The Park

Children laughed and played within the city park. Swings swayed with giggling playmates, A whoosh of boys flew down the slide. A group of toddlers played quietly in a sandbox as their mothers discussed the fun and frustration of motherhood.

The call of birds could be heard among the trees, Ducks glided across a rippling pond. Bees sipped nectar from a patch of wildflowers by the edge of the pond. A group of teenaged boys shouted and scuffled as they played basketball on the court.

The old lady shuffled along beside the shrubbery where a mother dog peacefully nursed her puppies. I can believe it! She sighed.

    Your season is clearly further advanced than it is chez AnElephant! Here in Scotland the trees are struggling to bud and the daffodils still deep in hibernation.
    You create a dream ……

      We have had very little snow in the eastern end of the Southern Here in on the Eastern Side of the Southern Appalachians-we have had little snow, but lots of cold-late season cold, in fact… but daffodils are dying down, red tulips are in full bloom and the early weeds or herbs” like “Selfheal” are in full bloom. I imagine lawnmowers will be out in a week. Early blooming decorative pears are blooming, buds are growing bigger by the day. I have always though my ancestors picked the perfect place to live. Too bad the wealthy from everywhere else have been lured here by money hungry developers-within my lifetime, they have ruined the rural feel, increased taxes on land my family has lived on since before the Civil War and such until many of our young adults cannot afford to lived here. That, to me, is wrong. To see land that my kids seemed should have a historical right to own be slurped up by wealthy, while my kids have to go way out in the county to afford the same thing is just wrong. I know how theNnative Americans feel…
