Old Man Winter casts a blast of his icy wrath into my mountains. As I stood on the end of the winter boat launch I could feel the chill creeping into my body in the absolute stillness of the frozen lake. Small stones litter the ice as even the very stones succumb to frosty teeth that bites at them. The ducks don’t seem to notice as they paddle about in the outlet of the creek.
They continue on in full expectation of returning sun with all it’s golden glory. Nearby the the chickweed is beginning to bud and in a few days will herald the March winds with tiny flowers that last into April. The rains will come and fill the lake until the muddy, rocky wasteland disappears for another season. This life is temporary and everything in it changes with its appointed time. Cold days will fade and ice will melt. The sun will drive Old Man Winter back to his kingdom in the North. In just a little over 7 weeks well have the official start of solar Spring but already the wild roses are telling us to get ready for a beautiful awakening. As I was out and about today I noticed the blood red buds of a wild roses and even a few early leaves.
Now for the sake of honesty the wild roses will do this several times before they awaken fully but it’s an early sign that the angel of the sun has reached a certain mark and climatic winter (by the old signs) will soon come to a close. It’s true that we’ll have a few more frozen days and a couple of more snowfalls first. But it’s closer than it was yesterday.
Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.
For those who have been following me on Facebook and know of the struggle content providers have to get circulation from big tech I’ve been recommending for people to adopt MeWe as a social media platform. One of the problems I’ve run into on MeWe is that people don’t know how to navigate the platform. So to help with that I’ve created a permanent page on my website as a basic Basic Beginner’s Guide To MeWe I’ve tried to anticipate all basic questions there and You can bookmark the page to have as a reference and if you have any questions or suggestions don’t hesitate to contact me. I do still have a day job and I help admin several pages on both platforms so replies might be a little slow but I will answer you.
We also have the Lloyd’s Lens Photography Discussion Group on MeWe that is set up as a fully functional community. There you’ll not only be able to see and connect with me but you can also make your own posts and interact with each other.
