Nature Inspiration When Spring Arrives Late

A tidbit of Nature, this hemlock pinecone basks in the sunshine.

Nature Walk

It always happens this time of year. The anticipation of spring consumes those of us who are in the Northeast.  Winter just doesn’t seem to want to let go and we are so ready for it to let go!  There comes a point, however, that spring can no longer be denied and that point is now!  Things still look pretty brown up here in the North Country, but if we look hard enough, nature provides plenty of inspiration!  I had the pleasure recently of taking a walk with a friend through the forest.  Little bits of nature provided joy and sparked the imagination!

Migration

Well, the birds are gone, except for the hardy souls that stay to brave the winter!  The barn swallows and all of their cheerful chatter are off on their fall adventure to elsewhere.  The geese are gathering in chevron flight and pointing south.  The lovely songbirds of summer have left behind the chirps of crickets to fill in the void, that is until the first frost.  After the frost there’s almost a deafening silence.  Perhaps it is a welcome rest after a season of busyness.  Until next year my feathered friends!  Cheers!
