Liquid Green

Carpet of blue Siberian Squill

Seguy's birds. Love the colors.

Raining a lot the past couple of days - this time of year in Wisconsin the rain is liquid green. One good rain and some warm weather and things begin to explode.

The birds are really happy. Just stood for a moment or two in my parents backyard listening to all of the birds singing. My father says he hears the robins calling for rain. My mother said that her mother used to say the same thing. I wish I knew what call they were referring to.

Some bunny eating spring grass in my backyard.

Thunderstorms yesterday and today. Sat and listened to the thunder and the sound of the rain pounding on the roof. Nice soothing sounds. I enjoy thunderstorms.

Have been a bit stymied in my creative work lately - obviously nothing really to show. Just don't seem to have the energy to create right now - life is getting in the way.

Today's quote comes from Henry Van Dyke: The first day of spring is one thing, and the first spring day is another. The difference between them is sometimes as great as a month.

Have a most excellent day!

Mine, too, obviously - that carpet of blue lasts only about a week. This year I remembered to take my good camera instead of my cell phone.

Thanks for reading, Rebecca!
