Today was very special for me -- my first time out with my camera in 2 months after a long recovery from an infection that kept me mostly off my feet. Mixed in with the joy of communing with nature once again was a worry that I might have lost my edge. I pushed that thought away and simply enjoyed the morning.

It's been such an unusually warm winter. Already the temperatures are in the 40sF and dawn hasn't even broken. We're expecting to reach the high 60sF by this afternoon. The flower buds are swelling on most plants, and some have even been fooled into blooming. I watch the Prunus mume (flowering apricot) trees by one of our campus lakes as they dress our gray days in vivid pink blossoms, and I hope that if the weather is to be as mild as it's been, that perhaps THIS year, the fruits will survive any remaining winter winds, and I'll be able to make apricot preserves once more. It's been well over four years since any of their fruits have survived a winter.

 

Still, I know those folks in the north are tired of it, but I still would love a good snowfall. Somehow it just doesn't seem like winter without at least one dusting of white. Barring that, I am ever grateful for those folks who do have snow, like my friend Fran in Canada, generously share their white worlds with us. If I can't experience the softening silence of the white stuff, thank heavens I can vicariously share a bit of it through photos and paintings. Thank YOU again, Fran, for the inspiration and for allowing me to have a bit of snow this year through your photos and my painting of your marvelous world. Please see Fran's incredible flickr stream!! (www.flickr.com/photos/fahansen/6703711969/in/faves-linfrye/).

 

May your day be warm and wonderful -- sun, snow or rain!

ウメ(梅)- 朱鷺の舞(ときのまい)

Prunus mume

Japanese apricot

梅は、古事記や日本書紀には全く登場せず、万葉集でも8世紀に入ってからの歌になるので、7世紀の後半に大陸に渡った遣隋使や遣唐使、僧侶が苗を持ち帰り、その後急に普及したものと考えられる。万葉歌人はこの初春に香る花に異常なまでの関心を示し、特に大陸の影響を受けた貴族達は、梅を詠み込んだ歌を多く残している。

than back in 1964 :-) Roger Daltry

This shot is dedicated to Sue Zart who was (was????) a great Flickr friend for a while until she decided she should concentrate on her work. Clever decision. Reasonable decision. NO, IT'S A MUST decision!!!!!, I know that, I have known that and have thought about it all the time, but I am still here in the Flickr world, and upload one or two (or more) photographs everyday :-(

 

Sue, this is to show how much I admire you for your strong mind. I've been thinking of you. One day I would like to follow you :-))) (not a stalker!) xxx

This was taken while I was in Tokyo, using my Flickr friend, akialoha's Planar T* 1.4/50 ZE, not f1.4 now but f1.8. Still difficult to focus but I am getting more and more fan of this lens LoL.

Journal -- My front yard yesterday -- covered in snow. We're in for another few inches tonight ..... The ornamental grasses, pines and birches giving bits of color to the grey. The plunge back to freezing weather killed all the blooms on my Prunus mume (flowering apricot) ... I hope the fig trees survive ...
