Happy Spring





Benjamin and Lily


Last March brought this day, so complete with its tromp through the woods and end at the river's edge, where we threw rocks to our hearts' content. The duck intestines that we encountered on the way back only heightened the magic of the day for our children.


I think perhaps we'll revisit that spot (sans intestines, hopefully!) today, enjoying the sun on the way there and the wooded respite from the March wind. Homemade peanut butter and rhubarb jelly sandwiches on warm bread, apple slices, fresh chocolate chip cookies, partially frozen iced tea, and fresh-squeezed limeade should adequately fill hungry bellies. And the view should adequately fill hungry eyes.


And we'll take along our Guide to Eastern Wildflowers.  But I'm NOT taking the Guide to Eastern Waterfowl and Their Guts.  I just can't, um, stomach it.


Happy Spring.
