I am so spoiled!!!
The first gift came when i was still feeling sorry for myself.
A flock of Lapland Larkspurs flies right by my window.
One poor thing hits it, but as you see quite alive, and on his way rather fast.
These birds are on their way, to the Arctic or high mountain tops. They stay around all day.
2nd gift: right in the puddle at Kip's (the neighbor) are at least a dozen Northern Shovelers(see photo), a Pintail and those great, Lesser Yellowlegs.
I am just not going far today, still it keeps coming.
As i lay my face on the warm rock to be caressed, if it was the skin of a lover.
I see the moss blooming.
And there is more, this a bryophyte blooming.
Same plant, i will find out tonight all their proper names.
Feeling happier now, i walk down the hill and receive yet another gift.
A yellow rose!
probably a Potentilla nivea
from indeed the rose family
And last but not least, thanks for friends lifting me!
