We have had some amazing skies the last four days. First the clouds danced across the sky, sometimes angry, sometimes funky. Lovely sunsets followed. Friday we had howling winds, a tornado watch, thunder, lightening, and downpours but it led into a stunning rainbow and a beautiful sunset. This weekend it was lovely, warm with blue skies . I started to see the first of the Canada geese leave for their homes up north. The geese I saw leaving were up a couple thousand feet and heading north. I took all the pictures shown in the last three days.
Life is funny with its twists and turns. I had a man reappear in my life unexpectedly this past week. What he shared with me was not what I was expecting. I need to decide if I want to open my heart to him or remain as acquaintances as we have been the last few years. My heart leapt in my throat when I saw his face again. I am torn. It’s interesting but when I am most unsure in my life is when I am most in tune with animals. Be it the pets I care for or animals I encounter in nature.
While out photographing the sunsets the past two nights the neighbor’s cat joins me. I enjoy the companionship and am touched that she wants to hang out with me. I often wonder what she sees on our walks. She seems to know when I need company.
I have seen many kingfishers, eagles and robins lately. I was excited to see a pileated woodpecker. They are always stunning. I’m looking forward to the spring peeper frogs. I love their calls most of all.
Well now that I’ve reached the end of this post I have realized I think I’m ready for spring as I am sure most of you are. Do you have any favorite sites or sounds that spell spring for you?
