In Spring and summer, there are certain things that create emotion.
I don't know what makes us so melancholy in the Spring and summer.
It just happens.
For instance, THIS fellow makes me both smile and get angry at the same time.
(He eats up all my bird seed, ALL DAY LONG!!):
And this little fluffy chipping sparrow twittering on the branches
just makes me happy:
The eloquence of a Columbine, makes me wonder about the miracles of Nature:
This was one of the farm dogs at the Alpaca farm I recently visited.
His sad, loyal eyes makes me want a dog again. Longing.
But I can't....I just can't:
A goldfinch in flight
just takes my breath away:
And seeing bright yellow in the trees after a barren, cold winter lifts my spirits up
more than I can describe:
If he is FLUFFY??....
Well, it makes me darn right GIDDY:
The bright greens of hosta leaves and the delicate blue forget-me-nots
make me smile in wonder:
Finding a garden moose for my garden at a rummage sale for $4.00??
Practically DRUNK with joy!:
And spying a hummingbird aiming for spring blossoms?
Thankful to the angels in heaven:
May your day be full of this season's emotions....
and gratefulness to Mother Nature
for the joy the seasons brings us.
