A blue day
a blue jay
and a good beginning.
melting snow --
No, the Snowdrops are not blooming in my garden yet. At least I can't tell if they are, as they are buried under a couple of feet of snow. (This photo was taken in December 2006.) It depicts what I hope to see in a couple of weeks.
"There comes a day towards the end of March when there is but little wind, and that is from the west or even south-west. The sun has gained much power, so that it is pleasant to sit out in the garden, or, better still, in some sunny nook of sheltered woodland." Gertrude Jekyll, "Color Schemes for the Flower Garden." I can't wait for such a day. Hopefully, it won't be long now. Come on spring!
