Hidden away in the woods, we find a small area of water, enclosed by the first flowering of spring growth in the surrounding trees.
We might have passed by, but then we notice three nymphs dancing by the pool.
As we stop to admire the art work, we are entranced by the vibrancy of the colors, the reflections in the pool, and the evidence of new life all around.
We recall the story of Hylas, charmed by the beauty of the Nymph, and never seen again, as he searched the woods for his lost love.
Beauty is all around us; sometimes it is easy to see, as in this woodland idyll. But sometimes we have to search for the beauty that we know is there, and sometimes just to search is enough.
We had no particular plans this weekend – so as we were out and about we thought we’d stop at this nice nursery we know and look for idea for a shady corner of our front yard. We got talking to a saleslady, and she had some idea, and we had some of our own, and somehow or other we came away with a Japanese Maple, 3 Hydrangea and 4 Hosta.
And since we had then, we had to plant them – here are the pictures to prove it!
Our little neighborhood of Kingsbury Square put on a wiener roast on Saturday.
It was cold and bright, with the leaves crunching underfoot, just the right combination for brats and hotdogs – and popping corn over the fire – and it was a great opportunity to stop and chat with people we normally just pass in the street, welcome new arrivals to the neighborhood, compare notes on football and soccer, and generally get to know each other a bit better
Here are the pics.
