Ok, this is more like it.
The snow we got a few days ago has melted,
now it's business as usual in the garden.
Things are happening out there.
This pretty glass basket vase was my Grandma Marianna's.
It reminds me of Spring and of the handmade May Day baskets
my sister and I would hang on our neighbors’ doorknobs when we were kids.
What fun it was to ring their doorbell and hide,
then watch them act surprised to find our paper baskets
full of violets and dandelions.
I wish people still did that.
