You may have noticed (or perhaps not) that posts and replies to comments have been a little shy around here lately. Trust me, it hasn't been by choice. Life has a way of kicking you around now and again. Let's just say that March is a month Treebeard and I were glad to see the last of. It was a month of anxiety, necessary separation and painful loss. We are a little weary as a result. But, I am an optimist and I have to feel that things are on the up-swing. For one thing, our house is finally under construction! Yes, folks, we have a foundation and the framers are due to start on Monday. I spent one day this week picking out flooring (hardwood, carpet, and vinyl), cabinets, and countertops. Having lived in park housing my entire adult life I've never experienced having a choice in such things. Heady stuff, don't you know.
Anyway, I hope to start posting things of swampy interest here in the very near future. Everything is greening up, blooming and busting out. Butterflies are flying, dragonflies are emerging and pollen is coating everything in bright yellow. Spring is my favorite season and I plan on sharing -- even if I have to resort to pilfering more photos from Treebeard :>. (Do you know that that stinker saw a woodcock with five chicks the other day?!?! Such excess!)
Meanwhile, I'll leave you with a couple of my pictures of a dragonfly emerging. They're sort of representative of how I'm feeling.
