So fellow travelers, those reluctant lilacs I wrote about several weeks ago have finally come out of hibernation.
Given the constant rain and chilly temperatures I surely do not blame them for holding out as long as they could. For goodness sake, it was 45° this morning! Refilling the suet feeders my hands were so cold I almost dashed back inside to grab some gloves!
I snapped this quick shot with a bit of poetry in mind. With overcast skies it’s not the best of lighting, but sometimes we just make do with what we have in the moment.
Blossoms bursting free
Flooding my senses with joy
Grateful once again
With the school year coming to a close, I too feel ready to burst out of hibernation. The promise of summer adventures is as heady a rush as the perfume of my late blooming lilacs. All in good time, they tell me, all in good time.
Walk gently on the path my friends and may adventure find you ready.
