“It is spring again. The earth is like a child that knows poems by heart.” ~ Rainer Maria Rilke

Yesterday ushered in yet another first day of spring.  The difference however between this spring, and the ones in previous years ~ well I can't remember one this mild ~ and I don't think that I mean just in Central NY.  It had been an notably warm winter, and yesterday's beginning of a new season was marked by near 80°  weather here.  I needed only to circle the perimeter of my home in order to see the signs.

Birds and buds ~ and beauty.  I will set my worries about global warming aside for a bit and enjoy the warmth, the sounds and the scenery.  
Happy Spring!


  1. Happy Spring, Tracy!

    What a lovely Rilke-quote...

  2. What a beautiful stroll around your home! I love pussy willows and cardinals, moss covered stones and the flush of green that envelopes young branches. Welcome Spring!
