  1. Lovely post. Beginnings here in Connecticut, the joyous portent of spring.
    Your post inspires me!

  2. Thanks for the post, and for the last few too. It seems late spring for the Tissot, perhaps. Is that not rhubarb, going to seed? My, very nice though, makes me think spring will actually arrive. My gardens are still covered in snow after a really wonderful winter. With a capital W.

      I know it’s silly, but i envy your snow.
