Change of Seasons

Change of seasons....

Mother nature is truly amazing and I am always awed by the sheer beauty and the routine and ritual that each season has... they are timeless, eternal, beautiful and so awe inspiring....

The year starts off stark, pristine white and bare waiting and preparing itself....As the bare trees tower over the barren landscape it's limbs naked of its foliage lonely and bereft, as the clouds darken, the chill deepens, the heavens open up and lets beautiful soft fat snowflakes like little cotton candy drift down from the skies a beautiful curtain of white fluffy snow as it drifts onto the trees, covering it with a blanket of white, drifting and creating a soft fluffy carpet where you can sink yourself in the cool soft white snow.... at times we have ice pelting down from the skies as it cloaks the trees and the landscape in hard glistening sheet of ice, beautifully dangerous, slick and yet when the sun shines after an ice storm, the ice glitters like crystals and again you are slack jawed at the beauty of mother nature....

Then comes Spring, where little peeks of green sprout through the frozen tundra, where the once barren trees are finally turning color showing signs of life, covered with tiny baby green leaves, bursts of color as flowers pop up dotting the landscape with various hues of colors, tiny flowers to waxy and beautiful vibrant flowers, sprouting all over, signs of life after a bleak barren winter, another on mother natures cycle of life.....

Then comes summer, a time of maturing of flowers, fruits, hot sweltering sun, lush green, wholesome fruits, trees laden with their finery, flush in their prime of life, bestowing shade and food , beautiful flowers, and hot bright sun...

Then comes the most spectacular season of all - Fall - where the leaves get ready to hibernate for the winter, blazing in their glory of red, yellows, oranges, pinks, mauve a virtual smorgasbord of vibrant and dazzling foliage as it changes colors on the tree and as it falls down creating a carpet so colorful, that no human can really capture the depth and intensity of the beauty....

I thank my lucky stars that I am able to be apart of this and experience the myriad beauty of mother nature. Truly blessed...Thank you:)
