Back in mid-March when we began this pandemic journey, I wrote a post titled “In These Times” that laid out some ideas I would use to return to self-care. One of those was to “see that Spring had awakened”.
Living in the Northeast, Spring seems to have taken it’s time, as we drift back and forth between rain and snow and between winter-type temperatures and early Spring temps. There have been moments, though, to experience what is unfolding – the return of migratory birds; some busy building nests, as well as, the emerging early spring flowers.
Last week I went to Florence Griswold Museum in Old Lyme, CT to visit their beautiful gardens. Given the recent weather, some of the early spring flowers had emerged but not all. While there, I took the opportunity to take some photos of what I could find and enjoy their beauty and the fresh air of the outdoors.
As a result of that adventure and the self-care it provided, I offer to you a short video, “To Truly Discover the Awakening Spring”, I put together to share what I discovered, along with some thoughts I had around taking this time to truly see the beauty that still can be found.

Hope you are safe and well, and this little respite gives you peace.
