This was our view the other evening as Charles and I took our walk around our neighborhood. Buzzards and hawks were circling overhead, the sun was setting over the neighbor's woodlands, and the sky was filled with rich yellows, golds and oranges. I had enough time last evening at the B&B to finally paint it.
Our temps will fall this evening, causing a bit of a slow down to the rampant blooming we're experiencing ... from Bradford pears, maples, oaks to daffodils and crocus and tulips .... I won't see anything like this flower exuberance for a couple of weeks in Oxford - but spring is definitely on its way.
Working south and living north, I'm reminded of Edwin Way Teale's book "North With the Spring" ... for that title describes exacting my weekly commutes ...along with the way the seaon progresses for me.
