Savoring spring

Spring skies that roll past overhead


have yielded beautiful blues...and greens--





You must bury
your nose in it.




Tear mouthfuls
of delightfully
tender sprouts.






And absorb the scent of warming earth.









From winter's shelter,
life springs forth into sunshine.
Lovely, delicious.

I can just imagine the goats delight in finding fresh greens. The sky is quite cloudy. It almost looks like rain might be moving in.

Definitely a lot of savoring of spring going on ... at your place and elsewhere
