Lovely as the month of May

Maybe like a lot of people, we tend to stay pretty close to home. Occasionally a specific need drives us out of our little Valley, but never for long.

The sights and sounds that surround us are anything but boring, and it's only because we see them every day that we take them for granted. Vineyards, wild mustard, wine cellars and famous restaurants, blah, blah, blah.

But in Springtime, and specifically in May, the natural beauty here just demands our attention and gratitude.
There are, after all, lots of places where little scenes like these don't just happen on the side of the road. It's no wonder we never leave.

I'm sure part of the magic of Spring has something to do with feeling the warm sunshine after the Winter months of cold, and anticipating all the outdoor adventures that the Summer brings. The frogs chirp at night and the birds during the day, and if you wake up early enough you'll see hot air balloons drifting overhead. The hills are still green and the seeds in the garden are just sprouting.

We are truly lucky, and we only have to look around us to see why.
