Spring is coming…

“Every blade in the field
Every leaf in the forest
Lays down its life in its season
As beautifully as
it was taken up.”
Henry David Thoreau

Craving Springtime…

“It’s spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you’ve got it, you want — oh, you don’t quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!” Mark Twain

While traveling over the recent holidays, I came upon this large pot at a friend’s home in California. The flower’s splash of color and the trailing plant was one of many to be enjoyed. At home (Portland) the Winter drabness of greys, browns, greens are waiting for the early colors of Rhododendrons, Camelias, Azaleas, Tulips, and Daffodils. The Daphne’s fragrance, by the front porch, will be appreciated. In the meantime I do need to finally climb up that ladder and fix that clogged gutter.

faith in renewal, in rebirth……

Nature looks dead in winter because her life is gathered into her heart. She withers the plant down to the root that she may grow it up again fairer and stronger. She calls her family together within her inmost home to prepare them for being scattered abroad upon the face of the earth.” Hugh Macmillan, Rejuvenescence, The Ministry of Nature, 1871

Blackbird…

The blackbird whirled in the autumn winds.
It was a small part of the pantomime….

When the blackbird flew out of sight,
It marked the edge
Of one of many circles.

Wallace Stevens
