We still have a fair amount of snow
My neighbor across the street has crocus and snowdrops in front of the house. Here’s where our crocus grow (left) and scilla (right):
These photos are from last week… I’d say there’s almost no snow now where the scilla should be, and about 8 inches where the crocus come up. That blip of blue in the photo is the top of a 12 inch ruler.
a new decade
Perhaps I’m lazy because last Saturday I turned 50. Rather quietly… Had a lovely dinner, co-workers took me out for lunch on Thursday, there’s a great massage coming, received some sparkly baubles for my ears and hand made chocolate, and a friend brought tulips…
They were such a bright note of spring in this otherwise snowy landscape that I kept them around past their time… for the past few mornings I thought “I should toss those”, but then the morning sun would shine through them and the color was still lovely.
The next night went to Reid State Park to see the “super moon”… clearly a small handheld point and shoot without a tripod is not the way to capture a beautiful image. But it was a great time! And a lot of people came
(can ya feel the power of the waves???)
And here, some video…
I am rather amazed that over 200 people looked at that last one… these really are just silly…
and unknitting and reknitting and unknitting…

And Seamus, that Canoeing Cat, soaking in a bit of heat…
