Didn't Do A Darn Thing
Sometimes my plans go by the wayside; yesterday I didn't do a darn thing. In the front yard the Florida native maple trees we planted last year are blooming and the bees were gathering their pollen. I did plant my snow peas and radishes but nothing was accomplished in the studio. I sat in my chair and stared out the window and thought about making something but I didn't. A cardinal came by and pecked at the window.
I opened the window to let in some fresh air and noticed the robins arrived early this year. The robins were hopping from branch to branch in the Carolina cherry laurel and happily eating the berries. I could hear what seemed like, what probably was, hundreds of them singing in the tree and in the wooded lot next to our home. I just looked back at my post from last year and the robins arrived on February 5th, so maybe they're not so early. I guess Spring has sprung. I can't believe we've lived here almost two years. The time seems so long and yet so short. Happy February and White Rabbit to you. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
