This morning I took a walk with my friend and took this photo. Yes, the first day of spring and the skunk cabbage is growing along the streams. New plant to me http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lysichiton_americanus
So while I was strolling in the warm weather this spring day, my sister was shovelling freshly, fallen snow onto already high snowbanks. Ahh, forgotten memories? Nope. I remember well. In the morning she sent a photo of her backyard, well, I think it was her backyard. Couldn’t see it under all that snow! She sent her Merry Christmas wishes for the day. In turn, I sent her this photo of skunk cabbage. I told her I really wasn’t bragging but, here’s my “Happy New Year” photo to her “Merry Christmas” photo. A fair exchange, I think. It didn’t stop there for this afternoon while she shovelled – again – I sent her a photo of me cutting the grass in our front yard. Yup, she could see the yard amongst the grass! :))
Happy Equinox no matter where you live and no matter what you’re doing on this day.
My sister and I were just having a bit of fun.
