The morning presented itself with the color of dove gray, the fog reaching up to my door. There is nothing more peaceful and perfect than a foggy morning on the lake. Colors pop, the air is still and quiet. Spiders rejoice, well maybe not, but I rejoice in seeing their fine works of art…. everywhere!! It is such a great morning for viewing the artwork of little spiders who spin their web structures in trees and anywhere else there is room. The dew and dull ambiance form little wet drops that accentuate these little masterpieces.
I am not sure if it is the groundhog who predicted an early spring, or the robins who took up residence in our neighborhood a few weeks ago feasting on holly berries, or the purple crocus that appear in late February in my neighbor’s yard that gets me more excited that spring is coming! Mother nature sends us the news that the days will be getting longer and the temps warmer. Baby birds will be born and beautiful flowers will bloom.
What are your favorite spring signs?
This year I was finally able to grow zinnias from seed! My community garden plot, part of the Old Hickory Community Garden, has produced an abundance of this flower.
And some more flowers of summer….
