Vernal Equinox Day 1 and 2 in very few words.


SLS 030805

Snow sifts from leaden sieves,

It powders all the wood,

It fills with alabaster wool

The wrinkles of the road.


It makes an even face        

Of mountain and of plain,—

Unbroken forehead from the east

Unto the east again.


It reaches to the fence,

It wraps it, rail by rail,

Till it is lost in fleeces;

It flings a crystal veil


On stump and stack and stem,—

The summer’s empty room,

Acres of seams where harvests were,

Recordless, but for them….

Emily Dickinson

The color of today is gray and streaked with slanted lines of falling snow.  The temperature is COLD.  Yep, the First Day of Spring; snow is falling, the furnace is running.  Today looks and feels like any of the many days of cold and falling snow  we’ve experienced all Winter.

2nd day of Spring.  Blurred visibility due to straight down falling snow.  Cold.  Furnace running.  Again, everything is covered with snow.


This is what I’m looking forward to on this wintry spring day.

    Love the third picture Gretchen, summing up all our expectations!
    Shame about the weather though. If it’s any consolation, it has turned cold again here once more, with frosts predicted for next week. Not as bad as yours, I agree, but not like Norfolk in the spring at all.

    Best wishes as always, Pete.

    Hope Spring comes for you soon, Gretchen
