IMG_7881It rained hard during the night and was still sprinkling when I took these pictures, but it is supposed to be 50 degrees today, and look at what I found.
IMG_7886The creeping sedum — ever so humble, but ever so bold!
IMG_7887On the south side of the house, an early crocus – though that is redundant, isn’t it? Soon this bed will be crowded with them, and with elegant snowdrops.
IMG_7871Even the ignored pot, so recently piled-high with snow, brings on a sense of spring.  I can’t wait to see what ‘s emerging under those leaves.

If you’re in the mood to celebrate the Equinox with a smile, take a quick listen (less than 2M) to the Detroit Elementary School’s cover of Pharrell’s ‘Happy’.

Happy Spring, fellow winter survivors!

    Ah, Dee, it was 70 here today and the grass had to be mowed because it was knee-high–one of the advantages of living in this corner of the world. Enjoyed seeing your circle/feet post, but the quote at the end is very optimistic, for it assumes that there is progress…having studied history, herstory and having observed social change for a long time, I can no longer put my faith in the idea of progress…wish it were true, though!
    best, nadia

      I share the sentiment which is probably why I want to see such optimistic words in print. I think I might have believed that some new world order was on the way at one time…

    The sky is beautiful and bright here, but our hearts are heavy. It’s been a hard day and so I welcomed the beautiful crocus (crocuses are happening in blog land!) and the voices of the children especially. Thanks Dee.

    I am almost afraid to go to your blog and see what’s going on, Nancy. Sorry that it’s so hard.
