Lately, we’ve been having warmer weather, although right now the skies find themselves as stretched out grey masses hanging over tiny shelves of blue. It is also supposed to be warm today, but I have to admit I love waking to a day where the sun shines bright, the sky is that beautiful shade of blue and the only clouds are a few, big puffy ones streaking across the sky. I think it is those clouds that stretch from one end to the other across the horizon that get to me. I feel stretched out, tired, longing for color. Odd, isn’t it – how weather can make such a difference, even in promise you hold in your pocket toward a wonderful day. Man, I need to get out more. 🙂
I know that things are starting to bloom. Yesterday, I not only spied a gorgeous butterfly in the yard, but our tree out front is starting to bud. Next week, I am hoping to take so many pictures that my camera will die from exhaustion (at least temporarily). It is going to e spring break and man, we have needed it! Anyway, here are some other photographs taken at the gardens during the winter. I hope you enjoy them.
