Days like this, when there are a few degrees plus, no snow and the sun shines, at least every now and then, I get such a desire to “create spring” I want to plant spring bulbs in the outdoor pots, set up garden chairs and put out blankets and have a cup of coffee on the stairs … I realize that there is at least a month, or maybe even two, too early. But that does not prevent me from at least enjoy the tulips that bloom in the windows and raking away those extra last year’s leaves that snuck in from the neighbor’s yard. Just to help the spring along the way a little bit.
Vigo seems to be longing a bit for spring and the fishing season too, because he has been hanging in a fishing lure in the glass jar that currently works as a vase. It looks quite nice, I think, so it can hang there, at least until he needs it to attract some real fish.
