Spring!!! It’s Happening!
Blossoms, buds, green tips, mossy everything, wet earth, longer days, warmer sun. Rebirth. A fresh start, a new beginning.
Anyway I¬†look at it, I can’t get over how lovely this time of year is.
These pics are from Laurelhurst Park, just a few blocks from our house and a place of significant botanical interest. In the olden days, Laurelhurst park was the backyard to a mansion, now its all of ours’ backyard.

The Meadow and the Forest; with Lupins, Hawks and Chestnuts

foot-tree
All it takes is an afternoon in a little bit of nature to rebalance and ground. Walking on a mossy fallen tree in the high grass. Crouching in a patch of lupines to be surrounded by the hum of busy bees. Watching a dance of light on a broad blur dock leaf, spotting a hawk way up in the trees.
