Sunshine through ginger ears



The sun shines warm though the wind is cold.




On top of the hill we walk together while a great buzzard wheels and mews then hangs on the edge of the wind. I wish for wings.




The rock is becoming a stage for flowers. Foxgloves grow tall and bees dip in and out of their speckled purple cups.




Stars of purple-blue squil still hold a reminder of spring. Soon the cuckoo will be quiet again, then away for another year. For now the sky is stitched with a pattern of swifts in flight. We sit on the cusp of summer.

Foxgloves, bracken, gorse -- I can almost smell the fresh, windy air. As for that golden ear, it needs a kiss, if it wouldn't be too undignified for him -- perhaps a scratch of the golden cheek instead.

Spring is a very wonderful time of year! Sadly, the changing of seasons where I live is just from warm to hot.
