Spring is in all her glory…here in Austin.
The chirping of the birds…if only, we would stop and listen.
Gather the rose of love whilst yet is time. – Edmund Spenser
There is simply the rose; it is perfect in every moment of its existence. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Bluebonnets are the state flower of Texas and they bloom during spring…to capture my breathe away.
I can’t enough of the beautiful roses in bloom everywhere.
Tomorrow is start of spring in the Northern Hemisphere. Happy Spring!
Today, weather was great in Austin.
So, finally, I shed by my long hand shirts, my woolen coat, my woolen socks, my warm cap, my fleece pants and donned a skirt and flip flops.
This persimmon tree went completely bald in winter.
Last couple of days, it has been sprouting leaves.
I could write an essay on how I find the sprouting completely magical. But, I don’t have to.
Because Dr. Ian Malcolm Jeff Goldblum said everything there was to be said in “Jurassic Park” – “I’m, I’m simply saying that life, uh… finds a way.”
My huge crush on Dr. Malcolm (and the writer behind him Michael Crichton) hasn’t died in the 2 decades. It is because he said one of the most brilliant phrases ever said about life.
Today was a beautiful rainy day in Austin.
Wherever you are, stop to smell the roses.
Green is the prime color of the world, and that from which its loveliness arises. – Pedro Calderon de la Barca
All the beautiful shades of green in Spring.
It just looks like some road side yellow color flowers.
It is also more than that.
As I take a walk with the boys discussing something utterly foolish….this bright colored flower bush catches my eye.
It adds a spring like feel to late summer.
It also add a spring (pun intended) to my walk.
I observe. Therefore, I am.
