In full bloom

(May 4 12:41 p.m.)

The greens have sprouted.

(May 6 12:10 p.m.)

And yeah, you know it’s a cooler climate when it takes until May for them to show.  But they’re here now.  And, as you can see, with the wet leaves, it’s been raining lately.

(May 3 3:32 p.m.)

One day— probably the 4th— it was partly cloudy, such there was drizzle at the same time you could see blue in the skies.

(May 6 12:09 p.m.)

Buds are appearing on the plant that grew through a railing of the front porch. Continue reading In full bloom

Quick update

The greens are out in full-swing— leaves, in particular.

The plant that comes up from underneath a porch railing has almost-full leaves now.  It’s interesting how soft immature leaves are.  I was able to capture them in focus a few days ago, but only after the use of a focal trick (passing my finger about the lens, forcing the smartphone camera’s auto-focus closer to the plant).

Such soft, hair-like edges… fibrous?  (Click the image for the full detail.)  The insects are on the case, looking for the carbs… but not in huge numbers.

It would be senseless, at this point, for the white stuff to fall, weather-wise.  (Snow, I mean.)

…Now… You may have noticed that I have been at a loss for words lately, not to mention my lack of presence. …I assure you, I have been writing… in amounts big and small, here and there.  But it’s been very slow.  I have two drafts that are lacking the right touch.  It’s been difficult— the writing coming out all muddled and… There’s so much material that just can’t be taken seriously.

Long story short, I’ve been kind of losing myself.  Emotional exhaustion is a term that comes to mind trying to begin what I have to say of late.  I’m not doing very well, not sleeping well… and well…

I’ll get back to posting, eventually.  Maybe next year, at the rate things are going, lol.  It’s already May 25, 2016.  On that note, I guess I should say, have a good Memorial Day. 😀 I’ll get the beach photos up soon, I promise. …But first, I must sleep. Again. 😔 G’nite.

Summer Photos

A few weeks into Summer, here, in North America; temperatures have entered the 80s (Fahrenheit) in Maine, and over 100 toward the West coast—even the North, enough to make it hard to imagine there being any snow in Fargo right now…

The season didn’t kick off very warm, though.  It rained June 22.

Aah, Spring pollination…

…in the mailbox.  I mean, that’s where pollen goes, right?  As allergy seasons go, any allergic mail men/women may be affected by the yellow stuff…

Well, besides the pollen, the chlorophyl is out in full swing.  More vibrant photos, yay.  Some, you can click to enlarge.  However, the flower I showed you last time has turned into this…

Bloomin’ Sprouting Spring

If you hadn’t noticed, I have been absent for the last couple of weeks.  This was due to running out of data.  I used to be able to tether, but no… Mysterious transfers killed the ability to freely do that.  A consequence of anything is better than nothing: things move sloooowwwly…and you may be hacked.

Getting back here—somewhat, in the attempt to write a post, I found my writing: lame.  So I’ll just leave you with some Spring photos taken over the last two weeks.
