      Hi Julie, Still snow covered today but 60 tomorrow!! Can’t wait to get my hands in the dirt. I wish I had a ‘Bill’ at my place to help with the results of my over zealous planting. Love your beautiful New Zealand (yes, I remember) crops.

    OH yea, spring has sprung, but I cheated…when winter was nipping at my heels, southbound I went, and still am.

    A wonderful poem woven in between great photographs.

      Hi Connie, Lucky you. There’s nothing like getting off a plane from the cold north and taking a big whiff of fresh green. Enjoy your trip and thanks for reading.
