A Second Look--May 28, 2014

Are you one of those people who everything reminds them of a song? Or is that just me? A thunderstorm was kicking up as I sat down to write this and here is what I started to sing. (Luckily, I'm at home where I can sing as much and as loudly as I want.) 

The winds are blowing and the rain is falling, 
But joy is filling the air
Troubles and sorrows are gone forever,
But song abounds everywhere.

I was reminded of this song by the gusting winds, but I also see now that it has the perfect words to go with how I often feel when doing a Second Look. When I am stressed, I can forget about my troubles for a little while as I explore the birds and the bees and the flowers and the trees and the moon up above (Oh no, another song crept in). I think it's time to stop singing and get to the business at hand.

Here are some things I saw this week during
a Second Look.

The Siberian iris around our wellhead are in bloom.

Different bearded iris are also blooming.

The peach tree didn't have many blooms this year, but there are a few peaches starting to form.

The purple sage are in full bloom.

Little blossoms that fell from the holly tree above.


You can see the blue feathers are starting to form on the baby bluebirds. It won't be long now before they leave the nest.

You can see how much the birds have changed in less than two weeks.
