hyacinth 
the flavor of spring
snow covered
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
    A spaced out doodle on Bamboo Fun
while I try to remember what spring rites might look like.
Ten degrees and more snow today.
My memory gets thinner and colder and maybe even older.

Susan, I can feel your desire for
warmer weather in this. I haven't
been around snow for quite a few years. Nicely said.

I feel sympathy for you in your cold surroundings. Here our Spring has made tentative inroads into bloom: primroses on the banks, daffodil buds about to burst, fat leaf buds on the hawthorn.
I don't know where you are, but be sure, it WILL come.

Saw some forsythia blooming the other day. Somehow they surprise me every year, like fireworks that you can't stop yourself from gasping over.

I love your last line... I am feeling the same way up north a bit more. Beautiful illustration.

I'm sitting here in Spokane nodding my head and relating to every beautiful word you've written here.

It is even chilly in Bakersfield today. Enjoyed the simplicity and the longing in your words.

I love the sense of anticipation that this shows. It is magical when the crocus and hyacinth begin to defy snow.
