I’m Still Here

My sincerest apologies for such a long absence away from the blogosphere. I fallen behind because my plate has been very full these last few weeks. I’m working on the flower calendar, I’m preparing for a photography exhibit that is happening on June 9th, and I’ve been very active on Facebook speaking out about politics. With all of this going on I have decided to go on a blogging hiatus for the summer and will return in the fall. Take care, everyone! See you when the seasons change. 

The First Day of Spring

First Day of Spring ©Jackie Brooks“The first day of spring is one thing, and the first spring day is another. The difference between them is sometimes as great as a month. The first day of spring is due to arrive, if the calendar does not break down, about the twenty first of March, when the earth turns the corner of Sun Alley and starts for Summer Street. But the first spring day is not on the time-table at all. It comes when it is ready, and in the latitude of New York this is usually not until after All Fool’s Day.” –Henry Van Dyke
