The Promise of Spring ..

How good the sunshine felt on my back as I did a preliminary weeding of the garden at noon today! I know rain and perhaps more snow are on the way tomorrow, but this two-day break from Old Man Winter was especially welcome. Soon the little blue flowers will be out under the maple. I thought to spray my legs prior to gardening, lest any ticks be about, hungry and attracted by my human scent. It may be too early but better safe than sorry. The first jonquils poked their way out of the soil and with them came the promise of rebirth.
