So many beautiful days to celebrate in May. The blooming of the earth. The warmth of the sun. I love Spring.
On our walk: New goslings.
I’m so excited to see any new baby birds at all this year. In the last several years, our park has hired a goose control company. The goal is to keep the goose population down to a ‘manageable’ level. What that really means is cutting the goose poop down on lake front lawns. While I understand the problem of overpopulation and survival, I hate that they actually go into the nests and kill the embryos in the eggs. That’s why I’m so excited this year to see a dozen new goslings all in a row.
Lilacs and crabapple blossoms.
I love my lilacs. The scent is amazing and I can’t help but cut bunches, put them in vases all over the house. Lilacs are the essence of spring.
But my sweet, pink crabapple has a special place in my heart. Those trailing little light pink petals are so delicate and beautiful.
New plants settled into my patio.
I had some mini-carnations show up from last year, I filled in the spaces with a few white impatiens and red salvia.
Spring is blooming. People are out and about smiling. The light and sun nurtures us all.
