Home Run

Snow Drops - Perce Neige

Today is the first day of spring - usually Syracuse celebrates with a major snow storm. But March 20th, 2010 is a HOME RUN. A sunny, warm and glorious end to a fine week.

We earned it. Emmanuel, thanks for the photo.

Wedding season has started and we are thankful to be so busy. Congratulation to Chandra and Jason. I'll bet they never expected to have outside photos! Of course, we will have photos at a later date.

But today it is all about Glorious Spring. I'm getting myself a bunch of red and yellow Parrott Tulips for the table and taking a walk in the back yard. Maybe the rabbits and deer missed a few of the bulbs I planted last fall...we'll see.

Go Orange.

Sunshine makes me Daffy

There are two things I like about March. Daffodils and Basketball. But it is not that simple. If Central New York is grey and snowy, I am not so compelled to crave billows of bright yellow. But, when the snow melts and the sun is shining, nothing satisfys like Daffys.

And when the Orangemen are in Madison Square Garden I know the Robins will be singing from the treetops.

But when SU is on a winning streak and I have a big bouquet of Daffodils on the coffee table...well, it's all GOOD.

Le Printemps est la?

The First Sign of Spring?

Isn't this a slice of modern life! And all this time I've been expecting Robins. My Friend Emmaunel Vaucher documents his everyday observations. But he is a native of France living amongst us and perhaps does not know that Robins are the first harbinger of the long awaited season.
