NO INSECURITIES THIS MONTH...A QUICK IWSG POST...


 Hi All,

Welcome to another IWSG post. Once again we are privileged to write about our writing insecurities and ask and give advice to those who are in need, thanks to Alex and his amazing hosts. If you would like to join our group, please pop over to Alex's blog and sign up. 

Spring is upon us and I can't help noticing all the signs of rebirth. The trees and flowers are blossoming everywhere and the birds and bees are chirping and buzzing throughout my property. It has been a busy month for me working on my gardens and enjoying all the benefits of spring and the warmer weather. I haven't had much time to write, but I have thought about many things during my time in the great outdoors. It made me realize that we should all commune with nature from time to time. It clears our heads and brings joy to our hearts. It is the perfect way to sweep away your writing insecurities and take back the parts of your soul that have been craving some peace and solitude. Even if it is only for a few short minutes, stroll around your yard, or take a walk to a nearby park and open your eyes and heart to the wonders of nature. It truly is food for your soul.

I would to share with you some pics of my garden to inspire you to commune with nature. Have a wonderful month everyone, and take good care of yourselves...

I've always enjoyed working in my yard. When the world gets too crazy for me, I like to relax in my own little piece of the planet.

I left a comment, but then got distracted by my cat. I'm not sure if I hit post and it went to comment moderartion or the little furball deleted it.
So, I'll add again-- working in the yard always makes me feel like all is right in my own little piece of the planet.

Thanks for the beautiful inspiration from your garden. I'm trying to be outside more too to enjoy my flower and vegetable gardens.

I'm trying to commune with nature this year. I bought a tomato plant and am attempting to grow it. I say attempt because I have killed multiple cacti so it's going to be a perilous journey for this plant. ^^;;

Lovely plants! I've been in the garden too, or rather the weeds. :) I'm trying to get the last of the dirt turned over for seeds by the weekend. Happy gardening!
