Spring Green, A Poem.

Spring Green

As I walked about today,

‘Midst the sunshine’s warming ray,

Right down there, on forest floor,

A bit of green, then some more.

So nice to see, this bright green,

First of spring, that I have seen.

This new growth, so fresh and pure,

Gives such hope, to all, for sure.

It is so nice, when I see,

Spring’s new life, in front of me.

Soon more will come, and abound,

Giving joy, to all around.

  2. We went right into summer…
    The heat is gonna be a bummer …
    the fires it brings
    And things that sting ๐Ÿ
    But summer is still my fave
    I love the ocean and to ride that wave ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜˜

    Summer nights are truly the best…
    possibly better than all the rest? Lol

    Summer – thatโ€™s my season ๐Ÿ˜€โค๏ธ

    We did jump right into summer lol – we are hot and tomorrow starting at 11am.. we have fire watch ALREADY!!! Here we go ๐Ÿ˜ณ (getting way too old for this lol)

    • Hey, great poem Trisha!๐Ÿ˜ƒ Yes, I love summer best too, it’s just so short up here, but sooooo beautiful!๐ŸŒž๐Ÿ˜Ž๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒผ๐ŸŒณ Wow, fire watch, that seems early.๐Ÿ”ฅ We’re doing okay up here so far, supposed to get rain and snow overnight!๐Ÿ˜ณ Hard to believe there is still snow in the forecast,๐Ÿ™„ this is May! But yes, we do get snow in May, and sometimes in June too.๐Ÿ˜ฌ Terrible thought really! Getting too old?๐Ÿ˜ฒ Can’t be, you’re not even 50 yet,๐Ÿ˜ you’re not old until you turn 65. At least that’s what I keep saying, maybe it should be 75 instead!๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜น๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐ŸŒž

      • Our summer is awesome too – except with the wind … because heat, dry Tinder and wind does not work well together ๐Ÿคจ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ

        Itโ€™s currently dry, hot and very very windy!! ๐Ÿคจ fire watch just started half hour ago.

        You should definitely send the rain – you can keep the snow lol โœŒ๏ธ๐Ÿ˜˜

        Almost there lol … but true that is not old – only life makes me feel that way lol

        But actually since I work with death – that is not old… I would say maybe 80+ then I can freely say that lol โœŒ๏ธ๐Ÿ˜˜

        But ya know who knows whatโ€™s gonna happen… Iโ€™ve had cancer and things … so never leave anything unsaid right? ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜˜โœŒ๏ธ

        Iโ€™m just covering my bases lol ๐Ÿ˜„โœŒ๏ธ๐Ÿ˜˜ #notmissingout lol

      • I would prefer to keep the rain and send the snow!๐Ÿ˜‚ It smells so fresh with the rain right now,๐Ÿ˜ƒ but it is cooling off fast this evening.๐Ÿ˜ฌ Well, as the saying goes, you’re only feeling as old as you are. No wait, that’s not it.๐Ÿค” You feel older than you are. Nope, not it either.๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ณ You always feel older than you look. No, that’s not it.๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ฌ Well, it’s a saying anyway, you probably know it.๐Ÿ˜ Who makes up these sayings anyway?๐Ÿ˜’ Just to make guys like me look stupid, that’s what it’s all about.๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ™„ Oh well. I’ll probably remember it later.๐Ÿ™„ 80+, I like that better than mine, I’ll go with that one too.๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜บ

      • Temps in the 80s would be so nice,๐ŸŒž๐ŸŒด๐Ÿ˜Ž we don’t usually get that until late June or July.๐Ÿ˜• But it should still be warmer than it is now.๐Ÿ˜ฌ We might get up to 50 today,๐Ÿ™„ but somehow I doubt it with that north wind blowing still.๐Ÿ˜ณ You don’t need AC yet, that’s just nice warm temps,๐Ÿ˜› enjoy!๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿคธโ€โ™‚๏ธ Wow, drying up already, that’s not good.๐Ÿ˜ฒ Very wet here right now.

        Oh no is very very hot – AC needed!!

        My area is like little house on prairie – in winter is green cause all the rain … spring summer and fall dies and turns yellow – fire tinder

        The cityโ€™s out here rent goats from local farmer and place them around the city to eat everything lol

        Food for goats – helps both farmers and cities ๐Ÿ™Œโค๏ธโœŒ๏ธ

      • In the 90s?๐Ÿ˜ฒ Wow, beautiful weather! Why spoil it with AC?๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜น
        Hey, that’s a cool idea, use goat’s as a way to prevent fires. Hmm, good place to go into the goat rental business, make a fortune!๐Ÿ˜
        We were up to 46F today!๐Ÿ˜Ž๐ŸŒž๐Ÿ˜‚ People are still wearing winter jackets and gloves in the morning.๐Ÿ˜ณ Sigh. It will get warmer. I hope.๐Ÿ™„ This might be a cold summer, happens sometimes.๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐ŸงŠ

      • Mine over here is HOT HEAT!! We have HOT HEAT

        Yours is different lol … I promise you – where in Canada are you – are you East or West?

        Is also earth friendly and supports our local farmers โค๏ธ takes care of the cities and grasses … win win all around โค๏ธ

        Hahaha yes I remember cold summers – my family from Maine and Massachusetts is same ๐Ÿ˜

        I will not be having a cold summer – mine is hot with hot heat โœŒ๏ธ

        Wish I could trade you our hot heat for your rain lol โœŒ๏ธ๐Ÿ™Œ

      • Hey, all heat is hot heat.๐Ÿ˜Ž๐ŸŒด You just get a lot more of it than we do, a lot more.๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜ณ We sometimes get summers where a hot day is 75F!๐Ÿ˜ฌ But we can also get summers where it hits 100F, and we can have weeks of temps between 90 and 100.๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜ธ๐ŸŒž We haven’t had that for several years now though.๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ™„ Just like our winters getting longer and colder, our summers are getting shorter and colder. Sigh.๐Ÿ™„ I live in the wrong climate. A nice tropical island is for me!๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜น๐ŸŒดI live right in the middle of the country basically, but a bit more west, then north. North of Minnesota.๐Ÿ™‚
        Right now I would be happy with even a week of your heat.๐Ÿ™„ It was snowing here this morning!!!๐Ÿฅถโ„โ„ Snowing!!!โ„โ„ On May 6th!๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿ˜ฒ Think I will hibernate a bit longer.๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜น

      • There is a difference between east coast heat and west coast heat …

        Ours is hot dry heat
        Theirs is wet heat (they have humidity we donโ€™t really)

        We having really LONG fire seasons lately – lot of drought

        Yeah I would totally be hibernating in any cold areas lol

        Have a great day! โ˜€๏ธ

      • Yes, that’s true, dry heat is better, humid heat can be hard. Here we mostly have a drier type heat, which is odd considering all the water we have with lakes everywhere, rivers too. ๐Ÿž๐ŸŒž
        Our fire season is usually from the end of May to the end of September,๐ŸŒฒ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐ŸŒณ though officially it starts and ends earlier and later.
        Thanks Trisha!๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜บ๐ŸŒž

      • Our fire season can be whenever we heat up can range from February to May … and last until November ๐Ÿคจ

        This year started in May

        So letโ€™s see when ends ๐Ÿ˜ณ
