present

For the Daily Prompt: present.

Our Rhody Fest is in May, with the Grand Parade, tricycle races, the bed race, and my Sunrise Rotary “Running of the Balls”. But I took this photograph two days ago: this rhododendron is not going to wait for May. No time like the present and in full bloom in February and gorgeous. A touch, a promise, harbinger of spring!

For photrablogger’s Mundane Monday #133.

I took this in 2004, in the spring. My daughter and a friend are in the tent, having a tea party, with spray whipped cream and a china tea set. The tree is just budding out. There is a ladder up to the tree platform, built with the help of my daughter’s grandfather. He is 91 now.

Is this mundane? What is mundane? We are entering the dark part of the year hear, wet and cold. We hope that spring will return. Happy Halloween……
