At the Morning Walk Café...

... emerge!

Careful out there if you're going to get some skittles and tea.

I sent creative writing students out for a morning walk. We're in the Catskills. A fog sits over the Delaware River valley but burns off generally about 10:30 am and so they watched it lift, like an opera curtain, revealing crows, bluejays, robins, and other songs bringing in the new season which opened just yesterday. Many moods lifted, too.

Do you have pictures from this time last year? I'd be interested to see the differences in plant emergence.

edutcher said...

Love scenes like that.

Thank you, Madame.

Especially since they're more often seen in May than March.

Anywhere near Casa Meadhouse?

MadisonMan said...

May 10th, last year. We'll see when we get there this year.

At present, is the Republicans' problem that the party does not have leaders, or that the leaders do not have a party?

MadisonMan said...

Is that the Carriage House for the Bradley House?

The one for sale?

Record high set to be broken today in WNY. Possibly 80 by mid-afternoon...getting an early start on spring yard clean-up and some vitamin D in the form of sunlight.

Hostas are exploding out in my back yard.

Quite pleasant and welcome.

Oh, you people and your awesome weather...

We may be in the middle of our "rainy season", but we have a couple more gray whales swimming in the bay. Beats hostas any time!

Forsythias forward. No retreat into winter is allowed!

My Johnny Jump Ups have all come up. I ran into a local TV weatherman in the supermarket, I stopped him to ask about the trend for this spring, he said we will continue to see above normal temps into summer, maybe not this warm, but no more 30's.

Spring in Wisconsin, especially this early, what could be better? The pics are amazing.

All in all, the Demos' problems are bigger.

Too many trees
Means you got no grass
Just creepy crawly ivy.

So chop them trees down
To lie on grass
And look up at the sky-ey.

First weed, probably yellow rocket.

My magnolia is in full bloom today. That typically means frost is on the horizon.

I do, however, remain an optimist. My humming bird feeder is locked and loaded and waiting patiently for its first customer.

Christy said...

Redbuds are looking great here.

The liberals are much more interested in bringing down Florida's Stand Your Ground law - claiming that the law pulled the trigger - ignoring the fact that the neighborhood trigger-man was/is a rabid racist.

Supreme Court clips the wings of the EPA

Lovely path, delicate tiny flowers. Blue green with wisps of yellow in the trees. Anticipation in the air.

In CA we're still in winter mode. How weird is that?

Rusty said...

In a concurring opinion, Justice Samuel Alito said the government’s position would have “put the property rights of ordinary Americans entirely at the mercy” of EPA employees.

Well. It's a start.

Thanks Tosa.

What no one's going for the obvious?

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

NYT: "Beginning in April, nonsubscribers will have access to 10 free articles per month on instead of 20. To learn more, click..."

Is there an enforceable difference between 10 and 20, or even 10 and 1? In other words, wake me when the number is zero.
