In anticipation of tomorrow being  the first day of Spring, I thought a few images of hope would be appreciated by those still tormented by the last vestiges of winter.

Wishing all a happy Vernal Equinox.

For my friends back home ( or any other civilized climate) please make sure to note the delicate beauty of the Spring ephemerals, I miss them terribly in this God-forsaken desert wasteland.

  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 did notice the rhubarb, I agree with you; but rhubarb is so lovely who argue with its inclusion!
      I know it’s silly, but i envy your snow.
