the first of march



Just now I let the dog out for his final spin around the "poo-tio." A light snow is falling and a sugary dusting is already coating the ground. It has been a snowy winter, even by Maine standards ~ and though I can't tell you the exact inch tally, I can tell you the bottom line on our bill for snow plowing.

But the overwhelming piles of white are beginning to subside, and patches of soggy earth are revealing themselves. Yesterday morning I heard birds chirping ~ and I have it on good authority that a red-winged blackbird has been spotted in the neighborhood. Dare I say it? Dare I . . . ?

Best not. It is snowing after all.

(Oh, and I do promise to tell you about the dog. Soon. He's just so hard to pin down for a portrait session.)

I was just complaining of the cold this morning but we haven't had much snow to speak of and now I feel guilty hearing about your extra snowload! Spring is on the way (I'll say it!).

pve ~ it is incredibly beautiful, even in the last days of winter.

Stefan ~ more snow this morning! Schools are closed and I'm planning to work from home today. It sure doesn't LOOK like the first official day of spring is just a few hours away.

Greer ~ we had a flock of robins in the yard a few days ago, about 30 of them! It was amazing. No birds today. Just the white stuff. Hope the spring brings good news about that rather long paper you are working on. . .
