Shining Trees at Sunrise
I am so enjoying this lovely warm break from clouds, fog and drizzly days.
Spring has returned.
The Earth is like a child that knows poems.
~Rainer Maria Rilke
I thought I’d share this lucky capture as the sun rises, lighting up the oak trees on the hillsides. Stunning…
And an eager calla lily who just couldn’t wait!
Gretchen Del Rio
There were black calla lilies growing around one house where I lived. I picked some and brought them inside. I’ll never do that again because they give off the odor of cat feces. I looked all over trying to find the source of the odor and blaming my cat the entire search. I stick to the white ones now.
Ha, I have never seen a black one but am wondering if it’s a different flower all together. These have naturalized over the century since they were planted. They have no fragrance to speak of but they are pretty if I get to them before the bugs.
Poor cat…. hope she/he got a treat for being good! 🙂
Happy Spring – so gorgeous my friend, the shot is pure perfection! Great seeing you ~
Happy Spring to you too– my favorite season and we hit 80 today. I am happy to be back blogging again. Hoping I stick around and perhaps can get back to making some paintings again. Xxx
Very excited to see new works from you and that tells me you are doing well, the Spring-like weather and rain agrees with you, and best of all perhaps you are really on the mend!!
Things are better than earlier last fall. We almost sold out and moved but in the end, I was so depressed, I decided it wasn’t the best move for any of us. Maybe someday but not anytime soon. It is very stressful to sell a ranch and I had no idea, having never done it. Makes me shudder to think about it. I frankly don’t plan to go down that road again. So yes, the weather makes me happy since it means we should have a decent crop and spring is spring, who doesn’t love spring? 😉
To sell a ranch that took your blood, sweat and tears – a lot of love and dedication would be incredibly difficult, not too mention all the legalities, etc. that is involved. Perhaps the rain and ease up on the drought will help the burden this year. Spring is the most beautiful time for renewal~ the best nurturing there is. Have a beautiful one my friend.
I love the quote!!!
