Beau February 24th, 2007
After last year’s drought, it’s hard not to be thankful for all the snow and rain this winter. Today we have more… the pond has thawed and is completely full with the rain continuing. A great start to the coming seasons, although the ground is so saturated that it’s muddy and squishy everywhere! Need to think about seeding grass and fertilizing in many areas, but that will wait a month or so. For now we enjoy the weather for its changing beauty. I took this a few days ago, but it shows the sun and clouds on a late February afternoon. How is it that our emotions and feelings are so enchanted by the weather? Thank goodness it is everchanging… I enjoy warmth and sun as much as the next person, but I love the seasons more for the change it represents, perhaps both within and as a joyful, external expression of nature’s energy and the beauty of the world around us.
