May Flowers!

It has been a long prairie Winter and it is good to see some real signs of Spring! I took this picture today - the little yellow flowers look so cute and courageous. They are the only flowering things in the yard so far. It makes my eyes happy to look upon them.

My eyes are also glad to look at our guinea pigs, Scooter and Corky. When I was feeding them a little while ago, before I went outside to take the flower picture, I sat and watched them eat. They are very focussed eaters. I can learn a lot from them. They are single minded about their task of eating, just like they are totally committed to their naps. Do one thing at a time, and do it well: The Zen of Pigs.
