vernal equinox

(B, holding our spinach seeds in the sunshine)

I've been so jealous of all the spring photos posted by other bloggers over the last couple of weeks.  Last week we saw the first signs that spring is really on the way.  We had warm, sunny weather.  I spent Saturday cleaning all the autumn out of our flower beds.  I was delighted to discover that the daffodils and tulips were actually a good way up once I cleared the dead leaves away.  We spent most of the day outside.

Then, yesterday, on the first official day of Spring, I planted spinach with B and C, hoping it can withstand any remaining chilly weather of the season. 

Today, it snowed the whole way into work, and actually started accumulating out in the suburbs.  I really must learn to start respecting the weatherman.


  1. Weatherman? Meteorologist or weather *forecaster* erin. ;)

  2. Meteorologist and weather forecaster just don't have the same ring to them, though, do they? I know, I know, that's what they all say...
