The early morning light is one of the reasons I always enjoyed walking at dawn or closely thereafter. This photo is from McDowell Forest Preserve in Naperville, Illinois, a lovely mixture of forest and Midwest prairie.

Today’s a travel day as I head west for some extended grandson time. 🙂 See you tomorrow (or later today.)

Fuzzy Friday

No, I’m not referring to my state of mind (although you may beg to differ) but to the sun highlighting some fuzzy beauties. My brother and I used to call plants like these “tippy toes.” Not sure why, but I still love the name.

Morning light.

“We went down into the silent garden. Dawn is the time when nothing breathes, the hour of silence. Everything is transfixed, only the light moves.”

Another month has begun.  The weather in Chicagoland is typically spring-like:  warm, cold, rain, a bit of snow, sun, thunderstorm…mix and repeat.  Underneath it all, I can feel spring waiting, edging gradually into sight.  Daffodils and daylilies bravely poke their leaves out further each day.   The cold is a little less frigid, a bit more cool.  It’s coming and one of the blessings is the longer daylight.  The downside is you have to get up earlier to catch a sunrise shot.  The upside is you can enjoy this one while still in your pj’s, sipping your morning cup of coffee or tea.  How good is that?
