To appreciate the growth – and we’ve had a lot of rain – here are two Spring photos.

My poem from May 24, 2019:

hosta plants grow
around the ash tree stump
an abundance of health
and new green

as if to say
we knew you would not
last the storm
we are here

there is new beauty now
new hope and a new time

And again today, plus hawkweed after rain in the same area of the yard.

Ellen Grace Olinger

blue sky and green trees

blue sky and green trees
what a comfort
to read near a window
and see the same view
year after year

much has changed

new learning curves
and all I cannot know
though I learn a little more
every day

and sometimes
what is stored
in the heart is enough

garden notes

birch tree branch
outside my study
window

many new leaves
and another part
of the branch
that seems gone
yet visited by a bird
this morning

lilacs almost in bloom
and violets by the door
