Perfect description for today. Here is a gallery of florals from walking the dogs this morning.
Inspired by Terri of Second Wind Leisure’s Sunday Stills: Fabulous Seasonal #florals. Our rather chilly spring has kept many things blooming that would usually be about done by now, such as the daffodils and tulips. Yet the usual suspects, like the wood hyacinth, crabapple and peony are valiantly going ahead as planned. It seems like everything is blooming right now.
Certainly one of the most memorable things in my life was a three day safari at Masai Mara National Park in Kenya. It was about ten years ago now but the memories have not faded. Words can’t describe being in such an awe inspiring place. I was there for only three days but…wow…I look back and have a hard time believing all of the amazing wildlife we saw.
Spring is here technically but it’s still pretty chilly. Sunday I went out in search of signs of spring. The first spring green I found was the very healthy moss growing on the fire pit. It was spring green the color, but a very winter-y sort of growth.
From a distance there doesn’t seem to be much green in the woods.
Looking closer, I found a few brave leaves starting to emerge.
The past few days have been glorious. The lower angle of the sun makes the fall foliage glow. The blue skies compliment the golden to red palette of fall leaves. We took a long walk today, it is already clouding up and the next few days will be rainy, if the forecasts are correct.
I also want to share this great quote that I found yesterday:
