"I'll be back~~~~~~" Lots of trees were in bloom - the pear tree was gorgeous - beautiful shape. I understand it will eventually spilt down the middle due to the thin trunk. Also saw the tulip tree in bloom. I brought lots of the yellow pollen home with me. You'd think it would have blown off but no.

Not many places where you can walk on the beach in the a.m. and walk in the mountains in the p.m.

Love clam chaudah

Default A little Sat rant~~

I came home to see that once again they have torn up every darn street in the entire area. The most direct route had one lane open when I drove through at 12:30 a.m. and was totally closed the next morning. Now we have to drive a mile out of our way to get to grocery etc... which is less than a mile from here. It will stay that way til 2 weeks before the next snow.

They are renovating the bridge so last night - all night - I heard thud thud wham thud thud wham~~ALL night. They closed down a main interstate til Mon a.m. to get that part done.

OK - carry on.

Oh, wow - that sounds like HEAVEN!

Beautiful weather in the mountains today . . . everyone and his/her dog and best friend is out and about today, lol. It is as though the floodgates were opened and people are pouring out into the daylight!!!!

Too much congestion for me . . . so I retreated back home and decided to do the laundry -- and read for a while outside.

We are going to have a hard freeze two nights this coming week, but for all "practical purposes," SPRING IS FINALLY HERE!!!!!

Enjoy your day, Tuborg!!!

Last week spring burst out around here in a big way. All the forsythia, daffodils, redbuds, cherry trees, magnolias are in peak bloom.

It is 75 F today and is very sunny ... more like summer than spring. I decided to walk to my favorite coffee shop for breakfast this morning (still humming to myself the songs from last night's performance of Rent), about 10 blocks from my house. On the way to the coffee shop, just two blocks from my home was a magnolia tree in the front yard of a large old Victorian mansion in full bloom. I never saw a magnolia as big as this ... at least 40 or 50 feet tall, as tall as the four story house itself, with an impressive canopy completely covered with orchid-pink tinged white blossoms. The very breeze was perfumed with it's gorgeous scent.

Yes, they love me and I love them. I am becoming an institution at the University of Pennsylvania. I have several "pets" including a few foreign exchange students.

Thank you.

Wisteria is gorgeous now here in Hotlanta. All the blooming trees and jonquils were more beautiful than usual this year. I wonder if maybe that is because of the extra snow we had this winter...
