Change of seasons

After a bout of much needed rain, we are getting an early preview of Spring here in Northern California. There is change and growth all around us, and a sunny day like today yields an opportunity to see what's going on in nature's theater.

There is something so poetic about a rose growing through the deer fence around our garden---is it escape, or merely the symbol of a blossom doomed to become deer food?
The transition between the Winter and Spring is time for a burn pile to dispose of debris from previous years.
The wood stack is showing the diminishment of a Winter's need for wood stove warmth.
A neighbor's offer of free wood in return for removing the results of a felled tree awaits the wood splitter.
