Spring is in the air...

Okay, not really.  I mean, it is warming up here and feeling like spring, but today's post isn't necessarily dependent on it being "spring" in Arizona.

Today's blessing came in the form of a beautiful flowering bush:

Rascal #1 had a piano lesson this morning, and as is typical for us, Rascals #2 and #3 and I headed down to a nearby park to pass the 45 minutes of the piano lesson.  It's not long enough to go run an errand or head back home, so we usually just go and have fun at the park until Rascal #1 is ready to be picked up.  Today was no different.

I was overwhelmed with the beauty of this one particular flowering bush.  Now, these are everywhere here, and they've been blooming for quite awhile.  Today, however, the fragrance coming out of the flowers, and the sheer brilliance of the pink colour really struck me.  It was amazingly beautiful.

It reminded me that beauty can be found everywhere - as long as we keep our eyes open for it. 


  1. Are they bougainvillea? I love them. So beautiful and hard to kill, lol.

    1. I think so. I"m so bad at knowing my plants, I'll admit, but I'm pretty sure that's what these were!
