Gardening + Nature

It’s amazing how much a person can see when really looking. I wonder how much I miss on a daily basis, how much I don’t spy with my little eye: drops of water, chimes on high, giggle worthy stickers, and creepy looking heads; all fun, all magic, that quotidian spark.

Ten minutes ago, this is what I saw. Tiptoeing to capture the gifts of morning. It rained during the night and left everything dewy and lovely. The lilac and apple buds are near bursting, while the bitter cherry open wide to let in bees and sun. And this light! Off it transports me to a fabled land of perpetual summer. Sweet kitties, groggy and happy from a giant breakfast. It’s going to be a great day…

One Community is a monthly project in which participants photograph their homes and community with a theme in mind. The goal is to both showcase similarities and differences in our communities worldwide – and bring us all closer together in understanding through art.

Why don’t you join us? It’s fun! Post one or more photos for each of this month’s theme words, spring, flowers, purple, and rise, and add your blog post to the link-up. Easy! It begins today, April 5th, and stays open for one week.

ALSO, if you are a planner, here are our words for May, chosen by Sue at No Bad Days: five, mother, recipe, and remember.

Snap happy!

 Oh, this weather! One minute wild with giant drops and the next the brightest golden light a flutter of a kiss on cheek and leaf and bloom. Spring!

Happy nodding blossoms and sprouts sending me and the bees swooning in the garden:

 red flowering currant

though I find the majority of the blooms decidedly pink

muscari

yellow flowering currant

kinnikinnick

wild strawberry

peony

neither a bloom nor a sprout, but lovely still – a decaying winter sweet seed pod

fiddlehead

plum

tulip

And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.
