There was way too much news this morning and none of it pleasant to read. If we reported what is happening in the non-human world, the Sunday Times would be three or four times as thick and all of it would be a joyous celebration of life and death on a grand scale. On May 9th we had 3″ of snow and this week the temperatures will be in the 80s. Bees buzzing, flowers opening every day, warblers among the new leaves, the hillsides a haze of greens, all of it driven by the sun and the wheel of life.
Here are a few of the photographs that might appear in the news of the natural world. Mother Nature “tweets” her updates even more frequently than our president does and Hers, unlike his, are based in reality.
Onward, Spring, Onward!
