Spring in the Bitterroot

It’s official! The tiny yellow buttercups are blooming in the pasture, the boy turkeys are chasing the girl turkeys and I’m wearing my tennis shoes again. Spring is here. Yay! I woke up this morning to see the wild turkey herd roaming around in our front pasture, and the boys had all their plumage on display and they were gliding along like cruise ships, turning this way and that, letting all the girls get a good look. Then, as soon as they got close to their target, they’d scuttle along like crabs to try and catch the girl turkey of their dreams. What a hoot!

I also finally got my garden starts started yesterday and I’m excitedly waiting for some seedlings to pop up. There’s just something about working in the dirt that I love. To make the most of it, I also put on my Nature Connection bracelet and asked the gardening gods for a bit of help. I have a camouflage thumb – part brown and part green. I’m hoping to graduate to a green thumb this year. I believe all it takes on my part is patience. I certainly have the will and the optimism!

I’m also having a lot of fun making bracelets, coaching and doing card readings for people. I’ve met some of the nicest people online doing this work! It’s fun to get orders from all over the world and send them out with a blessing, like little ambassadors of good energy. I think I’m finally done fine-tuning my website, so I figured it was time to get back to the blog. How does almost three weeks pass so quickly? I heard that time is actually speeding up, according to the physicists….it’s not just that I’m getting old. What a relief! :-)
