Strange Flowers Of Spring?
The really funny thing about the pictures today is that I forgot I had taken them. In fact, I had forgotten I had even been out there. It was only a few days ago. So I was assuming that whole time that I had nothing to bring you. My real problem since my car accident and bump on the head is that I forget so many things very easily.
The few times I've been back to posting more often has always ended so far because my memory looses its grip on what I was doing. As you've seen, I can go days or even weeks without a new post. I still like writing this stuff, but it is still hard for me. The good thing is that as bad as I just made it sound I have actually improved quite a bit, so I know there will be a day when I'm back to normal. But let's get back to these strange flowers.
The funny thing is that what I was really looking for when I spotted these things was birds. The animals are coming back out! I heard birds all through the forest that day when I got these. And there were even some squirrels screeching and yapping throughout the forest. All of those cool animal sounds made me extremely excited about the coming spring.
And I want to say again for all of you doubters, SPRING WILL BE HERE IN LESS THAN A MONTH!!! As a matter of fact, I will even go so far as to say it will be here in less than two weeks. So your still not convinced of my awesome predictive powers? Just to prove it to all of you I will predict it down to the very day! Spring will arrive on March 20 2011, 7:21 P.M. EDT. How's that?
So are these strange flower looking things the first flowers of spring? I doubt it. I'm not sure they're really even flowers. I tried looking them up in a little field guide to trees that I have, but I found nothing. Maybe it's the guide. Maybe it's me. That's why I feel more confident looking my stuff up on the web. There's not much about trees there either.
Oh, a couple of things before I go. I finally remembered to finish my next story over on my Rat Tales blog! For any of you who like amateurish horror, you'll find that my rat tales are a tasty treat. The other thing is that Nature Center Magazine has undergone a redesign. This news is a few days old but it's still news. We get quite a bit more visits through search engines there than through blogs. And I'm proud of the new look. I designed it myself! :)
See you next time!
