First Signs . . .

All of a sudden, the First Signs of Spring are everywhere.

There's Spring Training.

Let's Go Mets!
There are the UConn women tearing it up all over the court. 33-0 going into the NCAA tournament.
Go UConn!
And the UConn men? Well, what can one say about the UConn men? I think the only thing more excrutiating than staring at my laptop from 9 p.m. until 1:30 a.m. last night, "watching" UConn lose in the Big East Tournament in Sextuple Overtime -- that's 6 -- would be being at Madison Square Garden itself, watching it live, which is where MB and The Dowd were.
Sextuple Overtime. Ach. Sorry, kids.
Anyway, back in our 'hood, while there is still some of this:

Oh, wow, you have spring flowers? Man, we still have at least six or eight more weeks until we see some of those! I am soooo jealous!

Those photos look much like my front yard-- the wall and the Autumn Joy but alas, only crocus foliage. There is a lone hyacinth fully open in my front bed.

And those Huskies, ach! Well at least I got some cleaning and paper sorting done at that ridiculous hour. Then, of course, sleep wouldn't come.

Thank goodness somebody is seeing spring somewhere! And thanks for sharing; hopefully those photos'll get me by until spring makes it to Germany.
