Greetings dear readers!
I am grateful to be with you today. There is much afoot in the world and it is a good time to reach outward, when actually going out is, at least for now, less possible.
So here I am, with you. And it is a chilly spring day. Which means that while I try to keep my ice-brick feet warm and wrestle with the many big events of the day, I will remind myself of all the small wonders of spring.
This is coltsfoot (Tussilago farfara), a small yellow wildflower in the aster family that blooms in the most unusual spaces, growing even right up the edge of asphalt . They are among the first to flower in spring here, lifting those sunny little faces even if I am shivering on my walk by.
It is a good time to be grateful for every sign of renewal.
Readers, I am as grateful for your presence as for the flowers, after my time away. I’m intending to stick around this time; I hope you will, too.
As always, your thoughts and comments are welcome – they are moderated, so they may take a little while to appear, but I read them all and appreciate that you were here and took the time. Thank you!
