Spring Wood

Heading to work each morning, I pass this stretch of trees and brook. Yes, one recent morning it was snowing. Snowing? Snowing! Listen, I want to hear the peepers in the evenings, see green-back frogs plopping off pond banks, and start catching polliwogs in old mayonnaise jars. Well, at least I'm thinking about that last one. I've had with winter! I want to see our backyard forsythia bush on yellow fire, as soon as possible. I think I got spoiled by our early spring in 2010. Gosh! Gee whiz! I hate March!

On a much more enjoyable topic-- My mother-in-law turns 90 today! Happy Birthday Anna (Babka)!

  2. Spring will rush up on us so quickly it will take our breath away. Just wait a moment. You'll see.

  11. It snowed here last night. Seriously. But, not as much as in this photo. A most happy birthday to Anna. 90 is quite a landmark birthday.
