After this morning’s walk I thought you might enjoy exploring our very first Bright Square gallery. There were already 70 squarers participating on the day I began to prepare this gallery, and far more by the time I finished curating it. What a fabulous start to the month. I thought I’d start with some brand new squarers accompanied by a few who last joined us in 2020.

Wasn’t that a great first room of squares. It is such fun meeting new bloggers and catching up with old friends. And talking of friends let’s now visit a few of our regular squarers;

If you have not yet joined us as a squarer there is plenty of time. As you will soon discover the majority of squarers join us randomly through the week, others just at weekends and some pop in occasionally during the month.

Oh my I’ve just realised I have never mentioned coffee and cake, or glasses of something and a few olives. Whatever the time of day and your preference, I do recommend pouring yourself a little something as we have a few more rooms to visit.

I do hope everything one is okay at the moment, specially those of you who are recovering from Covid-19, are in the middle of yet another lock down and/or are supporting family and friends with other challenges in this weird times. Sending hugs to you all, and remember to be kind to yourself as well as others.

  • By taking time to share bright hearts and find things that make us happy, I am confident brighter days will come
  • So look around you, you might be surprised by what there is to appreciate as well as the beauty at your feet
  • There is also joy to be found high up above us in the glorious sunshine, no wonder the theme of bright has hit exactly the right spot for so many of us
  • It is a great excuse to play with the camera and to delve into the archives or should I say under hedges!

I know there are quite a few rooms and squares to visit in this first gallery. I do hope though that everyone is able to visit at least two squarers in every room. It means so much to us all to receive a visit a few days after we have posted a square.

  • Especially if you have poured yourself a cuppa at the end of the day, or at the beginning when it is a time for renewal
  • And we all want someone to dance with, so be a butterfly and flit to as many squares as you can today
  • Not only might you find someone cute to fall into bed with, but there is some beautiful bird song to enjoy
  • There is also some fantastic art; no wonder I cannot wait to see what other unique finds and delights you will be sharing this month

Although maybe you won’t have time today, what with a gallery and a walk to enjoy but, hopefully you will have time this weekend to share a square image. I would love it if you did, just remember a square has 4 equal sides! But before you dash off to find your squares for the weekend, here’s our final room;

  • This square is a must visit for Margaret and these are for everyone seeking joy and/or a colourful life
  • So come on and explore the caves with me, and leave the funk behind!
  • I can also promise you some fabulously bright wheels and I think there are going to be multiple rainbows
  • You see, thanks to squares, even the darkest clouds have a bright side and the coldest waters can be inviting, so come get caught up in our squaring web!

Wasn’t that a wonderful first gallery. Do hope you enjoyed exploring it as much as I did curating.

      1. I see what you mean about the great reveal. I will have sometime to visit several today. I wonder if everyone could pick out which one was theirs. You have a clever way to display them so that we can’t just pick out our friend’s posts. Very cute. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. The weather was so lovely that we actually went out with cameras. It’s good we went because it will be the last warm day for at least a week. As our weather guy said, the colder temperatures are normal for this time of year. Even though I already know that, I’m so eager to be outside. I can hardly wait to see the world in May when suddenly, all that is thinking about spring will burst into bloom. Today we saw the beginnings of spring. Soon, I hope, we will see the rest of it.
