May 5

I am thinking of my mother today, May 5 -- her birthday. She particularly appreciated the flowers and new growth of springtime. I thank her for instilling in me a love of nature. She taught me the names of plants and animals; she taught me to observe and appreciate the natural world.

I am celebrating the arrival of spring, and will soon post some photos here. I have just written a column about signs of spring.  [Update: The column was posted online Sunday 5/11/14 with the title Celebrating signs of spring.]
