I had expected such an early Easter to be chilly, but I was happily wrong. Spring was on its best behavior! Yesterday we celebrated with the Jrs–tons of food (that we’re still eating) and a short egg hunt for the kiddos…
We worked outside all day, clearing down through the woods. I am thrilled that I have uncovered a Gnome Home. I pulled a lot of vines away from the door, and I’m pretty sure it will attract some of those healing, benevolent fairy-creatures soon.
Perfect Home for a Gnome…
I’m flying out to NYC on Tuesday to spend a bit of the EE’s Spring Break with them. Nothing is really planned for the trip, but we always find fun together.
I hope your Easter week-end was Peaceful and that the week ahead is full of the same…
Daylight Savings Time…is the extra hour at the end of the day worth the total discombobulation of my body? I just wonder why we fell back in the first place. I’m sure I love the extra sun, when it’s there, but the time-change thing seems random…
The rains have greened up the lawns and budded up the trees and shrubs. The daffodils have been in bloom for over a week and the tulips are reaching for the sky. Peonies are popping up and the daisies and coneflower are stretching out. I bought a new garden journal and I’m going to keep it going past planting time this year, I promise.
The orchid show is still going on over at the Zoo and I spent both mornings this week-end meeting and greeting the visitors there. I started back at the Yoga Center today and will be feeling it tomorrow, I’m sure, in a good way. Like the flowers, my muscles are waking up, too.
Seems like Winter is on its way out, but I know all too well that you can never tell when there will be another snap of cold and even snow. Still, the birds are starting back North and the home-birds are stirring around for nesting material.
I started a Photo 101 class with WordPress last week. I’m posting the pictures daily over at the MadWoman site, so if you’ve wondered where I am, look there. There is a theme and a lesson each day Mon-Fri. These are my submissions to the prompts of: Home, Street, Water, Bliss, and Solitude…
Sonnystone Acres 3/7/16

The Photo class continues for 3 more weeks. I start a Writing class on Thursday. I’ll be working over at the Zoo greenhouse propagating plans for the plant sale on Wednesday. Seems like I go from Zero to Sixty quickly after the weather breaks.
7 more days until the Spring Equinox!!! We’re going to make it, I believe.
