Today I join my fellow bloggers in "serving up a slice"
to the Slice of Life (SOL) community.
Thanks to Stacey, Betsy, Beth, Kathleen, Deb, Lisa, Melanie, and Lanny
for hosting this meeting place each day in March
and for nurturing our writing lives.
I love calendars, I love quotes, and I love pictures of beautiful scenes in nature. So of course my favorite calendars feature quotes and beautiful pictures. This past Sunday my daughter accused me of holding spring at arm's length because my snowman collection was still out. So I whisked those snowmen into their storage boxes on Tuesday, the first day of spring, and spent the rest of the week welcoming spring properly by snapping pics of beautiful blossoms!

Who can resist a touch of pink?
And here's a favorite calendar quote from several years ago to pair with the pictures, perfect for this Sabbath celebration of color. It's why my car should carry a warning sticker: "Caution - this car stops for springtime."
"Never lose an opportunity to see anything that is beautiful. It is God's handwriting - a wayside sacrament."
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
