To celebrate Earth Day, Friday, April 22, I went back to another spring, five years ago, for some photos that make me smile this morning:
- Sunrise at my sister and brother-in-law's farm in Jefferson county, Florida. Niece Amanda will be married on this spot, just before sunset, next March.
- This bird had a nest in the fern hanging by my front door. She flew out as I was coming in with packages, keeping a vigilant eye on her nest. I had to water that plant very carefully, I remember - keeping the water to one edge of the plant. The plant lived though and when I got home from an out of town trip around the first of May that year, the baby birds had left the nest.
- Poppies from the mountain property that I love to visit in the Nantahala forest.
