Signs of Spring


Once in a while, I ponder what it would be like to live in the tropics, where I could grow fresh food year round.  At other times, I marvel over the deep snow of the north.  But the truth is that I adore our seasons so much that I couldn't live anywhere else for long.

Yes, this is another spring adoration post.  Trilling toads in the night!  Tulip-trees just starting to put out yellow-green leaves.  White dashes of serviceberry and pink patches of redbud on the hillside.  Dogwood flowers unfurling outside our window.  And the hillsides alive with the, color...of trilliums.
