“Life has pounded me down
and thrashed me around,
Time and time again,
But I always get right back up,
Because I still love life –
Just as the earth still loves
― Suzy Kassem
The continuing theme of the past few weeks, is ‘Saturated”, as evidenced by this dandelion seed head. Entire fields of dandelions looked like this, after days of non-stop rain and mist.
From my Sunday hiking experience, I think the only thing that likes this weather is mosquitoes, which rise from the grasses and ferns in clouds and fill my ears with their hungry hum, as I sit low to the ground to make photos of the current wildflower blossoms.
The next few days are supposed to warm up and be nice. That would be a great change, since I too, am saturated. Though, I expect teh mosquitoes will like this too.
