While I was out taking photos of some green things, I noticed Babycat strolling around the porch railing. She was in the shaded part of the porch and as she came around she seemed to hesitate then glide slowly into the sunlight. When I looked at Babycat in half-shadow-half-sunlight, I thought it echoes this Winter-Spring season that we’re experiencing. Her hesitancy is somewhat like us enjoying the sun but not forgetting it’s still winter and a few months until the warm Spring weather is here for the year. Or something like that.
Our blanket flowers and snap dragons are still green. They’ve stayed green all winter, I think that’s interesting. I knew the blanket flower held it’s green through the winter, but not the snapdragons… of course that could be because last summer was the first time I’ve grew snapdragons and this is the first time in decades that I’ve been around them in the winter…
Our last few daffodils are growing. They haven’t bloomed in years, but still they grow each year (probably just to remind us that the winter isn’t over and there’s still snow to come yet…)
Our day-lilies are starting to grow. This is sad for the lilies because they’ll get froze out. I fear they may be killed out completely, they never have, but I fear they will.
If one wasn’t looking at the bare trees, I think it’d be hard to tell it’s full-on wintertime and 40°. It drops down to below freezing at night and yet the lawn is continuing to stay green.
I wish the grass had the same green-power in the hot drought times of Summer.
Wishing you all good health
& a relaxing rest of the week.
