Post cards from Branch Brook Park

Is there anything more wonderful than that first string of seventy-degree days in the spring?

Everything is more beautiful suddenly: the sun, the clouds, the lovely chartreuse of new leaves…  even the rain feels more optimistic.

It’s warm enough at night to leave a bedroom window slightly open, and to shed the heavy Winter blanket in favor of a much-loved Spring-and-Summer quilt.

Who needs an alarm clock when you’ve got cheerful neighborhood birds to wake you from your sleep?

This is road trip weather.  Open the windows wide open, favorite Springtime music cranked up, singing along loudly and with feeling, weather.

I ask you, does it get any better than this?

Having a lovely time.  Wish you were here. 🙂
