Thankful Thursday

My gratitude for the arrival of springtime is endless. There is green in our world!

This was from a trip to the south in May a couple of years ago. I seemed to spend a lot of my time looking srtaight up toward the sky while standing in the midst of towering aspens - my photo library is full of the images. I guess that the wonder of green leaves has captured my attention yearly!

Most years in May, we get a surprise snow storm, reminding us of who is in charge. Look at how snowy the mountains were as Shyla peeked at me. It will be winter up in the alpine zone for a long time. So far, the sneaky snow storms are not in the forecast.
On this Thankful Thursday, I am so grateful for springtime. I am sitting on my deck as I type this. I can see my greenhouse which is popping with salad greens that we are already able to harvest. The season of warmth and plenty is upon us.

We are linking up with the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!


  1. I love the tree photo... it has something from hope and eternity and it makes my heart sing!!

  11. I love aspens and you have taken a gorgeous looking-at-the-sky photo with them. I get dizzy looking up like that, but still do it LOL. Great to hear spring is finally arriving at Your Place :) xx

  12. We were just commenting the other night how lovely it is to see everything so green. When we look out our back windows, we can see at least 15 different shades of green. It would be nice if it could last through the summer. But the heat does a number on the green spaces:(

  13. Oh, how I wish there were snow's gonna be near 100 by Sunday. sigh. Miss winter already ☺
    You are lookin' adorables Shyla!
