I know Spring is here to stay when I see the first Grosbeak back from their Winter stay in Mexico!  

Pansies and Violas are ready to be transplanted into my garden.  

The cherry trees are full of blossoms and soon, hopefully, there will be πŸ’.  I might even get to eat a few before the birds get them all.  

The water level in little Lake Gregory is the highest I’ve seen in years, now that the new dam is finished and everything is back in its proper place.  I just hope we don’t get an algae bloom like we did last spring and summer.  

Now I’m off to make a cup of tea.  I hope everyone is staying well, staying in and wearing your masks when you go out.  Hopefully these trying times will pass soon.

Strange, Scary Times

How different the world has become since the last time I posted.  I hope everyone is well, and able to stay well.  Spring has been teasing us up here in the mountains, dancing in for a day or so of warmth then quickly leaving.  This kind of off then on warmth makes for some magical scenes though, like the one above of trees and bushes touched with hoar frost.

Last night’s pretty sunset as seen from my front porch.  I only go out for groceries, although supplies are getting harder and harder to come by up here, or for solitary walks in places where I know no one else will be walking.  

Although these are scary times, I’m trying to stay positive by counting my blessings, focusing on the small things that bring joy, and having faith that “all shall be well, and all shall be well and all manner of things shall be exceeding well” to quote Julian of Norwich.  And I hope that all shall be, and is, well with you and those you love.
