Well, my long winter — actually, autumn and winter — thaw, is over. The trees are alive with buds and blossoms, and the birds are chirping and trash talking (I assume). I’m working up the motivation to pull out the old DSLR, reverse a lens, and rig a flash, during this time of the modern day plague.
Unfortunately, I’ve already missed the closed portions of these beautiful silver maple tree buds/blossoms (see photo after the break or even better, this post), but the blossoms are out in full. And a couple of crocuses have burst forth. Things are Life goes on, even as it doesn’t for humans.
Fortunately, I have these seasonally appropriate photos in my photo bunker. Hope everyone is able to stay safe, healthy, and secure, and if not, I hope you’re recovering and/or getting the aid you need. See you soon.
