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.
