Thanks to the virus and the thunder, I didn't get to tell you about the hike Ellen and I took on Friday. We had an excellent adventure (is there any other kind?), but as you can see in this photo of a large beaver pond... everything except the pine tree is still brown. Brown!
I tell, you, I am really getting tired of brown and gray. I am grasping at any straw of something bright. In the cemetery, the tiniest of sprigs are poking through. On the left is the Fragile Fern. After three years of trying to ID this, I think I'm secure in calling it that. On the right, the very first blooming wildflower, a tiny common violet. I'll take it!
The rain started last night. We've needed it SO badly. It rained all day. I called my computer geek, and decided to pay to have the virus removed. It was a bad one. My virus software could find it, but said that it couldn't access it. My real life geek said that she had to actually delete the registry files and copy them over from one of her computers, after cleaning the virus. The color of today was also brown, but this is a rich brown. It's the color of Chocolate Zucchini Bread. Yes, you've seen this recipe before. We really love this. We use it for a dessert, not a bread.
And for the frosting... at dusk, it began to snow. Will spring EVER get here?
