Spring

Ask and yea shall receive! Four, count them, four days of sun! Never mind the 20mi/hr winds and the brief snowfall yesterday morning, because there have been four gloriously sunny days.This week has been a balm for the winter weary soul. And to celebrate I thought I would post some pics of the courtyard garden bulbs that I planted over the course of several years stretching to meet the sun. New beginnings and spring! Image

Sunny spells

Today is yet another frozen spring day. So instead I am choosing to focus on a weekend from a few weeks ago when it was sunny and joyful. Don’t get me wrong, bleak can be beautiful; we get a lot of that here. (More on that later) But today my heart and body are longing for sun… and Vitamin D. So here are some photos of a great walk we took with our dog Bonzo.
