April Musings



Hello everyone,
Well, so far, April in northwest Ohio has been colder than March! I guess that's to be expected for spring in the midwest, but I do long for sunny days and warm breezes. As most of my regular followers know, I've been on a blogging break. Not a vacation (I wish!) In fact, I've been working and getting caught up on some things...and I'm also taking a step back from my blog to decide which direction I want to go with it in the future. I'm so grateful for my followers and the friendships I've made in the ten months since I started this venture! So, I wanted to drop in and say "hello" and share some photos I took on my daily walks this past week. There's a frost warning tonight, so I hope it doesn't harm any of the plants and flowers already blooming! I'll be back to full-time blogging soon and hopefully have a clear vision of what I hope to share with you! I hope everyone has been well - I try to visit as many of you as possible in my spare time. Hugs all around!

Until next time,
Cindy

Hey Cindy! Nice to have some news of you. Spring is just gearing up here. crocuses are blooming!!!

Pretty soon I'll be working and playing outside, far from my computer - so I know what you mean about being busy and needing a break.

Hope you're actually taking some time to chill as well.

Your photos are lovely. We are having rain and threat of thunderstorms and snow in the next few days. This is our Spring...it just looks and feels like Winter! Your buster is adorable. Creative bliss...

That first photo with the lilacs could be a painting. I adore lilacs. Spring is here in a tentative way, in California. I planted a big Bleeding Heart plant today.

Beautiful photos! Enjoy your break we will still be here when you are ready to come back. We had a few snow flurries in northern Michigan last night. You are right March was warmer. Thanks for stopping by, Laura

Beautiful blossoms and I do love lilacs! Hope you're back soon! (Our Spring has been all over the place, hasn't it, cold in the 20s tonight!)

Tracey@Breathing English Air said...

Pretty pictures. The blossom always looks so lovely, it is a pity it is so short lived.
Your weather sounds similar to ours. April turned chilly again and I have to keep checking on frost tender plants.
I hope you manage to catch up with all the things that need doing. I know how that feels!

Jen @ Creating with the J's said...

The frost was heavy here last night. My fingers hurt by the time I was done uncovering all the plants! Enjoy the break and the sunny days, even if they aren't warm yet.

Netty said...

Thank you for sharing these beautiful photos Cindy. Am sure your brain is a bit frazzled after all your latest ventures. Take some time out my friend and allow the thoughts to settle down. Hugs Annette x

Hi Cindy! I understand that. I myself has been quite away from blogging lately because like you, I am thinking my future direction will be. It is kinda tough because I love blogging, but I am in process in writing a story and been looking for jobs, because I'd like to earn to fly to see my family in the Philippines.

The pictures are beautiful especially the pink flowers. They are seriously gorgeous!
