On Saturday I got out with Cindy to visit Nerstrand Woods State Park to see the early spring wildflowers. The weather was fantastic all weekend, and so were the flowers. We got to see nearly every one on their list--and lots of Dutchman's breeches, which was a treat. Loads of white trout lilies, clusters of bloodroot and hepatica, some spring beauties and marsh marigolds, plenty of anemones, and even some early violets in purple and yellow. And then she treated me to lunch, which made for another delight!
I have been delighted, the last few evenings, to hear a single frog calling, from somewhere close enough for me to hear. I wonder what puddle he's living in?
I forgot how crazy long it takes to do the prep-work for pass 3, but I plowed away at it for hours on Saturday and Sunday and now pass 3 of the third Geren book is off and rolling. Still running ahead of my schedule, too!
In case Saturday didn't bring enough flowers, I got a different sort of treat walking to and from the bus stop Monday morning. A whole swath of creeping charlie in full bloom, violets blooming all over, and loads of tulips in people's yards that are just about to open.
Happiness is getting items I ordered in the mail sooner than I expected!
