The late afternoon air is cool and crisp as I step out towards my little sanctuary today. Yesterday I had published a photo of this very same tree only the photo was 48 hours old. Today, just in time for the first day of Spring the Buckeye finally opened. After about five months of seeing empty branches the opening of the Buckeye buds is as beautiful and wonderful as the bloom of any flower. The actual flower of the Buckeye tree is quite attractive in its own right but the return of life to my forest is long expected sight for sore eyes. To be honest, Buckeye is an early species and generally wakes before anything else but the others are not far behind. A second sign of the forest waking up today was a solitary earthworm. That means that the soil temperature is above 40 degrees on the shady side of the mountain. Normally when the soil is cooler we’ll see the worms gathered in clusters and not exploring alone. Winter is officially over! Welcome Spring!
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.
