I Need More Green
Yesterday was a taste of spring. The road was dry, the sun had enough strength to warm your back as we walked and I began to remember what the earth smells like. I wake up earlier, dawn starts her appearance about 6 am and I am eager to start my gardening year ritual; the early walk around the garden with a big mug of coffee and a cigarette. I am longing for green, for growth, so that is why I put together photos of one of my favorite flowers, Queen Anne's Lace. Some consider her a weed, I think she is a beauty. The structure of her flower heads, the pattern of her leaves, the texture of the seed pods and did I mention she has a soft, honey fragrance; what is not to love.
P.S. Spoke to soon, we had another foot of snow last night. More than the Great Blizzard but my path is getting there.
