Each day is greener here. Spring seemed a little hesitant at first, but now I see changes if the flora and fauna each day.
After the bushwhacker guy worked here last month, I noticed that he'd left a small tree just across our fence. When I looked more closely I realized it was a magnolia. We've never had a magnolia on our property. The closest magnolia to us is almost a mile away and I can't imagine how it got here. And yet, there it is. He also left a redbud that I had no idea was there. Both the trees were hidden in a prison of privets.
We walked earlier this morning because the weather forecast said the day would be warm...into the low 80s. It's not steamy here yet, but it won't be long before we'll be able to bake biscuits in the glovebox of my truck.
As we walked, I stepped over and shot a picture of the redbuds beside our creative space. The pine cone in the picture was one that fell from a nearby pine and became tangled in the redbud branches.
I used my mad money that I make from my newspaper columns and selling books to buy a new weedeater today. Not only does it have its way with weeds, but when I attach a small saw blade, I can cut timber :) More to follow about this angry tool.
