Spring is here! (At least at Joe Pye Towers. In my own neighborhood six days ago there was ice loading down all the tree branches [i.e. winter] - today it is 78 [i.e. summer] - tomorrow it will be .... who knows what! But just as in the country side at Joe Pye Towers, the daffodil buds, bearing up through snow and ice, frost and sun, have finally opened -- trooper trumpets!) Gracie and Sophie, still in their Easter finery, take a stroll to gather a bouquet. Enjoy! R.
