A Little Quote and a Little Note


The beautiful spring came; and when Nature resumes her loveliness, 
the human soul is apt to revive also.
~ Harriet Ann Jacobs

So, here is the leading edge of spring.  
The frogs are singing in the pond,
the birds are singing in the trees. 


Here in these northern hills,
our spring flowers are not yet blooming,
but there is softness in the catkins
and the frayed edges of autumn's remains.


The air is lovely and alive,
and it is a beautiful thing
to take a deep breath ,
in a still and quiet place,
on the leading edge of spring.


Wherever you are, whatever the weather, I wish you peace.

Hi sweet Marcie! Oh, that sky! So blue! Lovely you, lovely quote.

Marcie said...

Thank you, dear Pom! The blue sky is SO welcome, after a dreary start to the season. And, possible thunderstorms tomorrow, so I really needed to soak up that blue! Thank you, lovely YOU!

Such good photos. Is that bark coming off a tree?

Marcie said...

In that last photo, the bark is rolling off a bit of stump. I love the perfect coil it made! Thank you for your kind comment on my photos. It feels so good to get out and find interesting things to take photos of!

Probably my late spring will look like your early spring, Jan. I will let you know when the flowers bloom!
