My first hyacinths have opened up. Their beautiful smell is filling the air on the side of the house. Only a few plants are up now. Within the week there will be fifteen. I will smell them every time I come home or leave.
That’s the Pirate Ship of Pony Pasture. Ethan and I visited it this afternoon – I think it will be gone by tomorrow at lunch. Yesterday the river was at 6′. When Ethan and I visited today – when I took that picture – it was at 9′. Tomorrow around noon the forecast is for 13′. As my friend Mijo said, “The ship is ready for sailing”.
About Jay McLaughlin
I am a rehabilitation counselor. I have many friends with autism and traumatic brain injuries. They help me learn new things constantly. I hike with dogs at the James River in Richmond - a lot. I've completed an Iron distance triathlon a year for 11 years. My most recent was in Wilmington, NC in November, 2013. I currently compete in mid-distance triathlons. And work and hike and take pictures and write and eat.
