Green Grass   Leave a comment

On every ride, I’m driven to record the green grass.  Spring is so very short around here, and with the lack of rain (none is predicted for the next ten days) it’s likely to be even shorter than usual.  So when Kitty, Peaches, Xena, and I went out today, I was sure to have my iPhone in my pocket.

I stopped a moment at T. J.’s memorial.  She was a horsewoman who was fatally injured at this spot.  Someone had left flowers . . .

Then we stopped to admire the light through the grass.

We dropped down to the river and looked at the pussywillows.  They were past their best, but still striking against the dark water.

We checked out one of the new signs.  I’m going to have to look up the pirate spider.  I have to picture a little spider with an eyepatch and a peg leg going “Aaarrr”.

Here’s one of the new trail signs.  I wonder if the bobcats use “Bobcat Pass”

One more look, without Kitty’s ear.  It’s so wonderfully green.

I hope it’s still that way by St. Patrick’s day.  It might be — if it rains.

And I wonder how I got through a whole trail ride without getting Xena or Peaches in a shot.  They had a wonderful time, though, even without getting their picture taken.
