Spring around the corner

Every morning the sun rises a bit earlier and sets a little later.   I look at the mess that is my yard and gardens and I want to grab a rake or a shovel or anything to be outside making it prettier.   Unfortunately – or fortunately some things just take time and patience.  The bulbs I planted last fall are still resting, hopefully as restless as I am.  The birds are beginning to trickle back to the feeders (the European Starlings (Sturnus vulgaris) and English House Sparrows (Passer domesticus) have been here all winter.)

So for now, I will dream of multi-colored tulips, sunshine yellow daffodils and work on my weaving.


Flowers from our house in Rochester, NY – sweet memories.
