long time coming

There is always music amongst the trees, but our hearts must be very quiet to hear it.


our trees are catching up to the calendar and finally budding out with flower or leaf....it's been a long time a coming but a change is finally here. alleluia!

sam cooke's soulful tune a change is gonna come (1964)

photo note - i swear this squirrel was telling me to take his picturewhen we were out on our walk today!

Is that a red squirrel? Are they still widespread on your side of the pond, they are very rare over here now?

despite the reddish hue to the coat, this fellow is most likely a fox squirrel (or it could be an eastern gray squirrel).

there are red squirrels in ohio, but they are confined to conifer forests and like over there quite rare. but more rare because of their diminished habitat. unlike the more gregarious gray and fox, red squirrels i find are quite shy.

here in more urban settings all our squirrels are either fox or eastern gray but their coats are very variable!

oh my, more info on squirrels than you ever desired! as you may tell i am a bit nuts about squirrels!
