The Greening of America*

*or at least of New London . . .

Way back in January, we had no idea how bad it was going to get.

Oh, and it got bad.

We got a little snow when our Florida Girl was visiting . . .

Snow! How delightful! How exciting and new!

And then, well, then the snow hit the proverbial fan. Hit it hard.

Lots and lots of snow.

Boatloads of snow.

This isn't our house or yard, but look at that Full Moon, wouldja?

There was just a lot of snow around these parts, for weeks and weeks and weeks and weeks . . .

. . . and weeks.

And then do you know what happened?

The snow started melting. Incrementally, slowly, but melting nevertheless.

And all of a sudden? As if was all just a bad dream?

Grass. The grass emerged and replaced the snow.

Grass that increasingly started greening up.

Just like that.

As if the whole thing was just a bad dream.

I call this one A Man and His Spiral.

And just when you thought it couldn't get any better, with all the grass greening up . . .

VoilĂ ! The Yellowing of America.

Once the snow we thought would be with us until July started to melt, didn't it go fast? At least it did at our house. Robins and and hyacinths and peepers appeared (or were heard). So yeah, it looks like spring. If only the temperature would catch up.

Congratulations for making it through all the snow, the seemingly never-ending snow. You did it!! Green, green grass, and colorful flowers are you reality now.


Love the completely snow-less Man and His Spiral shot ;)

Maybe it was all just a bad dream. Green is GOOD! Snow is super duper way highly overrated.

see you so soon! in the sunshine!
