spring has been beautiful
wild orchids sprinkle the woods
but you must look for them
as they are not plentiful or obvious
a visitor, only stayed a couple of minutes
(a black bear)
many days involved visiting flowers
(yep, that is me)
some days are spent chasing Red-napped sapsuckers off of my mountain ash tree, and letting them peck for sap on the alders that grow like weeds
fields of flowers make my heart swell with energy
appreciation for life
collecting wild roses and herbs for tea
a spiritual elixer
tiny green being, the size of an ant
metallic and busy is a delight to see
visiting my sketch
while sitting in the grass
Spring was lovely!
Now to embrace summer and all the gifts it offers.
Lovely Solstice to you!
Be it Summer or Winter in your part of the world.
