These stones, found on my usual morning run along the Riverwalk, inspired me to create the elemental stones in The Guardian. I’m not sure who created these pieces, but the details on the elements are pretty cool.

Spring is my favorite season, mainly because I love flowers and gardening. I grow vegetables, herbs, and have many kinds of flowers in my yard. In Texas, the wildflowers start to bloom.
The Mountain Laurel’s purple blossoms and the Texas Redbud’s pretty pink buds decorate the landscape.
My own garden flourishes with roses, irises, daisies, marigolds, and other colorful flowers.
Gladiolus, tulips, daffodils, and lillies start to pop out of the ground, and my vegetables begin to sprout. Bushes bud, fragrant herbs grow, and the grass turns green. Crepe Myrtles sprout leaves and begin to flower. Spring is a beautiful time of year when nature comes back to life.
Happy spring, everyone! 🌞🌺🌻🌹🌷🌸

“Each of us has a unique offering. No one else is going to produce your product, write your book, open your academy. And if you don’t bring your gift forward, if you die with it still inside you, then we will all suffer from being deprived of your particular genius.” – Les Brown
