As my part of the Earth tilts toward the sun, little by little every day, the changes begin to show, even if some days, like this morning’s gray and chill, I want them to be faster!
One of the values of photography is that I can “stop a moment” and look back on it from a later time. I can compare what was flowering last week or last year at this time—and then work at finding the patience to simply be here now enjoying seeing this moment.
This is some of what I’ve been seeing over the past week.
Clouds are part of Spring, sometimes gorgeous at sunset like these…
…and sometimes full of rain and intensity.
Trilliums waiting for a bit of warmth to open
Lichen, moss and quartz, all part of an old stone fence, are the ultimate in “be-here-now.”
The bumblebees have returned, at least on warmer days, to find nectar in early flowers like Pulmonaria.
Shad or serviceberry nearly ready to burst open.
And again, now set against the rich, late afternoon light—how gorgeous!
These are stunning captures of moments in time, John–I’m especially caught by the moss, lichen, and quartz–so many textures and tones that shift with the light. Thanks yet again for your gift of “paying attention” 🙂
