For us, the first half of May has been significantly colder than the historical norm, which has slowed down springs’ arrival. Then we had a month’s worth of rain in five days. As of Tuesday spring finally seems to be here to stay, which means that our redbud tree is bursting with colour!
A favourite early spring flower is this, the Grape Hyacinth.
I went through some photos today. Came across this one of now gone on ahead ACDx Stella (foreground) and Achilles, and smiled. I was privileged to share years with them.
On April 15, snowflakes (called Christmas flakes because they were large and invoked a bit of cheer) nearly obscured the neighbours’ large pine tree.
We have looked forward to the Turkey Vultures’ return. It is good to see this first one return, and we look forward to watching them tilt and soar for the next several months.
Mere words fail to describe how lovely these crocuses are.
It has been a glorious early spring day. Full sun, not a cloud in the sky, Bella Luna rising in the afternoon.
A good day to be alive.
