A Cool And Bright Spring Morning Coffee Muses
After yesterday’s almost not storms, this morning’s cool, breezy, spring perfection was not expected. Unexpected as it may have been, it will be both appreciated and enjoyed.
I’m being serenaded by our new neighbor this morning, the Carolina wren is singing for a mate from the sound of things. He is still bringing nesting materials to the birdhouse.
It looks like almost all of the pecan trees have decided to call it spring too. Each and every one has started showing at least some leaves… The younger ones are mostly fully leafed out.
I find myself getting lost contemplating my surroundings and not thinking about words on the page… I guess that means this post is done and I’m going to just sit and enjoy the morning over a fresh cup…
The Calm Before The Storm Morning Coffee Muses
It looks like there will be storms… they aren’t moving as fast as the prognosticators were foretelling, but the radar shows them gathering to the west. The wife gave me a quest for today so I think I should cut these muses short and get moving before the skies open up…
So I’ll listen to a mockingbird sing as I finish my morning coffee and then hit the road running while I still can….
Waiting For Rain Morning Coffee Muses
The prognosticators are foretelling of thunderstorms overnight and into tomorrow. Hopefully, they are closer to right this time around. We are beginning to be a bit dry. And their foretelling last week missed the mark by a few miles at least.
I am seeing a Carolina wren going back and forth to my bluebird house under the cypress tree. So I guess someone has claimed a home at least.
Today I think I’ll start a new custom of two images… The large image at the top when you follow the link to my webpage is the view from the end of the porch facing east. You can see all of the spring flowers just across the property line.
Time to get busy… chore day.
Quiet Mostly Cloudy Monday Morning Coffee Muses
It’s quiet on this Monday morning. Almost no traffic sounds, no people sounds, even the birdsong is subdued. Sunshine breaks through the clouds only to be hidden once again. The temperature is in the low 70’s, and as long as the sun is covered it’s cool under the ceiling fans. Blue jays still visit their spot under the cedar. The bluebirds calling in the distance still make me smile. The cardinals clear ringing call still cuts thru all others from multiple sides of the yard.
And… as you can see, green predominates the landscape. The multitude of different shades and hues is amazing. The layers of light and shadow, new green and old, even the pecans trees are turning green.
Last night I discovered the movie Sustainable on Netflix. A really good documentary. Makes me wish I lived in central Illinois… If you have a subscription to Netflix and sustainable agricultural is in any way on your radar, do yourself a favor and check it out.
