First Day of Spring!

Today, I continued my photo project started here.

This photo was taken this morning in the park. Notice how active the creek is! It was very high and had lots of rushing water from all the rain and snow we've had the last couple of weeks. Also the sky today was gloomy and grey - lots of low overcast clouds. So you'll notice those are the two reasons why the trees don't reflect in the water as nicely as they did in December, when everything was so dead and quiet. Very different now! The earth is active - swirling and churning and busting out blossoms and painting everything green! :)

Here is the same photo taken three months ago (on the first day of winter).

You can see the grass is not quite as green, the trees are bare, and what leaves they do have are brown and dead. I can't wait to see what it looks like in June!
What are your plans for the season? I am hoping to start a community garden with a few friends of mine and I am very excited about working the ground again. I haven't been able to do that in many years. I hope you are having a refreshing First Day of Spring!!
