Falling into Spring

As dry leaves drift down off the trees and skitter across the path ahead of me, I admire the new growth beside me.

As I noted a few years ago, the mixed-up seasonal signals in Phoenix abound, but I’ve learned to live with it.

    Lovely selection joined thematically. I particularly like the green growth photo with its range of focus.

      Judith – Thanks! I *sometimes* remember to play with depth of field and background images. . . 🙂

    People who live in Ottawa won’t want to hear this, but we have buds on our roses. With, dammit, snow on the ground.

      Jim – No one else in Canada wants to hear it, except maybe the winter-challenged Left Coasters. But I’m happy for you. Really.

    Is that a special variety of rose? Snow rose?
    Should be a poem in there somewhere.

    Grow, grow, thou winter rose,
    Thou art not so morose
    As winter’s bitter snows;
    Thy thorns are not so vicious,
    As freezing rain is viscous,
    and never meretricious.
