Thankful Thursday

I don't usually post on Thursdays but I think we can all use some encouragement today.

Marvin and I are trying to take a walk each evening after dinner. I took this picture of my neighbor 's dogwoods. He lives across the highway from our development.

Dogwoods always encourage me. I also appreciate this older neighbor whose property is always so well kept. In the summertime I sometimes see him out on his riding lawn mower, keeping the landscaping up.

We call these snowball bushes here in the South. These are just about ready to turn white. Again a neighbor whose property abuts our townhome community. I love the way the evening sun is shining down on this bush.

Thank you God for the beauty that you give to us each day. Help me to have a grateful heart.

Thank you so much for sharing today. I love the Dogwood, and it is nice to see the pictures of them blooming. I have one in our front yard my father gave us years ago. I am looking forward to it blooming. You know the smell of the fresh spring air is so welcome. Many blessings to you and yours today:)

Ahhh--thanks for the memory--we also had a big bush that had those flowers on it and we called it the snowball bush--they had a pretty smell to them, if I remember right--that was in New York state out in the country!!
take care--
luv, di

My Granny Kelly, who lived in Ohio, called her bushes snowballs, too. She had several colors. Beautiful!!

The Spring flowers and trees really do cheer us up. I loved Snowball bushes and of courses Dogwoods and Redbuds! Take care my friend...both of you! Hugs!

What beautiful spring scenes, Arlene! That is one thing I'm finding hard--not being able to get outside. It has been very chilly and rainy up north. We finally had a gorgeous day today and it felt wonderful to step outside and just enjoy the sounds of nature and feel the sun on my face :)

The property is beautiful and walking in the woods feeds my soul. I'm doing even more of it these lockdown days. Stay well.
