Spring is here

...I woke up to -30 (-38 with the windchill), so I went straight out and sure enough, -30 in spring seems much warmer than -30 in winter. I came back in, got dressed, had coffee and headed back out. I had to climb a giant snowbank to get this pic.

I posted my first pussy willow pic of the year on Facebook on March 12. They've opened a bit more since then.

To celebrate the arrival of spring, I plan to spend the day finishing To Show and To Tell: The Craft of Literary Nonfiction, a fabulous new book by Phillip Lopate. Then I'll dig into Portrait Inside My Head, his new book of essays.

It was well worth climbing that snowbank.
