same time it was nice for me to slow down to enjoy the day. Time well spent if you ask me.
Did you take the time to enjoy the beauty all around this weekend. I hope so. Sometimes there is so much hurt in the world you just have to stop, try to make sense of it all but remember there is still plenty of beauty to enjoy. We just have to look for it.

Thanks so much for stopping by
Have a Beautiful week!

From the Heart,
Jana

  1. Lovely post and beautiful pictures that remind me that I need to slow down (I'm not a honeybee!) and enjoy Spring breaking forth. A tall glass of lemonade in the garden sounds delightful. Blessings to you, Patti

  2. Beautiful and great pictures. We are enjoying our spring blooms but unfortunately it is still very chilly here (I wrote a post about it today).
