A pandemic can stop a lot of things, but not Spring. Saw these snow drops while out on a walk yesterday.
Since I’ve been working from home for almost two weeks now, I’m trying to get out of the house everyday. At the very least, that means a good walk around the neighborhood. When I was out today and saw these pussy willows in the process of emerging, I thought of them as a metaphor for our current situation.
Right now, most of us are in a social distancing “winter.” Someday that season will end, we will emerge from semi-isolation, and live our normal lives again. Until then, we have this pussy willow to help us remember it will not be forever.
I thought the colors and patterns of this blackberry lily (also known as a leopard lily) looked like they were painted on.
I was taking a photo of this brilliantly colored
zinnia Mexican sunflower when I noticed a tiny spider sitting on the edge of the stamen.
