Our temperature reached 53°F (11.7°C) today, and it’s supposed to be in the 50s all weekend with rain (blessed rain!) predicted for Saturday and Sunday. There is that hint of seasonal promise in the air and on a hunch, with my mental fingers crossed, I went out to have a look at the spot in the front flower bed where the first crocuses appear. And my optimism was rewarded! Although there are no blossoms yet, the first leaf shoots are pushing their way up through the blanket of last autumn’s leaves.
Ebullient with the promise of more new growth in the immediate future, with the rain’s help, I felt a warm wave of playfulness come over me, and I dipped into the filter gallery and had some fun, finally settling on the fresco. Happy awakenings, and be playful!
