hi there.  spring seems to be taking her sweet old time this year, don’t you think?  i spent the weekend in connecticut and it was bright and sunny on sunday, but quite chilly.  i don’t think it hit 40 degrees, especially with the strong wind!  despite a pesky cold (which i seem to get every year at this time), i forced myself to get out on sunday morning and take a walk with my camera. in doing so, i crossed something off of my spring list – visiting daffodil hill.  the daffs are probably 2-3 weeks away from their peak.  but since it’s my only chance to visit this year, i forged ahead and found a few brave flowers that, like me, were defying the cold temps and enjoying the sun.   the best part was avoiding the crowds that descend during late april, and a nice quiet walk around the property, enjoying my time away from the city.   afterwards, i warmed up with mint tea and then an easter feast with my family (which included molly‘s ‘winning hearts & minds’ chocolate cake for dessert…)

i also crossed another thing off of my spring list this week – check it out here.

and when i returned to brooklyn last night, i had a package from sandra waiting for me with a fantastic surprise inside.  how great … tack, sandra!

i hope your weekend was nice, too.  i’m eagerly awaiting some warm temperatures…. and trying to be patient.  it’s tough!
have a good day.

    I feel the same way about Spring. Seems to tempt for so long and then take forever to get there. And those Nike’s…wow.

    Isn’t that cake amazing? I’ve made it more times than I care to divulge . . .
    Just recently found your blog, and am really enjoying your photos and links.

    I must say, I’m impressed by the number of things you’ve accomplished from your list. It is nice to go through life with a sense of direction, isn’t it?

    We’ve got a bunch of daffodils growing in the woods around our house, and I can’t get the pictures right to do the scene justice. I really like yours of daffodil hill.

    A trip to Daffodil Hill looks like a great way to spend a Sunday! (The third photo – pussy willows? They’re one of my favourites.)

    Great daffodil photos. They’ve popped up all over Copenhagen too.
