Coming in to work this morning the light from the rising sun lit up the trees beautifully. Had I not been 30 minutes late already I would have stopped and gone for some shots. The thing that caught my eye though was the number of trees that were already show that first blush of spring green haze around the brightly lit gray branches. As I drove along it seemed that every fourth or fifth tree had that halo of pale green. The clear sky across our area was already showing the first signs of being pushed back north by clouds covering the southern horizon. I guess the prognosticators predictions are on the way to being fulfilled again as we get ready for another front to pass this way towards the end of the week.
I guess we are seeing the beginnings of spring…My azaleas have been blooming for weeks and the ferns in the front bed are already beginning to fill in.
We have had a couple of hawks wintering around our place. My wife has spotted them more often than I have. Every time I spot them they are winging away from the trees around the house so I haven’t been able to identify them yet. This time of the year we always have hawks around but usually they aren’t staying so close to the house. It probably has something to do with the number of squirrels we have running around in the trees this year.
