You all have seen this shot of my yard about a million times by now. It’s the path back up from the land grant so I walk it every afternoon. You’ve seen it buried in snow or brown with its winter grasses. I’ve posted photos of it iced over and delicately dusted with snow. But have you ever seen it deep in the new grasses of spring? I don’t think so (or if you have it was a whole year ago and long forgotten by now—even by me).
JUST LOOK AT THIS! Lush spring grasses are popping up all over. Wildflowers are even offering their delicate beauty here and there. The hummingbirds are back and songbirds are here to stay. Butterflies dance in the clear blue light and the rabbits and lizards are showing themselves (not to mention the gophers). My yard has suddenly sprung to life. Ah, spring. Finn lazes in the sun; Kelee rolls in the fragrant green. Could it really ever be better than this?
Love to you all,
