  1. Any Spring flower pictures that you can post to make me jealous of your latitude?

    • I was thinking of you as I took pictures and I will post one soon.

      Is it that bad up in Minnesota?

  2. This year, it hasn’t been too bad. We are getting very close to the day when in the morning the trees in the river valley are still brown. But, by afternoon, there is a noticeable green tint to them. That day is my favorite of the year.
