After my shameless whining yesterday, the sun popped out and the temperature shot up to 65F. I don’t think it was a cause and effect relationship but, WOW, was it lovely. I managed to spend two hours in the garden, still frozen and snow-covered in many places, raking aside the remains of winter. Spiders, flies, one bee, a flock of a hundred Canadian Geese honking from on high as they flew North, Red Wing Blackbirds singing and, in a matter of hours, a transformation of life, mine and the Vermont earth’s!
The Daphne, which now looks like this:
…could “soon” look like this!
A new beginning every year
After a winter’ snap
Under a blanket of snow
