Springing into Spring
“It was one of those March days, when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold:
when it is summer in the light and winter in the shade.”
“The naked earth is warm with Spring, And with green grass and bursting trees
Leans to the sun’s kiss glorying, and quivers in the sunny breeze. ~Julian Grenfell
“Is the spring coming?” he said. “What is it like?”…
“It is the sun shining on the rain and the rain falling on the sunshine…”
―Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden
Let your joy burst forth like flowers in the spring…
“Only from the heart can you touch the sky.” ~Rumi

Lovin’ Loveland Bike Trail
Last night was perfect for a 12 mile bicycle ride on the Loveland Bike Trail which is located only 10 minutes from my home!

A bit farther up the trail this guy and his beautiful dog were willing subjects. Look at the blue eyes of the doggie…gorgeous! I’ll bet that’s a great way to meet women!
What do you think of my beach cruiser bicycle…purchased on Craigslist for $60 and it looks brand new! I love the little basket!

This is a “Hickory Horned Devil” that eventually morphs into a “Royal Walnut Moth” or “Regal Moth”. It looks like it has sunglasses on! It was about 4 inches long by 1 inch wide. It was laying on a hiking trail at Hocking Hills State Park, Ohio.
