Spring in the Air

The daffodils are poking their little green shoots up through the leaves all around me at the house. This is a very special time for me. My wife, Erika, gets so happy when the first signs of spring arrive. So, for me, the first sign of spring means seeing the joy in my wife’s eyes. This all sounds a little overdramatized, but you need to keep in mind that we have planted several hundred bulbs each year for the last six years. There are probably over a thousand little green shoots poking up. In just a few weeks, the property will be overflowing with flowers……..

Mark, I'm amazed. Your essays read very well--I read them all. They are reminiscent of Kirsten's essays in the Ephraim Faience Pottery newsletter.
I don't yet understand how blogs work; this is the first time I've ever read one.
thanks for the tomato seeds.

Now I know how I will keep up with you - well done on the blog, Mark. I enjoyed it very much. Hope to see you soon.

Yeah, I know, how unprofessional! And so it goes.

Thanks Suzanne,
I seem to get myself into these things, you know? I like the unprofessional new you. Much better.
The tomato plants are 4" tall now. Let me know if you'd like a few. I have 80. Yes, 80 individual plants, four of each variety.
Be well, I think of you often.
