Nature’s Humor

Speared Pin Oak Leaf
Speared Pin Oak Leaf

After the crocus, daffodil and tulips poke through the ground spearheading the invasion of Spring, other plants are quick to follow suit. Slow at first, but momentum builds fast as Spring sheds its dark and gloomy shroud of Winter.

Before long there is a vertical stampede of growth.  Everything is popping up providing a noticeable daily change in contour of the flower bed.

The Naked Lady plant in this photo grew so fast, it impaled the dry Pin Oak leaf.  I thought it was an exclamation mark on Spring’s way of saying, “Take that, ole man Winter!”

Thought for the Day:  There has to be evil so good can prove its purity above it.  Buddha
