"Spring makes its own statement,
so loud and clear that
the gardener seems to be only one of the instruments,
not the composer.”
~ Geoffrey B. Charlesworth
This is the first full week that has felt like SPRING! A full week of open-toe shoes; a full week of lightweight jackets (mostly for the train).
There is new growth popping up all around me. This morning I stepped on campus to see my first tree that is fully in bloom. Beautiful!
I have two new dresses that feel very much suited for the season. As always, my morning pictures (pre-5 a.m.) are somewhat dark. Sorry about that. The black and white dress has hummingbirds! The floral dress I wore out for my birthday dinner. I might look dainty here but I am so ready to get my hands in the dirt. I might need to plant some annuals this weekend.
Next week is the university’s spring break so while I do have to come in a few days for meetings, my days will be a bit lighter which is good because I volunteered to become a judge for one of the youth programs and now I have eight adolescent books to read in the next few weeks!
