Cross-Country Connections is a Biodork weekly blog entry dedicated to telling stories in pictures of three family members – me, my sister and Mom – living in very different locations across the country. Every week we choose a different theme and then take or contribute a personal photo that fits the theme. This week’s theme is Spring.
From Erin in Takoma Park, Maryland:

From Mom in Carbondale, Illinois:
From me in Minneapolis, Minnesota:
The grass is trying really, really hard to be…well…not frozen. It’s a start.
