Is it Spring yet?

DSC07790“The invariable mark of wisdom is to see the miraculous in the common.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

One paperwhite, one dwarf iris, one yellow crocus.  The daffodils are coming up, but no blooms yet.  It won’t be long!  I’m looking forward to green again.  And dragonflies.

Toadally Cool

The sun is set; the swallows are asleep;
The bats are flitting fast in the gray air;
The slow soft toads out of damp corners creep,
And evening’s breath, wandering here and there
Over the quivering surface of the stream,
Wakes not one ripple from its summer dream.
–Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)

I still can’t upload new photos, so this is a repeat.  Actually he’s a frog.

They are back!

The dragonflies are back.  They make me smile.  I haven’t started taking pictures yet.  My camera quality is a bit embarrassing.  I picked this one from the internet.  : (

It took Spring a long time to get here, but it is making up for it now.  I put a hummingbird feeder out and there was one within five minutes.  The frogs, toads, skinks, and snakes are out.  I have seen some turtles basking, but I haven’t had to move any off the road yet.

The daffodils are beautiful this year and my perennials are coming up.  The trees are starting to get leaves and the dogwoods are just beginning to bloom.  I try not to complain about Winter, but I am ready for Spring!

flying

“Be secret and exult.

Because of all things know

That is most difficult.” William Butler Yeats

Haikus:

Vultures in the sky.

Cloudless day for flying low.

Black against the blue.

A monarch flew by.

Why is it here in the cold?

Please find your way homeward soon.

It is hard to believe it has been two months since the monarchs emerged.
