This has been a month of beautiful sunny days and beautiful rainy ones as well. A great time to take long walks and enjoy the new beginnings of the early Spring.
All of the neighborhood creatures are in full activity.
The monarch butterflies are getting ready to leave the grove.
A family of birds is building a nest outside my window. the coloring of the bird is so close to the leaves in shade.
and the pelicans are flirting.
And in honor of the rain, this quote from the late John Updike’s memoirs:
Rain is grace; rain is the sky condescending to the earth; without rain, there would be no life.
