It Happened one Day ...

actually, it happened today. 

Did you see it?  I did.  
I stood out on my porch until 1:14 Eastern DST to be sure that the sun managed to cross my meridian.  I was not about to trust the generic time zone this year.  Not after the winter we have .... endured. 

Happy Spring!

Actually, it does look like spring right this minute. 
Daffodil 'Tete a' Tete' coming up everywhere.

A few hyacinths.  Somehow they never seem as tall and "fancy" outside, but I love them still.
 Even the day lilies are breaking ground. 
 And, it appears that the David Austin rose 'Sister Elizabeth' is going to make it.

 Inside, there is joy as well. 

We had a guest for dinner last night, so i stopped by the local flower market for some house flowers, and wonder of wonders ...


Thanks to Bow Street Flowers i knew that the ranuncs from Israel are now available - at least in Boston - so i asked.  These are a bit over the hill, but they are all mine.  Life is good. 

Maybe we can make it past next week's potential snow storm and finally feel like spring.
