Waking Up & Waiting

Hello friends! Tonight’s feature image is titled “Azalea Buds 3220″and is available for purchase by the instructions at the bottom of the article.

After the rain stops my mountain comes alive with songbirds. They dart hither and yon between the feeders trying their best to stay hidden. As the days progress I see more and more signs that warmer days are drawing closer. The texture of the forest has begun to change. The buds on the trees are really swollen and will soon erupt into lush greenery. The sound of Little Elk Creek giggling as it flows to the Gauley River also fills the air. The next mark on my natural calendar us the Mayflowers and Trout Lilies. I have noticed the variations in the colorsof the forest floor that tells me that something is bursting through the leaf litter. Patches of bright green break up the plane of dull brown hillsides. The mists are rising from the earth instead of settling upon it which tells me that the ground is warmer than air. It’s time to start prepping the garden when the soil wakes. I stepped over to the Orange Azalea and judging by the scales that have fallen off it won’t be much longer before it opens up and springs to life. In some ways I feel like I’m returning to life along with it.

  1. Lloyd, good to hear that your area is awakening to Spring. It is always a joy to see new life spring forth. Here in Interior Alaska, we are enjoying more daylight. About 12.5 hours between sunrise and sunset but it is light longer than that. In about 2 months it will be light all the time. We have about 3-5 feet of snow on the ground and we are getting fresh snow. In May, after the snow melts, the leaves bud and pop out in a day or two. Enjoy your Spring! 🙂 Hazel
