 I stepped outside our front door the other day and
spotted this from the corner of my eye.
It's from our Magnolia tree.

 I get amazed over and over at how God has
a perfect plan.

 I stepped out the door further when something else caught my attention.

Spring ....
it's around the corner!

My Simple Please!

Dayle, over at A Collection of This and That,
is hosting Simple Pleasures.
Please join us every Thursday.


  1. Beautiful simple pleasure...yes rebirth and spring...but also the beauty during the time of dormancy

  2. Spring? What's that? lol...not until March does spring sprout like that! I suppose by then, your blooms will be gone! ha.

  3. The magnolia leaf is beautiful -- you can see every little vein. It is definitely approaching spring in your neck of the woods. Speaking of which -- your new pic of Seattle is gorgeous! I know how much you love it there. I often thing how blessed you are to LOVE where you live.

  4. What a joy to see new life bursting through the ground!! Simply wonderful!

  5. Love the skeleton leaf,it's so delicate -- and the new shoots are so fragile. Beautiful
    God Bless

  6. Is that leaf white? It is beautiful and I love it when the new shoots start peeking through. I had some of my sedum starting to peek, but I think this brutal cold spell will destroy that growth. Hope they can try again!

  7. Beautiful photographs. I love watching the flowers come up in the spring time...such hope and beauty.

  8. the groundhogs here predicted early spring. Reading your post...seeing the tulips pushing their way up....yeahhhhh. ☺

  9. yay!! I'm longing for spring this year. Just a taste of it is INDEED a simple pleasure.

  10. I am doing the count down to spring .........

  11. Pretty picture of the leave. I am sure so many are looking forward to Spring. God gives us so many simple pleasures in life...and this is definately one of them!

    I was going to be jealous but then realized - I am head to a tropical country next week.
