Our house is blessed with a great view to the east where we can watch the sun's path throughout the year as it swings way south in winter and far north in summer, making us feel so much more tuned in to the calendar than we did when we lived in town and couldn't see the sunrise. On the spring and fall equinox, the sun rises precisely at the end of the road.
This photo is yesterday's sunrise; I missed it this morning. The red sky indicated rain --we finally got some wonderful, much-needed moisture last night that has encouraged a lot of things to pop out of the ground and green up visibly in the past 24 hours.
A bit unusual, because it often blooms when there is still snow on the ground.
