Spring in all its glory

In my last post, I was eagerly awaiting spring. It’s now here, in all its glory! For me, this has got to be one of the best times of the year – it signifies the true start of a new year, with the plants and flowers beginning to grow, trees blossoming and sprouting new leaves, animals being born and birds hatching in their nests, days getting longer and warmer, evenings getting lighter, a true sense of expectation for the summer to come. I love it!

While out camping this weekend, I recorded the magical dawn chorus. Click on the audio link below, turn up the volume on your listening device, and enjoy.

The beauty of autumn

“There is a harmony
In autumn, and a lustre in its sky,
Which through the summer is not heard or seen,
As if it could not be, as if it had not been!”

-Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792 – 1822)

“How beautifully leaves grow old. How full of light and color are their last
days.”

-John Burroughs

“The one red leaf, the last of its clan,
That dances as often as dance it can,
Hanging so light, and hanging so high,
On the topmost twig that looks up at the sky.”

-Samuel Taylor Coleridge
