savoring spring




“i knew when spring was come-
not by the murmurous hum
of bees in willow-trees,
or frills
of daffodils,
or scent of the breeze;
but because there were whips and tops
by the jars of lollipops
in the two little village shops…”

{from the calendar by barbara euphan todd and photos are of our first hike of the season}

happy spring and happy easter!
