It’s definitely spring in Charlotte, North Carolina. I spent much of today sitting out back writing an article on how God can help us manage our stress. Fortunately I didn’t feel much of any stress throughout the day as I was writing. 🙂 On the contrary, it was wonderful relaxing in the 80 degree sun-drenched day sitting under a big umbrella on my small patio.
I know it’s spring because of the flurry of activity in the air. Today was my first sighting of the year of a Ruby-Throated Hummingbird. He came to the feeder no less than a dozen times throughout the day. And then there’s the chickadees family. I suspect that yesterday the babies hatched in their nest. All day yesterday and today I watched the parents fly to the nest( in a box meant for Eastern Bluebirds) with green worms in their beaks to feed the little ones. If it’s quiet out, I can hear the babies chirping as they are being feed. Ah….. another visit by the hummingbird as I type this! Cool!!!
The flowers are popping up nicely. Within a few weeks the perennials meant to attract and feed the hummingbirds and butterflies will be doing their magic. And I’ll have a few roses in bloom about that time.
All this is definitely conducive to writing some good material… and it’s good for my health!
I had a great run today, albeit it a little warm. Now I just have to get out again on my friend’s boat and go fishing for some large mouth bass!
Hope you have a great day! I did!!
