“A Touch of Spri…….”, unfortunately, I cannot finish that last word. That word which in its very nature speaks of growth, vibrancy, and warmth accentuating the season of hope …..hope for the future…..the future of wonderful delicacies from one’s own garden, Saturday (or in my little town, Thursday) bounty markets,
sunbaths in the warmth of the sun….cool, glistening, ice filled glasses full of thirst quenching refreshments. Ahhhhhhh, yes!! The promise of Spri……
Why, you may ask, am I finding it difficult to fully utter that word which elicits excitement found not only in the hearts of so many, but in the lives of all of nature?
Maybe it is a result of winter’s, seemingly cruel dance of allowing a moment, seriously just a moment of spri….. – like weather, only to abruptly grab it back in a selfish child-like attitude….screaming, “It’s mine!!”
It was a beautiful moment……it happened this past Thursday afternoon…..
…….nature was dancing…..frolicking…..awakening!! It was a magical moment….and it disappeared as fast as it arrived. Since then, winter, as mild as it has been this year, has strengthened its grip for awhile longer. There is rain in the forecast for the next four days, a continuation of something like fifteen days of rain we’ve already had…..hey, you live in the Pacific Northwest, you’re going to get rained on….a lot….except in the summer, but SHHHHHHH…..that’s a secret!!! It’s actually grey and rainy all year round…..right??!! 😉
In lower elevations, the cherry blossoms are in bloom….so beautiful!!
I think our State’s Capitol gardens are really beautiful…..Oregon is beautiful!!
Larry, Curly, and Mo (aka Montana, Clark, and Lott) wanted to give you an update of their wool debriding……
…..hahahaha!!! Aren’t they amazing??!!!!!
Thank you for visiting our little slice of Oregon. I truly appreciate each and every one of you.
