Light is Everything!

Closed for Business

The definitive sign of spring on the prairies – besides wood ticks –  is the crocus. Yesterday when Jimmy was out running his new greyhound dog, he and I were kibitzing about this and that. I looked down and behold! I saw some tiny little friends just starting to poke through the grass. This is the last sign that spring must finally be here, despite the snow we had yesterday. The crocuses don’t lie, even if they are closed for business. 😉 I don’t blame them for not opening up yet. Too darn cold. The forecast for today is Cloudy with sunny periods. High plus 4. UV index 5 or moderate. 🙂

    Jason, thanks so much for posting this today. I was ready to start packing for the trip to the Sunshine & Heat Lutheran Church in Phoenix! Now I’m encouraged that it’s only a few days of warm sun and we’ll be taking photos like crazy and picking off ticks.

    • Amen. Any day now, any day now. We will have nice weather. I’m hopeful. I’m confident. I saw flurries come down again today…
