Himself was inspired by the theme for this month, Look Up, had some great shots. Actually, he took a ton of excellent photos that I have been enjoying as backgrounds on my monitors.
Harriet was a young wife who died in the mid 1800s at the age of fifteen. Her tombstone collapsed recently in a local cemetery containing many old graves including those of Revolutionary War veterans. Harriet was looking-up at a bouquet of daffodils earlier this month which someone planted near her grave. I’ll be looking-up the local cemetery caretakers to see if we can raise up her headstone.
It seems every time we looked up this spring, down came the raindrops. One of our redwood trees caught a few drops before they could reach the ground.
Various pollen seeds challenged the raindrops for supremacy of the skies this year. Here’s a dandelion that did about all it could to contribute to the aerial combat.
A retired farmer recently donated his land to our county park system. This is one tree in the many acres of trees which we now enjoy thanks to his generosity.
We’re looking up from the bottom of our favorite sledding hill. It is deceptively peaceful on a quiet spring morning. A few winters ago we terrified a cousin’s daughter from Florida with her first sled ride down the back of the beast.
