Seasonal Marker

Poinsettia 3

I open the door to release restless pups, and they gallop into the yard, dawn breaking overhead.  I open the refrigerator to grab peppers, onions, garlic, and ginger, with the gorgeous low-on-the-horizon beams flooding my kitchen.  I pick out dropped leaves which lie among my flame red poinsettias, no matter how carefully I attend their food-making needs.  These observations mark mid-winter.   We in the northern hemisphere are inching toward equinox, toward sprouting bulbs and passerine symphonies.

Wordless Wednesday: Bear Foot in the Woods

I know.  Somewhere out there, beneath the Milky Way, Ira Sayles’ whiskers are quivering, trying to contain his chuckle.  What would have been a common sight in his childhood makes me dash for my camera.  A Night Visitor leaving gifts!!!!!!!!!!!!

So I guess Black Bear are not hibernating yet.
