Springtime and Starlight

Last night was a starry night, a sky full of brilliantly twinkling stars. There’s nothing like a ride through country roads if you like watching stars. Fred and I talked about his very brightly the stars shine in the country where no city lights mask their beauty. And the temperature? It couldn’t have been a more pleasant, springtime evening.

How wonderful it is to be able to enjoy springtime and starlight, both at once. It marks the beginning of a fresh, new season. The breezes are warm. The fragrance of spring blossoms fill the air. The stars twinkle in the sunset sky. Front porches are occupied again as people enjoy the spring weather. Finches and other birds make their way to feeders filled with fresh seed. The trees begin to bud. Daffodils, crocuses and red poppies break through the ground, filling fields with color. And one might even experience a fair amount of sneezing from the swirling pollen.

In spite of the pollen, springtime is definitely a time to celebrate new beginnings, to thank God for yet another season of mild weather, to enjoy watching nature starting over. This year I plan to enjoy several evenings of springtime and starlight.

I would love to hear your comments.
