Thank you for this note of encouragement. We still seem along way off here, but it can change quickly… Love those first buds of spring.
I love them too. But they sometimes seem like teases. It’s supposed to snow here tomorrow. There’s no rushing Mother Nature I reckon.

Ours too. And lots of daffodils starting to pop up all over the place from plantings long ago.
Many of the azaleas are in bloom here now, especially those on the south side of homes. Of course the landscape plantings are doing beautifully – poppies, snapdragons, pansies. I miss the excitement of the first sprouts after a long winter – we’re rarely without some kind of color.
The seasons are just different everywhere aren’t they. In Florida, where we lived for so long, vegetables are grown in the winter.
Changing subjects, I’m curious about the “shoreacres” name. I’m re-reading Bill McKibben’s Deep Economy and in it he mentions a restaurant in Vermont called Shore Acres. Just wondering about the story behind it in your case.
Oh – it’s really kind of silly. When I was starting my wordpress blog, I had to come up with a name. (I wasn’t smart enough then to know I should use the title of my blog – and I still haven’t changed that. It’s one of those things that seems fraught with danger.)
Anyway, I love the water, especially the ocean and the seashore. And, I love the country, especially the place up in the Hill Country that was a get-away for so long. It was 23 acres.
Hence: shore + acres. Why make a choice when you can have both/and?
