It's Warm Again For My Morning Coffee Muses

It’s Warm Again For My Morning Coffee Muses.

There’s a high, leftover fog moving up above…

Alternately showing then hiding the sun…

It’s warm then cool then warm again as the sun comes and goes.

We’ve moved back into spring, pale green leaves on my mulberries have turned dark green.

The oak trees around the perimeter of my view have taken on the pale green the mulberries gave up.

The cypress tree has green swollen buds at the end of each twig.

The birds are busily searching for mates if they haven’t already found one.

The white oak is covered in catkins already, the red oak still bare.

No buds showing on the wisteria, the azaleas have been blooming for weeks.

The last tree to ever show color around here is always the pecans, they wait longer than any other species to commit each spring.

I’ll be glad when the full spring growth comes in, it’ll hide my neighbor’s shop and barns for another few seasons.

At least the past week has moderated the temperatures to a degree, though the high for the day is forecast to hit th low 80’s once again.

Gotta love winter…
