Spring Yesterday, Winter Today

One day the air brims with geese Vs returning, damp warming soil aromas, and tufted titmouse birds performing mating calls.

The next day, heavy, gray/white snow, somber, quiet stillness, and chilly, wet intruding cold.

As my hubby would say, “Just like real life.”

Yet, given our lack of snow and rain of late, mercifully, you can almost feel the plants soaking up the moisture, bird baths and rain barrels filling to their tops, and hammelis  ‘Arnold’s Promise’ yellow flowers remind you the warm weather show has just begun.

A joy of getting older: realizing there’s a bright side to almost everything.
