I went for a walk today. The park is still snow layden, white, crisp and has yet to be walked upon. Further down, before I came upon this scene there were lots of geese walking in a line. It seems they were taking care not to walk on the snow. Or maybe they were just foraging. It was odd to see.. a waddling line of geese.

– Flower Of The Day – Tulips

OK! I’m thinking spring! Yup, I’m envisioning my own good news. Taken 4/21/2019 in my garden, apparently. It is cool to be able to look back and see where and when you took a photo. But, its also kinda creepy. Especially when google is trying to sell you a copy of your own photo!

FOTD – February 19 – Tulip Buds

Pitter – Patter

A few days ago the drips from my eaves formed rhythm with tweets from the bare branches of the pear tree. That, has moved on and the birds are back in hiding. Today we are engulfed in a steady snowfall.

We are back to pretty. But not for long. When the neighborhood inches back to life we shall be ankle deep in slush again. And so it goes.

melting icicles
the sound of pitter patter –
make believe raindrops



lingering twilight
ancestors knocking at the door –
will there be another spring?
