Signs of Spring


Last weekend was bright and sunny, chilly in the wind but warm in sheltered spots.  It felt like all of creation was waking up and stretching.  Not that we've had a bad winter, far from it, it has been very mild, but even so the long dark days take their toll.  I went out looking for signs of Spring in Saltaire.  There were plenty of people about, enjoying the space in Roberts Park. (See my last two posts for a short biography of the man after whom the park is named.)  The daffodils are beginning to flower in sunny spots (and they're a cheery sight, aren't they?)  It was warm enough, too for a few folk to sit outside the Half Moon Café (though I did secretly want to shout "Go in, go in and look at my photos..." - ha!)

  9. Daffodils are my favorite flower - probably because they truly represent springtime, after a long winter (at least here in NW Wisconsin). But today it was 80 degrees. Unbelievable! 75 degrees was the record high set in 1895 or something, so this is a record breaker!! What a beautiful photo, Jenny.
