Spring

The past week has been insanely hectic and the coming weekend will be no less so. Both the kids are here and they brought friends. Hungry friends. And then asked whether they could invite more friends for Easter dinner. I said, "Sure, no problem." Because that is always the answer to that question.

So I don't really have anything to say, but thought I'd put up a couple pictures of flowering things. These two are the view from my front door:

I'm sure my neighbors won't mind that I'm putting a picture of their house on the Internet. It's at least prettier than the one on Google. The entire neighborhood looks like this, only more so. It's like driving through a fairytale, this time of year. 


And this is one I took the other night, just before the full moon, standing on the back deck looking up through the still mostly bare maple branches, waiting for The Wonder Dog to do whatever it is he does out there in the dark hour after midnight:

That's an awful lot of pink for one poor blog. Some purple in there too, methinks.

O! to be in the southeast, now that Spring is here...

Definitely pinks and purples. And some bright green too.

We are not quite that vivid in my neck but will be in a few weeks.

splorb: it's a painting technique using mostly pinks and purples and some florescent green.

Sigh. Those are such beautiful flowers! Spring has not sprung in New England yet.

Prombro: an unexciting and barely acceptable companion brought along to a formal social function purely out of desperation.
