Cape May Trees the Victims of a Knit and Run? News at 11.
Julia came home from school and raced upstairs, as per usual, and burst into the room where I work. She stopped in her tracks and said, "Mummy--it smells really good in here." It took me a moment to figure out that I had the window open for the first time since last Fall, and what she was smelling in the room was good, clean, fresh air. So I cast off my work and we went for a little walk around the block together to get more of it. Indeed, it does seem like Spring is at last making a valiant effort to make an appearance.
Here's a bird's nest from last year that, for the first time in months, isn't filled with snow:
Dried hydrangeas--just coz I love hydrangeas to pieces. They're beautiful both when they're dried out and when they're flaunting life.
Our toboggans had a good run this year, but now they're grounded. Time to put them away.
We just HAD to stop for a quick game of hopscotch in the schoolyard...
..and hang out for a bit near the park entrance. Deliberated going down there, but it was waaay too...
Yup, definitely a sign that Spring may actually be around the corner!
