Where did Spring go?
I have been practically bragging about how spring like it has been here but look what I found on my poor lilac yesterday! Yes, that is some soggy wet snow! Poor little lilac buds. I think they will be okay though. Today it rained all the live long day. That's okay. That's normal for here.
I love standing in this bundle of maple trees and looking up through the trunks. Almost dizzying.
When Rocky and I went for a walk, the neighbor dog, Sudz, decided to come along. Isn't he handsome?
I love the way some trees grow straight up out of the earth. Like a hair out of my scalp. Look at this big ol' tree, just sticking up out of the ground so straight and tall. Sudz is impressed. He thinks there might be a squirrel up there.
I want to welcome a follower, a fellow Oregonian, Tam Hess at http://artinflight.blogspot.com/. Thanks for coming by Tam, hope to get to know you better. She is a mother of 3 and yet she finds time to make some very creative and whimsical art. Check her out.
Today I have been listening to a new album by Anais Mitchell titled Hadestown, she calls it a folk opera. I am infatuated with it. She has a lot of guest singers helping her out such as Greg Brown (the reason I bought this album) Ani D'Franco, BonIver and others. I need to find out more about the basic story so I can understand this opera better. Greg Brown as Hades is magnificent, and Ani D'Franco is Persephone. Excellent music.
