One night this week was just so beautiful, warm and calm, I had to take a drive.
I was welcomed into the countryside by fields and fields of rolling velvet green.
The wee bird in the centre of the photo below was enjoying the evening at least as much as I was.
As was the man checking his mailbox (you can just barely see him having crossed the road at right).
Soon these fields will be grown high with crops, colours changing, darkening, browning under the summer sun.
But for now, for the fleeting now, we are in the deepest of spring.
Drink it in.
