"I used to love fall," she said to no one in particular. "All that mortality and pangs of loneliness, but now, it's spring for me. I must be getting old." 

Joseph Monninger, The World As We Know It

It's cold enough to have a fire in the wood stove and a pot of soup on the stove top, but still I want to leave the front door wide open and let Spring breeze right in.  

Welcome, promise, renewal, vitality, light, growth, change.   I've been waiting for you.

  6. Love the honey bee with the pollen sacs on what looks like a peach blossom! I saw a few of what I hope are my girls in my peach tree a few days ago, but I didn't have my camera, and the picture would not have been as lovely as yours.

    1. thank you! I stalk bees regularly, but it takes a lot of clicks to get a decent shot. those loaded up pollen pockets are one of my favorite sights.
