Jack’s Walk

The First Day of Spring ©voyager, all rights reserved

Happy First Day of Spring, everyone. Yesterday was a bit of a melting day around here and early this morning the pond at the park was almost completely open water. By the end of the day I expect any remaining ice will be gone. Best of All? It might be a bit hard to see, but the willow trees are starting to look fuzzy with early buds. The willows are the first trees at the park to get leaves and I could jump up and down with excitement that I can actually see some promise of green. It was quite overcast when Jack and I were out, but the sun is shining now and it’s warm enough to even feel like a fine spring day. I hope all of you are having a fine first of spring day, too.

    It was find enough here for me to have two loads of washing out on the line, neither are completely dry yet but there’s no rain forecast so I’m leaving them out overnight. I love the smell of line dried laundry and how it varies over the year.

    I love that smell, too. It’s especially nice when the bedsheets are freshly off the line and the smell surrounds you.
