For the Love of Spring

Today I take a break from the ongoing account of my travels to appreciate what I have right here. Today the air smells like honey and barbeque. The buds of March (er thanks global warming) abound and yet again my bonsai has surprised me by surviving the winter. The sun is shining, the stores are all closed and rehearsal is done... soon after this post I am packing up the dog and heading for the redwoods.

She wore her yellow sun bonnet
she wore her greenest gown

She turned to the south wind
and curtsied up and down

she turned to the sunlight
and shook her yellow head

and whispered to her neighbour
"Winter is dead"
--A.A. Milne
