Spring 2010

I saw the first red shoots of spring plants in my front-year flower bed, and the first green shoots of crocus in a neighbor’s. There’s a dense fog in Chicago as the snow on the ground and the ice in the earth condense into the warmer but still chilly air. Tomorrow the air will smell earthy. The season is transitioning, and it’s hard not to get excited by the signs, even though we know better in Chicago than to think about spring so soon.
