In the Shire this week, the temperatures ranged from below freezing
to a summery 83 degrees yesterday. But they cooled considerably after a
strong wind blew in cold and rain overnight.
And so it is that we move between winter and spring
through February into early March.
I love the little weed patches that pop up in the grass
this time of year. They bring tiny spots of color
into the tangles of dead grass and dried leaves.
These tiny blue flowers are my favorites.
Yesterday a tiny honey bee moved
from blue flower to blue flower sipping nectar.
There are also bright yellow dandelions.
And miniature yellow buttercups.
There are many more vivid colors of late winter here.
I'll show those next week.
