A spring garden in Canada includes tulips.
Pink and White!
Pink and White!
Life has day and night. Dark and light! We all cast shadows periodically. To stand in the light means a shadow will be seen. What we do with our dark side is manageable and can give meaning to us at a deeper level. Sometimes the dark and light are together. Like our path of life we just keep moving forward.

Babies are easily contained. Preschoolers can know their rules and well teenagers can not be told anything. But the toddler year with its exploration of everything and learning takes some creativity in making a home safe. They climb, pull, put things in their mouths and well run, jump and explore everywhere. The stairs are always a worry. Some learn to go up and down like the rest of us. However, one little one likes to sit on her bum and well slide down! Hum! So needing to be beside her and yes there must be gates for protection. Seeing the world through the little one's eyes takes constant awareness. Safety is the main issues so any cleaning products, medication and whatever should not be in the child's hands must be put away. Then activities for learning- well those are fun. Just looking out a window at the squirrels for example are enjoyable moments. The speech development takes off at an enormous speed. The learning of words then to mini sentences. Understanding commands! Of course- give Nana a hug please! Well that is easy to do! Yes the energy level is huge, so put on your running shoes!

Having an extra day on the weekend is always great. But why does it never seem long enough?? Enjoying the good weather and being able to be outdoors for part of the time helps. Long weekends become work weekends especially this time of year with garden planting and cleanup. The good news is the 4 day work week. Already Tuesday! The days are longer so more time at night to enjoy the outdoors. How did your weekend go? Was it eventful? Did you enjoy some fireworks? Have a great week! Still lots of May to enjoy!

Long weekends usually mean lots of work around the house and garden. To cut up the monotony of such work a leisurely stroll in early morning with my camera was a photographer's heaven.
Pink trees line the park where the grandchildren play sometimes.
