Spring is Around the Corner


Sitting quietly, doing nothing

Spring Comes, and the grass grows by itself

Nine days away but the weather certainly feels like spring. No rain in the long-range forecast. Still cool but sunny and the sky is often, not always, blue. Flowers are blooming and the Gingko trees on my street are sprouting new leaves as they do each year.

Great time to enjoy the outdoors. About a month ago, before we got some heavy rains, JHL and I went back to Los Trancos trail in Foothills Park. It was damp but Buckeye Creek was far from full. The rainfall this year stands at just above 50% of the norm. Didn't see chanterelles, but found some oyster mushrooms; delicious.

A 7.5 mile loop, the trail climbs towards Skyline in the west, makes a hairpin bend and returns to the valley floor.

Inscription on the plaque reads: "In Honor of our Daughter Lynn Torin - Nature nourishes, enriches and lifts the spirit".

Signs of Spring in early-February! Don't know the name of the plant. If a reader does, please send me an e-mail.

Nice work, as usual, also lovely writing. It is safe to say that the presence of like minds, even so far away, is clearly responsible for my continuing to live another day on this earth.

Now let's see some use of that 12x, sir. :)

fond regards
