apparently warmer weather is around the bend. the old oak tree outside our bedroom window is beginning to show it. the past two years i've been planting bulbs in rings around the trunk (just began humming super furry animals..."rings around the world")... anyhow- there are loads of crocuses blooming, and little miniature irises scattered about in between. on the way are gorgeous parrot tulips and scads of daffodils and other narcissi. spring is my favorite season. ...can't believe i'm turning thirty in a couple of weeks.
