This morning at 6:40 it was 39 degrees F, the sky spread with thin, gapped clouds.
Right away saw golden daffodils–they’re at their max bloom now.
Saw the fox across from the Dart plant that I almost always see here on Sunday mornings. It loped over the parking lot at a good clip, like I would have missed it if I’d come any earlier or later. Here it was, Sunday morning, and there was the fox. Like it had been waiting for the bike to pass. Still too far away to get a good shot, alas.
A little farther down on Main Street could see the sun coming up.
And the air smelled like flowers and young leaves.
Headed through the Beringer subdivision (where there was a smell of sewage) to High Cross Road.
Over the not yet planted fields
It was quite a bit warmer out in the open than down over the Saline Branch or along Brownfield Woods; could distinctly feel the the temperature difference.
At the edge of Brownfield were:
bloodroot (Sanguinaria canadensis)
Liked riding next to the stream between Brownfield Woods and the road.
On the Main Street in the way home passed a magnificent pink magnolia with blue sky behind it.
