maples bloom under a full moon
The maples are in full bloom and a full moon last night was bright over Harris Creek. It’s the “worm moon”, reminding us that even though the days remain cold, all kinds of life stirs even when we don’t see it….trees budding, crabs swimming up the Bay, riding on the tides toward our tributaries, worms moving about underground, doing their thing. The goldfinches are in molt at the feeder, a brighter yellow color each passing week.
Just for a while, noticing the small changes each day, till spring swoops in and grabs us and we’re off, running, doing, rushing again.
One year ago today – cherry blossoms and maple leaves. Not this year.
But on Twitter this morning, a Montreal nature lover was welcoming flocks of geese back to her home with pics of Vs and delighted exclamation points.
Everything is right on time.
