Beautiful country. Nature has many cathedrals not built by man.

One of them which I treasured greatly when I lived there was the Dogwoods blooming in the shade of Georgia pine woods. Little explosions is delicate white as far as the eye could see.


So well said. Nature is sublime.
"He is risen".
"He is truly risen".
Happy Easter.


Thank you, TTG. We relish the blossoms on our camellias here in Southern NJ, one pinkish white, now fading, and the red one, still going strong, plus the overarching redbud in full flower that is their backdrop at the edge of the woods dropping toward a stream.

Let us celebrate the return of Spring with this chanson by Claude le Jeune, Revecy venir du Printan:



Given with all the mickymouse going on..I'd go with "just sits." Justa nice bit of reflectioning/writing. Thanks, ted

Out here in the California southern desert the Ocotillo are in bloom. bright green leaved tendrils with flaming orange flowered tips.


Enjoyed this. Thanks

Beautiful piece, TTG, one that expresses so much of what I feel -- and thanks for the shout out! The mayflower (trailing arbutus) is one of the most beautiful and fragrant flowers out there, and it is something so special when it returns each year (of course, about a month later up here in Southeast New England than the clement climes of the Chesapeake, so I am still eagerly awaiting them; at my friends' in Maine's house they have to wait longer still!).

Wonderful writing that truly says what is in our hearts. My best to you and yours and all the SST community in this strange spring.

Stay well and healthy, everyone!
