“Bright March Morning”
“Bright sunlight beams through hills, still snow covered. March is upon us and the forest takes a deep morning breath. The awakening begins with spring’s bright light.” – Ed Lehming
It’s nearing the end of March. Much of our snow is now melted, yet patches remain in the deeper recesses of the forest to remind us that winter is not so far passed. If the typical weather patterns hold, we are still in for a significant snowfall before we slip into spring. At this point, I’m hoping all we get is a dusting before spring takes full hold.
In the gardens, the tulips and crocus are popping through the warming ground. They will soon be followed by the wildflowers in the cooler forests. Last year, that was a long, drawn out event, with cool dry weather. I’m also recalling our first full COVID lock-down and the guilty feelings about travelling the short distance to the trails. That guilt is gone and regardless of what the next steps are with our local government’s decision roulette, I will be out and enjoying this spring.

Aw, spring. Technically, it is spring, at least according to the calendar but we are still getting snow. I am looking forward to true spring! Lovely photo! Enjoy the woods this spring.
