More Signs of Spring

Hummer-feeder_04-23-2020

The flowers are well on their way
pushing up through the mulch.
The trees have displayed their flowers
and now leaves of green are protruding from the stems.
Bird watchers report the northern migration
and so, the Hummingbird feeder has been installed.
The magic of the hummers and their territorial dance
is just a short time away, for it is the beginning of Spring.

Be well. Stay safe. See you on the highway.

The Joy Will Come

Garden_4-21-2020

Early Spring and hope is essential
For we are quarantined
Trying to avoid something we cannot see.

The flowerbeds begin to change
Showing new life. Memories and photos
Reveal what will be.

Be well. Stay safe. The joy will come.

Serenity on a stream

Castalia-Sunnybrook_9-7-2019-5

Fishing for trout usually involves beautiful places. Quiet. Peacefulness. Serenity. And just like opportunities in life, sometimes, a second chance is needed. That is what “catch and release” is all about. You catch the fish, and return them to their home for a second chance at growing old.

And, so I did. I returned the rainbow to it’s waters.

See you on the highway.

Easter ride

It’s Easter. He is risen and all things are new again.

There is something about a motorcycle ride in Spring when the trees are turning from empty to green with early leaves and buds. The roads with no center line or any paint markings are a joy to ride. To explore. Occassionally, a beautiful red bud tree shows its shade of red among the green giving a wonderful contrast of those country roads.

Oh the joy of a springtime ride.

See you on the highway.

Autumn

Of the four seasons, I like Autumn the best. The temperatures are brisk in the morning and mild in the afternoon. The colors are vibrant. The dwarf burning bushes let you know they are in the prime of the season.
